Is the Mud Ninja a Race?

If you want it to be, it is!  Timing bibs are optional and the top 15 runners on each day will receive Mud Ninja swords.  Mud Ninja however is more about beating the voice in your head that says, “YOU CAN’T DO THAT!” every time you begin to dream big. Completing Mud Ninja silences that voice, defines who you are and injects your soul with a passion to live life to the fullest.  If you can beat the Mud Ninja, you can do anything!

How does a wave start work?
