April 1st is not a date to be fooled with in Moygownagh as the Mayo Mud Run is back and promises to be muddier than ever!
Mayo Mud Run is a cross-country adventure race. The aim is to provide a well organised, friendly, muddy and FUN event, set in a beautiful location.
The Mayo Mud Run course is an 8km route of energy-sapping, good clean DIRTY fun. You’ll run, walk, jump, crawl over and through the most natural terrain, with a surprise around every corner. Mud is only ever a footstep away as you navigate the forest trails, scale the obstacles and go muckin’ crazy!
The raw Mayo countryside – will get under your skin – literally! – but the beauty of the landscape won’t go unnoticed.
Participants vary each year from the fiercely competitive through to fun runners/walkers, charity runners/walkers, and people who have never done anything like this in their lives and want to challenge themselves in the most fun way possible. And there will always be a smiling face and a helping hand from a local volunteer to get you through those tight spots.
The video below is a taste of what you might expect on the Mud Run but be prepared for some surprises from the organisers!
Mayo Mud Run is a community fundraising event, with all proceeds going to the upkeep of the local community centre which hosts the event. The venue serves soup, sandwiches and an abundance of delicious home-baked treats in the centre after the big race! The Moygownagh community rallies together for this big day, and volunteer their time to organise every aspect of this very successful fundraising event.
Spectators are very welcome on the day at the Start/Finish line at the community centre to join in the fun.
