A record 2033 participants crawled, climbed and clambered their way through the mud at Harbour Sport’s 5th annual Mud Monster Mud Rush last weekend on Massey University’s Auckland campus.
The course had 20 obstacles including tunnels, crawls, a climbing wall, tyre mountains and a creek run. There was a lot of excitement surrounding this year’s new obstacles, including a tightrope, monkey bars and crab crawl, but the biggest highlight this year was the three different mud and water slides including the 20 metre finale mud slide which ended with a huge splash.
Harbour Sport event manager Jess Raymond says it was so great to see so many families. “It was a great opportunity for parents and children to throw the rules out the window and get as muddy as possible while having fun and being active. The smiles and grins from participants were electric, and it’s safe to say a good time was had by all, despite the challenging weather conditions.”
