The Miss Muddy obstacle course… “All about releasing your inner child!” says Jenny Douros.

UP to 1000 women and teens are expected to run the second annual Miss Muddy obstacle course event at Thoroughbred Park on Sunday, November 22.

Offering participants mud, colour, foam, climbing, crawling, slipping and sliding, Miss Muddy is a 5km, female-only, obstacle challenge event, encouraging women of all ages and fitness levels to have fun and get muddy.

“It has been great to see the rise in participation in obstacle events,” says Miss Muddy owner, Adam McDonald.

“Obstacle racing is a great way to get people motivated and excited about exercise. It is fun, social and adventurous and, with any luck, hopefully the rise in events being held nationally will help to address the alarming inactivity rates in Australia.”

Fitness expert, Jenna Douros is heading up a team from Gold’s Gym to take on the challenge. She encourages participants to let their hair down and have a laugh.

“Miss Muddy is all about releasing your inner child!” she says.

“The obstacles include walls, nets, ice baths, foam, and a huge slippery slide. It really is a lot of fun.”

Jenna says there is still time to prepare by implementing a fitness routine, which includes practising swinging, rolling and diving at playgrounds and Jenna encourages first-time obstacle runners to give every obstacle a try during the untimed course.
