Dirtiest fun run reaches sell-out stage

2015-04-30 17:31

Nelson Mandela Bay’s dirtiest fun run, the Muck Run presented by the Edge Financial Group, has received overwhelming response this year with one of the three races already sold out and just a hand full of entries still remaining.

The Muck Run is a fun charity driven untimed 5km obstacle course established by non-profit events company Zports Events NPC which sees individual and team participants tackling over 10 obstacles through the 5km bush course including a 30m slip and slide, cattle dip, swamp crossing, zap trap and mud crawl.

Each year the event appeals to participants and spectators to donate unwanted clothing and their dirty race kit to charity with this year’s donations being collected for Khaya Cheshire in Walmer Township.

The 5km run starts 15:00 on Saturday, April 18 and another at 10:00 on Sunday, 19th whilst children 12 years and under, who are unsure of the 5km distance, have their own 2km obstacle course on the Saturday afternoon.

Late entries at just R150 for the 5km and R100 for the kids race are available online at www.muckrun.co.za. Participants are encouraged to dress up for the event with awesome prizes from Woodlands Dairy up for grabs.

Collection of race packs will be at the Wellness Hub at 2 Ascot Road (cnr Connyngham road and Ascot Road) between 11:00 and 18:00 on April 16. The Muck Run is hosted at Bushpig Adventures off Lakeside Road, Seaview. Gates open at 12:00 on April 18 and at 08:00 on April 19
