The Mudder, an obstacle course on water-sodden farmland, took place near Marton on Saturday with hundreds turning out.
The course, set up on organiser Andrew Stewart’s sheep and beef farm, 12 kilometres north of the Rangitīkei town, had 3km, 5km and 8km course options.
This year, about 450 people took part in the event.
Stewart said a big motivator was people’s reactions. “Seeing the reactions of people on the course and after, the smiles and laughter and enjoyment, that’s the main motivator.”
