The race takes place on Saturday, October 4, at Miller Farms in Berlin, NJ. Runners dash through a four-mile course that serves as a year-round obstacle course, traversing wooded trails, damp swamps, and burbling creeks that contain 25 military-style challenges. Along the way, more than 60 volunteers and staff members will be on hand to aid or encourage runners.
The main race welcomes solo runners or groups, including families with children age 13 and up. Children age 12 and under can participate in their own designated race, joining their parents for a shortened one-mile course or a four-mile course with modified obstacles as part of the Junior Mudders heat. All courses are inspected before the race to ensure that participants stay safe.
While runners must pre-register, spectators can present their Groupon vouchers in person on the day of the race.

The first ABF Mud Run took place on November 5th, 2011, when 500 participants charged through a track of wooded trails, swamps, and lakes. The event was a success. Today, organizers oversee multiple events throughout the year that accommodate up to 1,000 participants per run.They challenge these runners with 25 military-style obstacles, which require crawling through muddy tunnels, scaling cargo nets, and carrying 16-foot telephone poles on their shoulders—an effort that requires people to band together or bring a half-dozen clones. The experience seems grueling, but in addition to overcoming physical challenges, runners feel good about themselves for supporting charities such as Wish Upon a Hero, the YMCA, and Homes for our Troops.
