South West Mudfest set to be muddier and dirtier than ever

Getting down and dirty never felt so good with this year’s South West Mudfest in Margaret River guaranteed to be muddier than ever.

Bootleg Brewery will play host to the fourth annual South West Mudfest on Saturday, July 1 with not two but three muddy courses packed full of challenging obstacles and good times.

This years race will see the launch of a new kids course full of fun and super muddy obstacles.

There is a course for everyone, with the 12 kilometer Dirty Dozen race suited for those who like it a little bit tough and crave a physical challenge, whilst the 5 km Mud Mayhem course in the afternoon is for those who just want a few laughs and muddy times with their friends.

Participants should prepare for a fun, challenging and muddy experience with obstacles such as beer kegs, hay bales, tractor tyres, water slides, flour bombing and more.

There’s no chance of getting out clean with our “true” mud run experience, with the South West’s winter weather expected to provide a paddock full of puddles and a course full of oozy clay.

Mudfest Event Director, Jason Dover said the best thing about the South West Mudfest is that it can do done by anyone.

“Our participants tell us that what they love the most about our event is that it’s the muddiest they’ve seen and it’s suitable for everyone,” Mr Dover said. 

“We are so lucky to be able to host the event at the awesome Bootleg Brewery in Margaret River, the surrounding paddocks are naturally muddy and the region sees heaps of rain in winter which creates paddocks of muddy perfection.”

“The Margaret River Hawks Cricket Club have been awesome to work with and have put a heap of effort into building the event over the past few years. Last year we had a number of other clubs also help with the event,” said Mr Dover.

Enticement awaits at the finish line for every competitor in the form of a famed meaty hamburger and chilled craft beer from Bootleg Brewery, or a sausage sizzle and a water/soft drink for the kids course.

Not to mention the steaming hot shower. 

The South West Mudfest would like to thank its partners the City of Busselton and Bootleg Brewery for their support.

Participants should bring a gold coin donation for the valuables drop with all funds raised going directly to local sporting club and event partner, The Margaret River Hawks Cricket Club.
