Take on the Miss Muddy challenge
Miss Muddy comes to town on Sunday 29 June at Doomben Racecourse, so rally up your besties for a Girl's Dirty Day Out. Miss Muddy is a five-kilometre, women's only obstacle course that will satiate your appetite for adventure. If you're aged 18 years or over, get a team together, and register for this fun, annual event celebrating sisterhood. Be prepared to get filthy and grimy for a really good cause. $10 from the proceeds of your ticket is donated to the women's charity of your choice. There are eight esteemed charities to choose from.
Put yourself to the test by pushing your physical and mental capabilities with challenging obstacles. Get down and dirty as you crawl through mud pits and foam tunnels, get sprayed with rainbow colours from the colour cannons, hurdle over hay bales, climb the rope spider's web, ride the giant waterslide, and much more. You don't need to be an elite athlete to join in the fun as there is no time limit to finish the course. If any of the obstacles are too difficult for you to contend with, there are detours you can take.
Tickets cost $60 and include one race entry, a Miss Muddy sweatband, free photos and a medal if you cross the finish line.
[ADVERT]There will be stalls selling food, drink and Miss Muddy merchandise, and live music will be provided by Ministry of Sound. Plus there is a shower station where you can clean yourself up after the race.
Charities partnering with the event promote the safety and well-being of women, and include the McGrath Foundation, Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA), Fitted for Work, The Hope Foundation, International Women's Development Agency (IWDA), Stepping Out, White Ribbon Australia, and Heartfelt.
If you want to volunteer at Miss Muddy you'll be privy to some free stuff, including a volunteer shirt, one race entry, and refreshments. As a volunteer you could be called on to help with parking, registrations, handing out water or directing participants. Shifts are a minimum of three hours.
There's no doubt Miss Muddy will be a 'gruelling' course for some, but that's all the more reason to rise to the challenge. Besides, where else can you slosh around in mud then top it off with a foam party! It's also a great way to get fit with your fave girlfriends and show the boys what warriors we females truly are. Miss Muddy isn't a dirty word after all … so go on, register now.
