Do you think you have what it takes to tackle The Mudder? This filthy and fun event has been running at Rangitikei Farmstay for the past five years and this year will be better than ever.
So what makes The Mudder unique? If you ask the entrants from previous years they will all tell you different things but one thing they all agree on is that this course is up there with the best. This is no flat, dawdle around some obstacle course on the edge of suburbia. The rugged hill country of the southern Rangitikei makes for plenty of lung burning and calf aching even before you throw in the obstacles. The course is designed to maximise the natural assets of the working sheep and beef farm it is hosted on. Many of the obstacles are based on natural springs that see guaranteed mud all year round. There is a dam with a floating island to crawl over, a 100 year old tree with roots straight out of a Hobbit scene and plenty of dams, bogs, and hills. Throw in some man made obstacles and you have a course that guarantees fun, laughter and a great day out.
