2014 Amuck Header

Run Amuck and Mini-Run Amuck participants begin the journey on an imposing inflatable obstacle before scampering across the Lejeune Hall parking lot and turning right onto a service road for a quarter-mile dash. At McCard Road, participants venture off-road to tackle the "Honor, Courage, Commitment" logs, then the balance beam log followed by eight monkey bars. A refreshing cool off jog through the water misters leads participants to the hillside slip 'n' slide. A sprint around the Butler Stadium track precedes a set of crunches before a brutal bleacher stair-climb. After a quick tire jump drill, the course bounds over an A-frame wall. Here, Mini-Run Amuckers turn left and divert from the longer Run Amuck course.

Mini Run Amuckers proceed through a pipe tube crawl and cross the small bridge to the mud pit and cargo net climb. As Run Amuckers hurdle over hay bales, flutter kick, float through tire drills, crawl through the pipes, hit the Water Point, then proceed to Fire Break Trail to crawl through the first mud pit. After that, it's up the hill. Hit the spider web. Untangle and complete the jumping jacks then the ammo-can-carry. Pass the water point again. Around the corner lurks Director's Hill. Descend into the mud pit and cargo net climb. After the mud pit is the final water station. What's left?  Push-ups, the hanging-ball obstacle and a rappel into the mud pit before taking on the final hill before finishing.  The fire truck rinse awaits. After runners finish, it's time to enjoy hospitality, including Italian Ice, the Mic Ultra beer tent, music, hosted booths, and military display vehicles! Changing tents available, too. 


Run Amuck and Mini Run Amuck begin at 7:00 a.m. with waves starting hourly through 11:00 a.m. Participants will select a preferred starting wave during Packet Pick-up. Those attempting to run as a group may opt to move to a later wave to join friends. Runners may not join an earlier wave. Within each wave, Run Amuck will launch participants in a continuous manner, sending them to the first challenge, an inflatable obstacle course. Mini Run Amuck participants will be detoured from the longer course to follow the two-mile route.

Waves are designated by colors that correspond to the artwork on each bib. The colored background on Run Amuck bibs and the colored numbers on Mini Run Amuck bibs indicate the runner's wave starting time.
