- A dry change of clothing and footwear
- Shower items, such as a towel and toiletries etc.
- A cap or hat could be a good idea
How To Register

- Water Stations
- First Aid Personnel
- Change tents
- Outdoor wash off area
- More obstacles than you can handle!
- A top day out
Please aim to arrive by no later than 10am. This will allow enough time for your designated team coordinator to complete the registrations process with event organisers, and for competitors to get warmed up with plenty of time to spare!
Parking is FREE. Volunteers will direct all vehicles and buses to the parking area. Vehicles leaving the venue must not exceed 6km as there may be people still competing... be patient please!
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!
There will be a Sausage Sizzle after the run for all the students and teachers. $2 per sausage with drinks being available for purchase from the cellar door. It is always a good idea to bring along your own snacks and supplies, though.
Please bring a water bottle for when you are on course. Although there will be water stations, do not solely rely on these.
There will be an unsupervised tent for students to leave their bags, however, we recommend that students leave their valuables at school or at home.
We will also have an envelope drop area for teachers to leave their valuables e.g Drivers Licence and car keys, in an envelope, and provide a password to enable you to collect it at the end of the day. All care will be taken, but no responsibility will be accepted for lost personal items.
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 your entry to another student.
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 zip lok 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?
Test the NEW 6km course for 2018, featuring 30+ challenging obstacles, mud pits and action stations to push you to your limits! We've set your course amidst the eucalypt forest at Bago Vineyards, which opens out to rolling hills and acres of grape vines. Both the location and course will literally take your breath away!
You will wriggle, climb, crawl, get wet and run over, and of course muddy, amongst some of the best challenges you’ve ever tackled, including some ALL NEW obstacles (Viking themed of course!!). WARNING!! The dam crossing is back!
