Welcome to the most bizarre and muckiest event in the Eastern Cape. Created for the thrill-seekers, those Urban Athletes who just want to say 'What the Muck!'.

A little teaser of what you may expect
"COME AS YOU ARE AND GET AS DIRTY AS YOU LIKE"
The ultimate un-timed fun run where all you wacky-racers get the chance to bring out the kid in you again. Come run, crawl, slide and roll around in the dirt.
THE MUCK RUN, presented by Edge Financial Group promises to be the sort of event that doesn't require months of disciplined training - but the appeal will be in the camaraderie and the sense of accomplishment that comes only from a hard mucky effort with friends. The physical challenge of the Muck Run is mixed with the Mardi Gras-style joviality.
We are striving to create a fun course over rugged bush terrain, featuring water hazards, steep inclines, and several military-style obstacles testing one's toughness, stamina, strength, fitness, mental grit, teamwork and camaraderie.
Whether you're a fanatical runner or a self-confessed couch potato, the Muck Run is definitely for everyone. After the event we encourage all participants to donate their shoes (and race clothes) to our nominated charity in support of those that are less fortunate than ourselves.
Being something that ANYONE can take part in, obstacle racing has become very popular. All you need is a pair of old running shoes and a great sense for adventure.
Check out the info page for all the dirt.
MUCKING FOR CHARITY
The Muck Run supports local charity by encouraging all participants to donate unwanted clothing items. BRING ALONG YOUR OLD CLOTHES on race day - anything goes, so please raid that cupboard and haul out anything you haven't worn this year and donate to a worthy cause.
Live entertainment on the weekend will be Jon Yawn Allen from The Brothers.
Jon will perform before and after the event from the Coca Cola Stage.
