All children will race in their specific age group based on their age at 27th March 2022 "no parents run with the 7-13-year-old children". The Children Run by themselves although we do have a Family Race later. Children can race in their age group and then do the Families race although they have to be registered for the 2 races separately.
The 4-6-year-olds will run next. The Junior KIDZ Mud Run; 500 metres and will require a Parent or Guardian to run with the child.
One very important thing, you must wear shoes and a recommendation is to tape these on!!!!

Once the Family race has finished we will do the Children's Prize Giving. The KIDZ Mud Run and Family Race are both non-competitive. Prize giving is for first across the line in each age group and Spot Prizes. To receive a Category or Spot Prize the Children must be present to collect. the event is all about having fun and very few participants actually race the event.

All Finishers will receive the awesome Muddy Good Run Finishers MEDAL.
The 10km Individual will start first, then Individual 5km, followed by Teams. Estimated start time for the adults is 12.15pm.
All competitors will run, walk, crawl, climb, slide around the park and finish a different colour than you started. Throughout the event you will be going over and under certain obstacles, up man-made obstacles, slide down obstacles through water/mud, to the finish line taking in some of this magic.
A water jump, more water, horse jumps, mud, cars to crawl under in the mud, cars to climb over, trucks, hay bails, containers, scaffolding, water bins, slippery slides, camo net crawls, cargo net climbs.
At the Finish we'll have a wee slide to contend with and some more water plus a few surprises before 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 and mind!!!
If you do the 5km 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 10km 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.
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 or earrings as you may lose or damage them. We take no responsibility for your personal affects that don’t work after this event.
We have had competitors lose Wedding and Engagement rings over the years, we recommend that you removed these rings from your fingers prior to taking part.
The Adults events start after children's prize-giving, with Individual 10km first, then Individual 5km followed by Teams, Teams do 5km only.
Race briefs and best dressed for all Children will be at 8:45am for Children and 12-noon for Adults.
