MATAHUI MUD RUN – SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2015
Remember playing a game at school called “ Stuck in the Mud?” Well at Matahui School we are about to give you the opportunity to do this for real. Yes, this year we are set to launch the first ever Matahui School Mud Run on Saturday 7 November 2015 so set aside the date.
Matt Griffiths (with the support of our wonderful neighbours at the school, Terry Hobart and Peter and Hana Sherwin), has developed a course that will provide everyone participating with the chance to get muddy as they manoeuvre their way through a course that will provide both challenge and excitement.
The emphasis is less on making this a highly competitive event – though there will be prizes – rather, an occasion that caters for families and teams of enthusiastic “mud people” as a community event that will raise funds for charity and the school. Taking part in a mud run may be a new experience for you, but don’t worry. It is more of a “wade” than run and whilst you might feel it is a challenge,one of the benefits is that you get a cost effective beauty treatment that has no rival!
Additionally, on the day of the Mud Run we will be hosting approximately 100 motorcycle enthusiasts who will roll into school on their classic motorcycles for a lunch break. This “stopover” will certainly add an interesting dimension to the day, especially if anyone is keen on classic bikes.
All you need to do at this point is keep the date free, think about a “costume” for the day that will handle a mud bath and wait for additional information we will send out in the near future.
