Event Organizer Website
Half Mud Run / Prison Escape Run. This run is one hell of an adventure, pitting you against nature as you attempt to escape police snipers on your way to the finish.
We have received information that numerous prisoners (you) have escaped from the Leon County Correctional Facility. Unfortunately, for you (the escapee), the prison doesn't want you to return. You are now running for your life through the forest, jumping logs, crossing creeks, and sneaking through fields in an attempt to avoid police snipers that are hot on your trail.
This event is like NO OTHER mud run. We are going to let you loose on a large tract of land in Tallahassee, Florida and it is your job to follow the trail without getting shot! That's right, it is part mud run, part prison escape adventure. We are literally going to have two snipers hidden with paintball guns. Their entire job is to take down as many prisoners as possible. The catch... they can only fire a single shot at a time! Those that survive the trail... are rewarded... those that don't, well... it's just paint...
The area that we will be running in is COMPLETELY undeveloped. This means it will be as close as we could possibly get to an actual prison break scenario without real prisoners and without real guns.
Since this area is undeveloped, there's plenty of wildlife... lots of trees... lots of scrub... and tons of places to duck and cover while running for your life.
And... during the run, we're going to have plenty of water/check stations. In these areas you will be safe from snipers, you can turn yourself in, AND of course you can enjoy the beverage of your choice. All included!
Important details / Items to bring
Loose fitting clothing that you don't mind getting torn or stained. Better safe than sorry. Bug spray, a towel, and sunscreen are also a good idea. Eye protection is MANDATORY so bring your own or we will have it available for $5. BRING CASH. There is a $5 fee for parking so we encourage carpooling! And again, BRING CASH.
What to expect
The trail itself is about 3-6 miles long depending upon how difficult we make it. This will be a game day decision based on number of total participants and of course, the weather. We will run rain or shine and may modify course due to rainfall. Expect to get muddy/wet. This IS NOT a race. It is about survival. You can run fast, but if you stray from the pack you may get hit by a paintball and ultimately lose the race. You are trying to survive!
Spectators and Food
We have plenty of space for spectators here. You can get unlimited food (burgers, salad, fruit) for $15. There is a large lake that we are going to attempt to create a spectator area around, dependent upon water levels at that time. We will do what we can to create a good space for spectators that has visual zones to see what is happening.
There will be a giveaway at the event. We rotate the type of giveaway that we use at each event. The idea isn't to register for the free stuff, the free stuff is just a way to help us market our events!
Bathrooms / Facilities
We will have portable bathrooms available on the site. As for running water, we are definitely working on this. It would be wise to bring towels and baby wipes to wipe yourself down after the event. Very good chance we should have water available... we'll just need a REALLY long hose.
All beverages are complimentary. This will include water and sports drinks. You CAN bring your own beverages if you would prefer something special, this includes beer/wine (assuming you are of age). It will not however be provided by us at this event.
