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 2016, we look forward to getting down and dirty with you again on Sunday 8th October 2017!

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!

We also have kids and those bored teens covered – the age limit for this course is 9+ years on the day. *Waves for the 5km Course begin at 9:00AM and run every 10 minutes until 12:00PM.

So grab your friends, and grab your family, get dressed up and have a muddy good time at the Swan Valley Mudfest!

Please note that all children aged 9 to 14 years must run the entire course with an accompanied registered guardian. All children from ages 15 to 18 must have a parent guardian waiver signed upon registration.

Time: 9:00am-12:00pm.

Expected time to finish: 0.5 - 1 hour

Length: 5km

Fitness Level: All

Age: 9+


We know our four-legged pooches sometimes think they’re human too, so we have been working closely with the RSPCA to ensure no family member is left behind. Now you and your fury 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! There’s no chance of you or your pooch getting out clean through our 5km course (with a few dog friendly alterations).

We did say the Swan Valley Mudfest was the mud run for everyone!

Please note that all children aged 9 to 14 years must run the entire course with an accompanied registered guardian. All children from ages 15 to 18 must have a parent guardian waiver signed upon registration.

Better yet, $10 per registration will go straight to the RSPCA WA, so you can rest knowing you are helping hundreds of animals in need. If you’d like to make a much appreciated donation to the RSPCA WA, please head to their website here. Thank you!

At the Swan Valley Mudfest we have heaps of fantastic prizes to be won!

Fastest Mud Runner

Think you can slide and climb through that mud fast enough? We will be awarding the FASTEST across the line in the 9am wave with an awesome prize! So make sure you put on your fastest kicks to ensure you have the chance to win! As this event isn’t timed, we will just be awarding the Fastest Male and Fastest Female across the line for the 9:00am Wave!

We are also awarding the BEST DRESSED for the day! So get in the spirit of the event and pull on some fancy dress to be in the running for a prize! There is no dress up too crazy!


We want to make sure everyone has a fun and safe time at the Swan Valley Mudfest.

Mud and obstacle racing can be a dangerous sport, so we ask you to please recognise this and note that you are responsible for your own health insurance.

To help ensure your safety, we will be joined by an Event First Aid Team that will include an ambulance and other trained personnel who are all there to look after any troubles on the day.

In addition to all of the safety precautions we have in place, we ask you to please remember to exercise respect to other participants at all times.

Before entry and competing it is compulsory for everyone to carefully read the Event Policy, Event Rules and Terms and Conditions.


We don’t want to give too much away, but the Swan Valley Mudfest will have you climbing, crawling and wading through mud! Lots and lots of mud! We will have loads of climbing obstacles to test your skills, and heaps of inflatables too.

There will be obstacles of varying difficulties and sizes, made all the more fun by a good coat of glorious mud.

Time Waves

To avoid over-crowding on the course and to provide everyone with the best experience, participants will be divided into staggered starting waves.

When registering you will be asked to select your preferred start wave time. Waves are allocated on a first in basis.
