The Port Macquarie Sand Mudder is a 4km obstacle course along the picturesque beachfront of Port Macquarie.
There are 21 obstacles along the way. It is not a timed event. It is all about the fun and the exercise. Individuals and teams set off in prescribed 'waves'. You can chose the time of the wave you wish to participate in.
The course can be run by individuals and teams and is preceded by a separate Corporate Challenge event. This challenge requires team members to complete the course while also working as a team to undertake additional tasks along the way, with a cup awarded to the team which completes the course in the shortest time.
This year's event promises to be even more fun than last year so get your team together and come join in the fun, while also supporting some very valuable local services. Remember all the money raised from this event stays in Port Macquarie!
