Being Ready of the Day of Mud
Mud Run Ride is a day you get to spend with your racing buddy. It is good to be prepared before you hit the start line:
Make sure your bike is ready for the trails. Check the brakes, tire pressure, and that all the nuts are tightened. If you need a tune up, stop by Swicked Cycles and they can check things out for you.
When you are on the bike, you need to have a helmet. We highly recommend that each of your race with your own helmet.
You will get muddy when you cross the line. Bring a change of clothes with you so you can be ready to head down to Boston Pizza for our awards presentations.

We like costumes. Stand out in the crowd and dress up in something fun. And a pre race prize for the best costume by audience vote.
We don’t know what the weather will hold for us so be ready for rain, sun, wind and cloud.
