Muddy Good Run

This is a Muddy Good Run in Rakaia, starting and finishing in the Rakaia Domain. You will have the choice of 1 lap being 5k’s or 2 laps being 10k. This event will cater for all, young, old, family, team, work mate or just a mate.

Children's race is a 1.5k fun run taking in 5 mud pits 2 slippery slides and hay bales, heaps of fun fun fun for the family.

You will start in the Rakaia Domain and then run out the back of the Domain to the Rakaia riverbed where you will run through private property - going over and under certain obstacles, up hills, down hills though water/mud, to the Rakaia Pony Club cross country course where you will take in some of this magic. A water jump, more water, horse jumps. Then back to the Rakaia Domain with a wee slide to contend with and some more water a few suprises and then the Finish. Did we mention cars to crawl under in the mud and others to climb over, Oh what about the water bins, did we mention... I must have forgotten some obstacles, mud in my ears, eyes mind!

Prize giving picnic atmosphere with Cassie Henderson entertaining.

If you do the 5k you do this once - if you’re the athlete you believe you are - you will do this twice in which case you should enter the 10k event.

This type of event will challenge not only your running and walking skills, it will test your cardio vascular system. There is water and mud, tyres to run through, wire to crawl under, fences to scale, bales of hay to climb over, mud, a slippery slide and water “did I mention the electric fence?”

If you have any valuables you want to stuff, then this is the event to wear them in. Don’t wear anything that is valuable, watches, rings, necklace, earings as you may lose or damage them. We take no responsibility for your personal affects that don’t work after this event.

We have a number of categories for the event but the best way is to enter is with a friend so you can help each other out, or bring a couple of friends to make it that much easier.

We have the best dressed Team, male and female, a corporate event - with a trophy for the winner to put up in office.

We have Individual male, female; Teams, male, female, mixed, family, corporate. Teams are of 4 and must have a maximum of 2 males in the mixed teams, and this makes it fair for the boy’s. If there are 3 males in a team and 1 female, the female will become a male for the day.

Men are from Mars women are from Venus, nah we come from the same place in the mud!

To be part of Muddy Good Run you need to enter now just by clicking on the enter now tab and follow your nose. If you don’t know how to follow your nose and you do enter, you’ll need to learn how to by Sunday 19 October as you’ll have it full of mud on the day and this maybe all you can see.
