Course Description:

This is a non-timed adventure course for anyone who has wanted to give obstacle racing a try in a low pressure environment.
The course is 4.5 km with 40 obstacles. Moderately difficult.
Children 8-14 years of age will run their own dedicated heat with proceeds going to charity.
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.
Mud Up Day will include not just the run, but plenty of outdoor space to picnic, enjoy an outdoor market, food trucks and more.

Aid Stations:

Medical and first aid facilities will be available on site.
Food vendors will also be onsite.

Spectators:

Spectators are free entry and can enjoy an open-air market, family-friendly entertainment, picnic area and food vendors while they wait!

Parking:

Pre-paid parking is $10 or $15 on the day, based on availability.
Parking is limited so pre-booking is strongly encouraged on the ticketing website.
Carpooling is always encouraged.
The course is an easy walk from the car parking area.

Other:

It’s a great day out where friends and families can enjoy the course in a non-competitive, non-timed environment. Unless you’re naturally competitive with your fellow racers, then it’s game on!
It’s all for fun, take your time and enjoy the experience.
Obstacles in the course are designed to be moderately challenging but not impossible. We can’t reveal exactly what’s on the course because it’ll ruin the fun, but you’ll get at least 40 chances to conquer a range of challenges.
If you can walk and climb, you’re fit enough. The course has been approved for children so don’t be shy!
Unless you are a registered adult accompanying a child in one of the TLC Kids runs, then sadly, you cannot walk on course. All spectators must wish their racers well and meet them at the finish line for muddy celebration hugs and high fives!
There is an insurance fee that is required for all racers. This accounts for your contribution towards the cost associated with the insurance procured by the venue as well as the event. While the course is very safe, this insurance is required by law. Children 8-13 will have their own dedicated run. If your child is a bit nervous or shy about having a go of the course, one adult may accompany a child to observe them only (adults cannot participate in the children’s obstacles- just watch from the sidelines.) The course will have several course marshalls along the way to help racers through and provide plenty of encouragement (especially for the kids!)
Please arrive at least one hour prior to your booked run time to ensure you’re ready to run. If you’re a racer, take your ticket to registration to collect your wristband and sign your race wavier. No wristband/waiver= no run.
If you miss your allocated time, return to registration to see if you can be allocated into a later run time. Please note we cannot guarantee another race time will be available and you may (i.e. there’s a good chance you will) miss out altogether without refund. So please ensure you do your very best to arrive on your allocated time.
Bring a picnic blanket to relax on the day before or after your race. Your ticket to race and a sense of adventure. Some clean (dry) clothes and a towel for after your race. And damp cleansing towels like baby wipes, etc. are worth their weight in gold for cleaning up post race and don’t forget the sunscreen too!
Only service animals are allowed on the event area. All other animals are NOT allowed.
We are unable to take responsibility for personal items/bags this year. Please leave valuable items with a friend or at home while you run the course.
There are very limited shower facilities (i.e. outdoor shower hoses) onsite. Very limited. Bring a change of clean clothes and a plastic bag for your muddy ones. Clever racers also remember beach towels to change ala beach carpark style and to cover their car seats on the way home (don’t say we didn’t warn you!)
Volunteers get all of our appreciation and a free ticket to run in a dedicated volunteers heat. Email us for more info at [email protected] with the subject line I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE.

Team:

Welcome to race as teams, just sign up in the same heat together - no official teams.
