Run Amuck

Run Amuck, the MCM's messiest mud and obstacle event, offers runners arduous obstacles and plenty of mud along a four-mile course on Saturday, June 20, 2020, starting at Butler Stadium. Run Amuck offers wild fun for rowdy runners (ages 7 and up), outrageous athletes and fun-loving families.


Run Amuck participants will attack the mud trench, lumber through a low crawl, best a water blast and submerge in a super sloppy mud pit, just three of 20+ challenges that await participants along the hideously hilly course tucked into the wooden terrain of Marine Corps Base Quantico.

The event will originate in Butler Stadium where participants will create a "game face" for event day with cammie face paint and temporary tattoos to ready for wilderness exercises -- perfect for a motivated before and after selfie.

Expect many classic Run Amuck obstacles like the Quantico Fire Department water blast, tunnels, a-frames, log jumps and massive mud pits while new challenges are always certain to be introduced.

Water Points

WP1: In Mile 1 before the Spider web
WP2: In Mile 2 after the Corpsman Crawl Mud Pit

WP4: In Mile 3, before second tire drill

Aid Stations

There will be two medical aid stations on event day. One at Butler Stadium and one on course that runners will pass twice.

Runners may participate in the Run Amuck with hydration packs. All runner and spectator bags brought to the event site will be subject to search.


Runners should use the clear plastic bag provided at Packet Pick-up to store personal items on event day. Check the bag at the Baggage Area near the MCM info tent on event day, located above the Belleau Wood 8K start line at the HITT Center, and retrieve baggage from the same location after a successful finish.


Run Amuck will begin at 7:00 a.m. with waves of participants starting through 10:00 a.m. Runners are encouraged to sign up for a preferred and convenient start time. Those attempting to run as a group can always move to a later wave to join friends; however, runners may not join an earlier wave. Within each wave, Run Amuck will launch participants in a continuous manner.

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

Runner's can expect to start at anytime during the designated 25 minutes for each wave color.

Crossroads Challengers can join in any wave following their return. Recon Ruckers must maintain an 18 minute-per-mile in order to finish the Ruck in time to start Run Amuck.
