Come along to the Margaret River Mudfest and roll in it
Now you can go on a mud run, which should be so much fun! The Mud Run is back for everyone and back for spring holiday fun!

Bring along your friends, grab your children or perhaps even your furry friends. The mud run for everyone returns in 2019 bringing both the South West mud run and the Swan Valley mud run together, to give you the ultimate school holiday fun!

With all the rain we have recently had, this event is sure to be a very muddy one with lots of gooey mud.

The South West Mudfest will be taking place on a brand-new date, Sunday 29th September, at the Bootleg Brewery in Margaret River.

Mudfest is perfect for all fitness levels! It's the mud run for everyone, where it's all about fun, family, and most importantly, not taking yourself too seriously. You can have a laugh, even if it is at yourself - dress up, and perhaps even achieve something you did not think was possible. And as the name suggests, it gets very muddy! Do you remember playing in the mud as a child and being scolded, perhaps? Now you can do it deliberately and revel in it like never before!

Mud lovers can choose from the below entry options:

Mud Mayhem
For those who haven't competed in a mud run before, this course is approximately 5km. It has heaps of about 30 of your favourite obstacles that have been on over the years.

There are also some thrilling new obstacles, all of which are suited to any fitness level.

Good times is the name of the game so have some fun, enjoy some laughs along the way and take it at your own pace.

Muddy Paws Challenge: No one in your party will be left behind when this very popular Muddy Paws Challenge starts. It was first launched as an Australian first in 2016 and is an opportunity for two and four-legged competitors alike to dash through the dirt and have some fun. So remember, bring your dog as dogs also love to roll and play in the mud! This one will be on in the afternoon, and organisers guarantee that no pooch will come out clean after tackling this specially designed dog-friendly approx. 5km course!

Children's Course: this will be returning in 2019 and it is a 1-2km course just for children. It is the perfect way to introduce the little ones to the messy delights of Mudfest! The courses are recommended for ages 9 years, and the South West Mudfest Kids Course has been specifically designed for ages 5 years.

Event Manager Jack Rogers said that with more mud than ever before, this year's Mudfest events present the perfect excuse to get down and dirty. He went on to say "The feedback we get from participants each year is just how much fun they have had,". It does not matter whether you're entering on your own as a single or as a family or a group of friends, Mudfest really is a great day out for everyone.

The good part about this Mudfest is that you do not need to be tough or you do not have to train for an event like this one. You are guaranteed when you finish, you'll have a massive sense of accomplishment. There will also be prizes for the best-dressed teams for the day, so get in the spirit of the event and dress in some fancy dress to be in the running for a prize!

Both Mudfest events will feature DJ music, a before and after muddy photo booth, and of course a clean shower and doggy rinse-off station! There will also be heaps of tasty food and drinks to buy in the Event Villages near the Finish Line. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own picnic rug and enjoy some Mudfest relaxation in the sun after the event. You will also be able to buy a beer and burger lunch from Bootleg Brewery in between the two races.
