Event Info

The Swan Valley Mudfest is the mud run for everyone… even your four-legged friends!

It’s the craziest, funniest and muddiest obstacle race in Perth! We are all about fun, family, not taking yourself seriously, having a laugh, getting fit, getting muddy and achieving things you didn’t think were possible!

After a muddy good time in 2018, we look forward to getting down and dirty with you in 2019 – stay tuned, date to be released in the new year!

But be prepared, we will have you climbing, crawling and wading through mud. You will get wet and you will get muddy! We have a jam-packed day full of mud, obstacles and fun planned for you!


Our 5km long obstacle course includes over 25+ obstacles and an abundance of real mud! Enjoyment is the name of the game, so our course is designed to accommodate all fitness levels and we do not enforce a time limit so you can take as long as you’d like!

Waves for the Run A Muck Course begin at 8:30AM and run every 10 minutes until 11:00AM.

So grab your friends, and grab your family, get dressed up and have a muddy good time at the Swan Valley Mudfest! Early Bird registrations are $55 + Booking Fee each, or enjoy a group discount if you register four or more people in one transaction.

This course is for all ages (we strongly recommend 9+ years for children) – we understand no one knows your child better than you, so we ask parents to please use their better judgement when registering their child and working out whether your child is ready for their first muddy obstacle race! Please note that all children 14 years and under must run the entire course with an accompanied registered guardian and all children from ages 15 to 18 must have a parent guardian waiver signed upon registration. Event management reserves the right to deny access onto the course, without a refund, if they believe a registered child is not old or fit enough to safely participate on this course. This is a dog-free mud run – If you’d like to run with you dog please register for the Muddy Paws Challenge in the afternoon.



Time: 8:30am - 11:00am

Expected time to finish: 1.5+ hours

Length: Approximately 5km

Fitness Level: All

Age: We recommend 9+ years




We know our four-legged pooches sometimes think they’re human too, so we have been working closely with the RSPCA WA to ensure no family member is left behind. Now you and your furry friend can be one of the first in Australia to take part in the Muddy Paws Challenge. That’s right, now you and your dog can dash through the dirt together – we are really excited to give man’s best friend a good time too! Taking place in the afternoon, there’s no chance of you or your pooch getting out clean through our specially designed dog friendly course! Please note, each registration covers the cost for one human and their accompanying dog to participate in the time wave of their choice.

Waves for the Muddy Paws Challenge begin at 11:30AM and run every 10 minutes until 2:00PM. Early Bird registrations are $55 + Booking Fee each, or enjoy a group discount if you register four or more people in one transaction.

Please note, not every participant needs to have a dog in the Muddy Paws Challenge time waves. You can have a couple, family or group of friends run with one dog, or a few! Our only “rule” is that each individual person cannot have more than one dog run with them. Don’t have a dog at all but can’t participate in the morning? That’s fine, you can still register for the Muddy Paws Challenge and participate without a dog, so long as you are happy to be on course with lots of dogs!
