My Groupon said I would get automatically upgraded a shirt but they wouldn't let me. They also didn't have as many obstacles as advertised.

It was fun, the shower was awesome and all the booths. Race was good, except they had the same obstacle of crawling under wood in the mud like 5 times at least. It got pretty old they could have come up with different ones than that. But was a great event.

Absolutely terrible. They took out 95% of the water obstacles and it was basically a run around the dirt track. Huge disappointment and waste of money.

The mud run itself was a great time! However, I was disappointed by the groupon offer. We paid extra to specifically get the first wave group. When we went to register we were assigned a 12:30 start time which was part of wave 2. When we asked to be given the deal we purchased we were each charged an additional $5. On top of that you are charged a mandatory $7 fee for insurance when registering. It's not about the money but it felt like the deal wasn't straight forward and we were incurring charges at every step. I would suggest next year make these fees inclusive when you purchase the groupon so people don't feel like you are being mislead. Also, if honor the wave the customer is purchasing.

This was our first time to the kids expo and my daughter and niece had a great time. Their both in kindergarten and were able to enjoy all the attractions. They had the wristband so they were able to get to all the attractions as many times as they wanted. Theirs food, face painting, live music. My daughter got to meet and take pictures with Rapunzel her favorite princess. The only con that I could think of it's that area where they have the jumpers/bouncy house staff needs to designate jumpers per age because few kids got hurt.

Many different activities, could have been better organized, but a fun event for children of early elementary age.

We loved it! My kids really enjoyed,we arrived early to avoid a long waiting in lines so by the time everybody arrives,my kids were exhausted.

The event itself was pretty fun. I just don't like the fact that there are exceedingly long lines for all the rides. I guess that really isn't the fault of the event organizers, but, it really is a bummer.

From Our Editors

The mud sucks at arms and legs. A horned helmet tumbles into the muck, sinking out of sight, as a crowd of bodies above surges forward. The end of the pit comes into sight, and someone, dripping and muddy, crests the edge, reaching back to help the person behind them. This may be a race, but the after party at the finish line will be more fun with friends in tow. Welcome to the Del Mar Mud Run.

The five-kilometer race wends a new course through historic Del Mar Fairgrounds every year, pitting runners against 12 or more obstacles. Those that don't involve mud tend to make use of foam, or involve tasks that are especially challenging when hands are slick and slippery. Racers might wade through pits, jump chasms, balance across tight ropes, or scale walls, earning the t-shirt and free beer that await them at the end of the course. The organizers encourage people to wear costumes, as long as those costumes involve shoes that cover the ankle. Otherwise, the mud tends to suck shoes right off feet, adding them to its collection of things to wear once it finally has a body.
