So you think you have what it takes to tackle The Mudder? This filthy and fun event will be back at Rangitikei Farmstay on 25th September and better than ever.
So what makes The Mudder unique? If you ask the entrants from previous years they will all tell you different things but one thing they all agree on is that this course is up there with the best. This is no flat, dawdle around some obstacle course on the edge of suburbia. The rugged hill country of the southern Rangitikei makes for plenty of lung burning and calf aching even before you throw in the obstacles. The course is designed to use the natural assets of the working sheep and beef farm it is hosted on. Many of the obstacles are based on natural springs that see guaranteed mud all year round. There is a dam with a floating island to crawl over, a 100 year old tree with roots straight out of a Hobbit scene and plenty of dams, bogs, and hills. Throw in some man made obstacles and you have a course that guarantees fun, laughter and a great day out.
There will be some new obstacles for 2021 but exactly what they are will be kept secret until closer to the event. With 3km, 5km or 8km course options, The Mudder has something to suit both elite athletes and complete novices. Enter as a business or family for great team building or as a single if you are looking for a personal challenge. Costumes are welcome and encouraged and there will be some great prizes for the best dressed teams and individuals.
As in 2020, we are once again promoting the benefits of exercise on your mental health. The Mudder provides a great day out with friends, family or just by yourself and we see it as a great way to “Move your body, Shift your mind”
So 2021 promises to be the best event ever. We will once again have live music at the venue, food and drink options will be improved and once again the course will see some changes. We don’t want to give too much away but rest assured it will be better than ever before.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 25th September.
