THE dirtiest race in the Eastern Cape, the Edge Muck Run, will take place in Port Elizabeth this year on April 22 and 23.

This year’s Edge Muck Run will take place at Dawson’s Farm on the corner of Kragga Kamma and Lakeside Roads.

The race is set to attract close to 1 000 participants who are keen to get down and dirty. It is not every day that adults get to behave like children and have their own kids watch them have fun rolling in the muck to collect second hand clothing for charity.

This year’s Edge Muck Run promises to be an unforgettable experience with about a dozen fun and exciting obstacles along the 5km trail run route.

Due to the number of participants taking part in the event, the 5km Muck Run will take place on Saturday, April 22, at 3pm and then be repeated on Sunday, April 23, 10am.

The Kids Edge Muck Run will also take place on the Saturday at 2pm.

Laughs, fun and spills are the order of the day with participants required to jump, climb, slide and crawl their way through the bush, mud and water in what has become one of the most exciting social obstacle races in the Eastern Cape.

Unique imported Edge Muck Run dog tag medals and an ice cold Powerade will welcome the finishers after tackling the final obstacle, a 20m mud crawl underneath barbed wire.

“This has got be one of our most exciting events which we put together and our staff is working hard at creating the new course at Dawson’s Farm, a perfect fit for this event,” said Muck Run owner, Mike Zoetmulder of Zsports Events NPC.

“The event is geared for the whole family with festival vibe all weekend and we encouraging everyone to raid their cupboards and donate all unwanted clothing for our charity collection managed by the Rotary Club of Port Elizabeth Sunrise.”
