Mudstacle FAQs










When/where do I select which course I am completing – 1M, 2.5K, or 5K?

The registration fee is the same for all distances.  All courses start and end at the same locations and you can decide which route to take while you are on the course.

Does everyone run at the same time or in waves?
The first wave will start shortly after 8:30am.  The first 3 waves are open waves – anyone that wants to run early, before the crowd, etc.  After those initial waves we release “flexible” team waves every 5-8 minutes.  These are created to help schools/teams run together but are in no way limited to only those schools/teams.  If you are running with group 3 or 4 , you can arrive later or come early and enjoy all the family-fun activities!
Group 1 – Open Division waves starting at 8:30 am
Wave 1: Open division – any registered participant
Wave 2: Open division – any registered participant
Wave 3: Open division – any registered participant
*Each open division wave will be closed when maximum number allowed per wave has been reached.

**If you need to leave early or come late, please feel free to join a different wave*

Do I have to run with my registered school team?

No. It is not required that you run with your school team – if you need to run earlier or later that is fine.  We will email & post the wave schedule 3-4 days before the Mudstacle.

Is there a minimum age required to participate in the Mudstacle?

No – BUT children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult on the course

When are where can I pick up my race bag (race number, t-shirt, other goodies)?

We will have two different early packet pickups.  Thank you, Wired Orthodontics for sponsoring this event and providing us packet pick-up locations!
Thursday packet pickup: 3:00-6:00pm  Four Points Orthodontics (new Wired Orthodontics location):  6611 Sitio Del Rio Blvd, Austin, TX 78730
Friday packet pickup: 3:00-7:00pm Wired Orthodontics: 1464 E. Whitestone Blvd., Suite 1501, Cedar Park, TX 78613 (turn at the business park entrance next to Raising Canes)
**You can also pick up Saturday morning before the Mudstacle starting at 7:15am

I just registered and was notified that I was not guaranteed a race t-shirt.  Why?

LEEF has to order the t-shirts two weeks prior to the event and while we always order many more than already registered – we have to make a guess.  We don’t want to have hundreds leftover because that would be wasting funds that could go to many great LEEF initiatives, so after the order date the t-shirts are first-to-register, first-to-have-tshirt.  As of 10/1 all registered runners will have a t-shirt – we have about 300 shirts left and approximately 75-100 registrations are coming in each day…so register early 🙂
