Adventure Races

Adventure Races

Hosting a mud run, obstacle course, or polar plunge? BYLG works with event directors to include lifeguards in the safety and emergency response plan for adventure races with aquatic features.


Many obstacle adventure races have water features. The high rate of amateur participation, combined with the dark, dense, obscure water of many race obstacles, demands lifeguard supervision.

The overwhelming majority of adult rescues by lifeguards have occurred during adventure and mud races. Event directors enjoy peace of mind when obstacles are attended by skilled lifeguards. 

Services include:

  • Pre-race consultation with event organizers and EMS personnel.

  • Recruitment and training of lifeguards qualified to serve the event site.

  • Custom lifeguard positioning and rotation to maximize supervision for each unique event.

  • Pre-event orientation for volunteers assigned to waterfront or watercraft.

  • Pre-event swim safety orientation for participants. (Recommended)

  • Provision of standard lifeguard equipment to lifeguards and the event site.

  • On-site coordination of lifeguarding and water safety operation.

  • Post-event data report, feedback and event debriefing.
