ALL eyes will be on Bushpig Adventures this weekend as The Edge Muck Run takes place on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning in what promises to be the most exciting 5km fun run of the year.

Fun and laughs for the whole family guaranteed as children 12 years and under get to tackle a 2km obstacle course on Saturday afternoon from 2pm with the adults 5km version taking place at 3pm Saturday and again at 10am on Sunday.

This year the Edge Muck Run will feature what is believed to be South Africa’s largest slip and slide which adds to the 15-plus obstacles and 3 water tables along the route; participants will get to jump, climb, slide and crawl their way through the bush, mud and water in what has become one of the most exciting obstacle races in the Eastern Cape.

The festival atmosphere over the weekend is backed by an array of vendors, the Castle Lite Beer Garden and the Woodlands Dairy Kids Zone which spectators and participants can enjoy after having gone through the Builders Warehouse Gardena ‘Clean your Muck’ shower station.

Another new addition to the Muck Run this year will be the Fresh Laundry foam obstacle as Fresh Laundry join the Muck Run to offer support in cleaning all the clothing which is donated after the event.

The charity component of the Edge Muck Run has always been the donation of all unwanted clothing, bedding and blankets and the dirty race clothing and shoes.

Register soonest on www.MuckRun.co.za to secure your place in this year’s Edge Muck Run. Vehicle entry into the event this weekend will be R20 per vehicle and entry into Bushpig Adventures is off Lakeside Road between Seaview Road and Kragga Kamma Road. Gates open at 12 noon on Saturday and 8am on Sunday.

PE’s Urban Run concept huge hit in EL

Thanks to the support of the Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency, PE’s Urban Run charity event concept was a huge hit on the weekend in East London as participants tackled the city in support of CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation. Just over R50 000 was raised for CHOC with the Urban Run having to rewrite its history books as the adult philanthropist, Beanie Beard, raised R10 500 and the kids philanthropist, Sarah Kruger, raised just over R3 000. Photographs and video are available on the Urban Run South Africa Facebook page. The Urban Run returns to PE in early September to tackle the City for Charity see www.urbanrun.co.za for info.
