Only “4 Sleeps” till the Run-a-Muck

by John Shiels

That’s right, the second Run-a-Muck of 2014 is on this Saturday and its shaping up to be another great event, we’ll be there getting destroyed with the best of them, cameras double wrapped in plastic just to be sure.

If you haven’t done a Run-a-Muck before¬† you really should give it a go. It’s a fun event with none of the Macho Bull**** that some similar events go in for.¬† With the option of a one or two lap course you are never that far from the start finish area (i.e hot food, cake, fruit and toilets) also making it easy for spectators to see what’s happening and cheer you one.

From the website:

“The Runamuck Challenge is a cross country event over a wet and mucky course with many man made and natural obstacles like bale “jumps”, net scrambles, super slides, tarzan swings, bridges, ditchs, streams, tyres & tunnels.

It is designed to test your mental and physical strength and will leave you with a big grin on your face smiley!

All obstacles are achievable but if you have any real difficulties then there are alternative routes available.”
