The week is finally here! Ruckus Kansas City is only a few days away, and hopefully you are as excited as we are.
Sign up! Wednesday night at midnight is the deadline to sign up for Ruckus Kansas City, so first and foremost, make sure you have your heat time set up. Then you are all set for the big day Saturday!
Arrive on time! The Ruckus KC mud obstacle course is located at the Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, MO. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to arrive well before your race, as there may be traffic. Also, parking is $10 per vehicle, so we recommend carpooling.
Check in! Once you have arrived, check-in with a photo I.D. one hour before race time and receive your pre-race information. There are three different levels of course difficulty (Challenge, Heater and Mini), along with divisions for Men’s Open, Men’s Master (45+), Women’s Open and Women’s Master (45+). Be sure to show up for the correct one – we don’t want anyone accidentally competing in the 4-mile race instead of the 2-mile (yikes!).
Dress appropriately! You will be running, crawling and climbing through some challenging terrain, so we suggest wearing comfortable clothing you wouldn’t mind dirtying. Previous participants have also suggested wearing pants, gloves and even costumes for some great photo-ops.
Celebrate! Stick around after the race for some great food and adult beverages (for those of age, of course). Saturday is going to be a fun, challenging and memorable day for everyone involved. Don’t miss out on the excitement and entertainment that is Ruckus Kansas City!
See you soon, KC!
