Mud Run 2013

Event Date: Saturday 30 Nov 2013

The Grubbiest Fun Run …

Welcome to the most bizarre, most thrilling, and by ‘eck, the grubbiest event on the planet. The ultimate fun run, created for the thrill-seekers among us, being held in Sydney.
Join thousands of wacky-racers that will run, crawl or even belly-flop your way through 7km of mud-pits, bog-holes and rivers oozing with thick, cold, gooey muck.


Whether you’re a fanatical runner or a self-confessed couch potato, the Mud Run is for everyone.

Join the Volunteer Team and make this great event possible. Volunteers will be able to participate as well.

It will be an amazing event, so REGISTER YOUR INTEREST now on the left side of the page.
