What others say
Runamuck Challenge is a cross country obstacle "run" event over a mucky course designed to test your mental & physical strength and leave you with a big grin on your face.
Whether you are young or old, it is kid-like fun for adults - Join with friends and release your hidden child :-)
Fabulous Fun For Everyone
Push yourself as hard or as easy as you want - Choice of a 5.5km (1lap) or 11km (2 Laps)
This is a challenge not a race - so there will be no timing chip or official times. For those who would like to record their times, there will be a digital clock at both the start and finish!
Members of Teams can chose do 1 laps or 2 to suit themselves - Starting and finishing together is generally more fun but up to the teams themselves to decide
Fun for all
Each lap has 50+ obstacles and the fun you will have with others on the course is sure to leave you smiling for days afterwards
The obstacles include man made and natural obstacles like bale "jumps", net scramble & crawls, slides, balance planks, bogs, ditches, streams & a floating pontoon bridge across lake with lots of terrain variation.
These should be achievable for all but if anyone feels uncomfortable doing them then you can of course by pass them.
There are no barbed wire, fire or full immersion in water type obstacles on the course
Build memories that last
Lots of pictures are taken at every event so you can look back and relive your great memories at anytime
You can tag and share all photos with your friends
