About

About

The Warrior Princess Mud Run is a non-competitive 5K adventure run and obstacle course designed for women and men of all fitness levels. The event is the largest fundraiser of the year for Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs and over 1,300 participants have raised over $90,000 each year!

This isn’t a timed event, so there’s no pressure to beat a certain time, only the incentive to complete the course to become a true “Warrior Princess,” joining the fight to end domestic violence. As we all know, sometimes life ain’t no fairy tale, but even when the going gets tough, the toughest look better wearing a crown—and a little mud!

Get Muddy for a Mission

Unlike other popular mud run events, ALL proceeds from this event go to support Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs and the agency’s work to end domestic violence in our community.

About Harbor House

Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs leads a community-wide partnership in the awareness and prevention of domestic violence and abuse. The organization also offers safety and support to diverse families and individuals in crisis. Established in 1984, Harbor House is the only organization offering safe haven and outreach programming to victims and survivors of domestic abuse throughout Outagamie and Calumet counties. Each year the organization serves more than 1,600 children and adults.

Obstacles

Hover over an obstacle number to view more information about it.

Queen of the Hill

Once upon a time in a land not so far away, stood a steep, muddy, and slippery hill waiting to be claimed. Be the first one to the top to earn your crown and enjoy the view of your kingdom. Beware; this obstacle is crueler than it looks!

1
Wicked Step Mother’s Steps

Prove your confidence and bravery by escaping your wicked step mother. Do this by climbing up 10 rungs and flying down a big blow up slide into the arms of your fairy godmother.

2
Don’t Fall in Love (with the Big Bad Wolf)

A poor little pig’s log cabin has blown over, and his logs are spread all over our field. Be careful not to trip as the big bad wolf may be coming for you. Run through this obstacle and escape his ferocious paws.

3
Hansel and Gretel

Be ready to crawl, duck, and dodge, as you make your way to the witch’s house. Remember the outside of the house may look appealing, but getting through it is the true treat. Don’t forget to leave a trail of breadcrumbs in case you get lost!

4
Disenchanted Forest

Within this dark and gloomy forest, your elementary school skills will be tested, as you will have to swing across monkey bars to keep off its muddy ground. Also, be sure to dodge the forest’s silly monkeys!

5
Rapunzel’s Revenge

Scale an 8-foot wall with the help of long braided ropes. Climbing other participants’ hair is not recommended, but giving them a boost up sure is!

6
What a Tangled Web We Weave

Don’t get caught up in a tangled web of lies! Keep a good pace and use teamwork as you weave your way through this obstacle’s spider web of string.

7
Princess Fiona’s Fallopian Tubes

Get through Shrek’s swamp by crawling through huge, muddy drainage pipes. You’re on your own with this one as your fearless steed is preoccupied with a dragon.

8
Muddy Moat Mayhem

Mayhem can make you mad! Take control and find your way through this mud pit full of obstacles. The various logs and the occasional alligator may make this obstacle more difficult than it seems.

9
Noodleham Forest

You don’t need Robin Hood to get through this forest. High step through tires and push through its pool noodles. Also, be sure to listen up because the noodles have bells on them to break the silence of domestic abuse.

10
Bippity Boppity Beam

While there is no magic spell to get over the muddy spots of life, you can find your inner balance and use the logs to cross this obstacle.

11
Cinderella’s Muddy Slippers

Going through this obstacle is quite the chore. Step in and out of giant oil barrels to make it to the ball on time.

12
No Guts No Glory

Get ready for the ride of your life. This is no magic carpet, but you will be sure to have fun. Race down the waterslide and land comfortably in a gooey pit of what used to be Cinderella’s magical pumpkin carriage.

13
Little Mermud

This obstacle’s big cargo net might force you to go “under the sea” to tackle this mud pit!

14
Cinderella’s Carriage Crawl

Make your way through our carriage to have it take you to a wonderful, violence-free life. This carriage may not take you to the ball, but it will take you to the finish line.
