Muddy Paws Challenge South West Mudfest - July 7

This year's South West Mudfest promises to be Muddy Good Fun for everyone including your pooches! It’s time for the whole family to get dirty these school holidays as the South West Mudfest returns for another epic year of mud, mess and mad good times on July 7.

The South West Mudfest has undergone some awesome changes for 2018. While the day is still all about fun, family, not taking yourself too seriously and having a laugh with friends, this year’s course has been tweaked to ensure an even better time is had by all – whether you have two legs or four! 

Following in the paw-prints of Australia's first ever mud race for pooches at sister event the Swan Valley Mudfest in 2016, the Muddy Paws Challenge has wagged its way into the South West.

This is an awesome canine-friendly modified version of the 5km Mud Mayhem Course and
organisers have worked closely with charity partner, the RSPCA WA, to ensure a course that is safe, fun and definitely doggy do-able. 
Your pooch will have an epic time dashing through the dirt, tackling the paw-some obstacles, making a muddy mess and a wonderful wash-down at the very end, all the while raising funds for an exceptional cause. 

The Muddy Paws Challenge is suitable for all pups and dog lovers of all ages from 9 years and up. 

The Mud Mayhem course is a super friendly 5km and will once again be set in the paddocks surrounding long-time favourite venue, Bootleg Brewery. Each of the course’s 34 obstacles, featuring a mix of long-time favourites and some brand new surprises, have been designed to give participants a challenge, but be achievable and fun at the same time. 

You don’t need to be a fitness fanatic to complete any of the obstacles and you can even choose to skip any obstacles you wish. If 5km just isn’t enough muddy fun or you want to have another crack at the mud-tastic obstacles, you can have another go with the Dirty Double. Anyone up for a second round receives a 50% discount off their second registration

Registrations have gone down in price this year with a portion of every registration going towards supporting the RSPCA WA
And in even better news, if you register a group of 4 or more people in one transaction you get a further 20% discount! 

The South West Mudfest supports the local community and will once again be raising funds for the local Margaret River sporting clubs. The South West Mudfest acknowledges the support of its partners Bootleg Brewery, the City of Busselton and the RSPCA WA
