The reason we continue to host the Ultimate Challenge now as it has always been is to honor the sacrifices of our Marines and Veterans and do our part by donating all proceeds from our events to charities.

In 2013, the Ultimate Challenge MudRun donated nearly $100,000 to charities such as the Greater Columbia Marine Foundation, Renovations to a Columbia Veterans Home, and Local High School ROTC Programs


We do not accept individual enlistments, only teams!

Established in 1993, the "Legendary" Ultimate Challenge Mud Run is a 501c (3) non- profit organization that has grown to attract enlistee's from across the United States, Canada and around the world.

Dont be fooled by "MudRun" in our name, this is no 5k with a couple of mudholes and a few cheesy obstacles. We are now and always have been a Obstacle Race, designed and built by a Former Marine DI, with 36 military style obstacles spread over 6.2 miles during the day/ 5k with 20 obstacles at Night with Marines to "motivate" your team at each one.

Blood Clots...Bones Heal...Sweat Dries...

Pride is FOREVER!

No empty promises, you will sweat, you will probably bleed, and yes, you might break some bones. Somewhere on the Leatherneck you will find the point where you think you can't go any further and you will push on. If you conquer the course, your team's sense of accomplishment and pride will be with you forever!

What to expect from the Leatherneck

You will be challenged both physically and mentally. You will crawl through mud, water, and over obstacles just like our veterans do in training. Our obstacles are built with the same materials and techniques as used in military training courses around the world.



Think you have what it takes... THINK you can face the Ultimate Challenge?

Well, what are you waiting for?

Prove it!



Thank you for your support of the Ultimate Challenge Mud Run!
