What can I expect?
If you think mud, hills, rough and rocky terrain, dirty waters, things to climb, things to squeeze through, things to crawl under, and other
things to slide down and… oh, did we mention mud? You’ll be laughing a lot and having a blast of a time!
Do I have to sign a waiver?
Every student and teacher who is competing in the race MUST have a suitably signed Race Waiver in order to participate. To ensure the
registration process runs smoothly, please nominate one teacher/responsible person to bring all waivers to the event, to be checked off the
participant list for your school with the registrations team. NO WAIVER, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS!
Can I get a refund if I decide I don't want to do it, or I can't make it?
Please make sure prior to registering that you can totally commit to participating!
There will be NO REFUNDS, but we can TRANSFER you to another event in the same year or 6 months from the event date.
What should I wear?
Enclosed shoes MUST be worn at all times – running shoes are ideal – spikes and bare feet are NOT PERMITTED.
This year's event is a VIKING theme, and we encourage you to dress up for battle!
As you will be going through a lot of mud, we recommend that you wear somewhat ‘disposable’ shoes and clothing, as they are
going to get trashed!
Is the course marked?
Yes, each obstacle is named, and your friendly volunteers will also be there to point you in the right direction.
Am I covered by insurance for participating in this event?
All Centaur Outdoor Events are covered by a Public Liability Insurance policy, specifically for each event.
We recommend that you have a Personal Accident Insurance policy in place prior to the event, as Public Liability Insurance does not cover
personal illness or accidents.
Are there any safety officers on the course?
Yes, sure are! We will have medical support staff all with first aid qualifications, plus a tonne of happy and enthusiastic volunteers!
What happens if a participant gets injured?
If you or another participant get seriously injured and require medical attention, please stay calm and wait until a Volunteer or Safety
Officer arrives to assist you.
Are there any prizes awarded?
There are several prizes and awards up for grabs this year. The first high school team across the line will get their name etched in history
on the Mini Muddies Perpetual trophy, which they will get to hold for a year, and then get their own trophy to keep! And for our primary
friends, you will also get your very own keepsake trophy.
Are there any showers after the event?
You bet! We wouldn’t let you go home looking like that! We will have a wash-down area waiting just for you.
Is there mobile phone reception?
There sure is! But we don’t recommend taking your phone on course unless you carry it in a Ziploc bag… again, all care will be
taken, but no responsibility will be accepted for lost personal items.
Will the event still go ahead if it’s raining?
Are you kidding? The wetter the better! Mud… glorious mud!
If the weather conditions get so bad that the participants, volunteers, spectators or anybody else involved on the day may be at risk, then the event will be cancelled. See event policy for details.
Are there an ATM machines?
