Event:
For some muddy good fun
If you've ever wanted to give one of those 'Tough Mudder' obstacle races a good Aussie go but didn't want to combat the electric wires and ultra-competitive nature, here's your chance.

Mud Up Day is taking place at Peninsula Obstacle Course on April 18 and the best part is that it's for everyone (kids too!).

Mud Up Day kicks off on April 18 for obstacle enthusiasts to mud-pie makers.


No matter if you're a Tough Mudder in training obstacle enthusiast or just want to give it a good muddy try, this event is non-timed so you can have a great day in non-competitive race.

And if mud isn't your thing, there'll also be an outdoor market plenty of food trucks, and more.

This is NOT your average mud run!

Mud Up Day will include runs for those who love the obstacles and just want to have a bit of fun as well as 2 dedicated children's runs for those who simply can't pass up a good mud puddle!

For every adventurer, big or small in your family, Mud Up Day will have something for everyone.


Mud Up Day is one of the few obstacle challenge events that has been approved to be safe for children. That's great news for kids 8 years and older as they can team up with their friends, siblings and family to get mucky. And the best news is that proceeds from the children's runs will benefit TLC Kids, an Australian children's charity which brings a bit of extra (and often much needed) joy to hospitalised children.

The 4.5km obstacle course is located just off Peninsula Link on Tyabb Road in Mornington and is only 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD.

With 40 obstacles, this Mud Up Day is an exciting way to challenge yourself no matter your age or experience.

This year's event is proudly sponsored by Tom-Boi, a women's clothing brand which encourages women to embrace their inner tomboy and kick off the event with the first run of the day 'The Tom-Boi Challenge.'

Event partner Tom-Boi Clothing will be onsite at the event at the Mud Up Day market with other stall holders and food trucks.


Tickets are available at early bird rates from $50 for adults and $30 for children 13 and under.

Limited parking is available for this event so it's best to book early. Parking onsite is available for $10 pre-booked or $15 on the day (subject to availability.)
