Muddy Mortal Chicago

Introducing the world’s FIRST obstacle course race inspired by the world of magic and wizardry!

Join all of your mud-covered magical friends as they navigate their way over obstacles that only a witch or wizard worth their wand would know how to overcome…fire-burning cauldrons, the slythering wall, and the Witch’s Pit! The 5k (3.1 mile) course is comprised of 12 wizarding obstacles to defeat, some of which may require a helping wand from a fellow witch or wizard. This is it. THIS is what you’ve been waiting for. Register today to secure your spot in what we anticipate will be a sold-out event!

THIS IS AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE.

The Muddy Mortal is SO much more than just a 5k obstacle course race. Our magical gates open on the afternoon of Friday, October 6, 2017 to kick off the weekend festivities with live entertainment by Wizard Wrock bands and exciting Wizard Games in the festival village. Saturday is a FULL day of enchanting experiences beginning with the Muddy Mortal obstacle course race inspired by the world of magic & wizardry. Spectators/festival goers can cheer on their favorite mortal from the sideline or spend the day browsing the shops on Merlin’s Alley, participating in the numerous events and activities in Crone’s Corner festival square, or watching their favorite teams compete on the quidditch pitch. The choice is yours. On Saturday evening, you’ll want to come dressed to impress in your wizard best and join us for our Wizard Wrockfest and enjoy a mug of Witch’s Brew. For those of you holding a ticket to the Fantastic Feast, you’ll join us under a canopy of stars for this very special seat-limited “farm to fork” feast filled with fresh locally, sourced flavorful fare.
