Mud run fun

This enthusiastic group of young ladies thoroughly enjoyed the annual winter Mud Run held on a Maclaurin Road farm yesterday. Around 400 people took part in the Gisborne Harrier Club fundraiser. The two-kilometre course featured a super slide, which proved hugely popular. Pictures by Liam Clayton
ANDALE, ANDALE . . . YEEHAAA!: A group of Speedy Gonzales Mexicans take on the super slide in yesterday’s Mud Run.

Gisborne Harrier Club’s annual winter mud run once again put heaps of smiles on muddy dials.

The event, a fundraiser for the club, attracted hundreds of children and adults, much to the delight of club president Quentin Harvey.

“It was excellent, a huge success. There was lovely weather, lots of smiles on everyone’s faces. We had about 400 people. That was right on the maximum numbers of registrations we put in place. It was a perfect amount of people and there were heaps of muddy faces.”

He thanked “all the sponsors” and farmer Matt Maclaurin for allowing the use of his Hexton farm for the event. Participants, many in fancy dress, took on a two-kilometre course highlighted by the 20-metre-long Power Farming super slide.

“It was a very cool day,” said Quentin.
