Mayo Mud Run
This run is one of the first of its kind in the West of Ireland and is, after only two years in existence, one of the top three sporting events in Mayo. One thousand participants have now completed a course that is a fun activity and unlike your average cross-country run, we have a course that will challenge everyones grit and determination. In the last few years the activity has really gained ground and is enjoyed by young and old, fit and not-so-fit. As the run is only as competitive as the runner wants it to be, participants have to sprint, climb, crawl and generally muck their way to the finish line. It can also be a fantastic team-building event with lots of opportunities designed to improve team functioning and effectiveness. GAA teams, fitness clubs, Transition Year groups and social clubs enjoy the team aspect of the run without feeling intimidated by a course which is too challenging. So if you think mud running is not for you, think again! The run is organised through Moygownagh GAA who host the event as a fund-raiser for the local Community Centre This provides community services for the whole parish of Moygownagh and its hinterlands. Local people volunteer to help with the administration of the Mud Run and help out as marshals, supervisors and first-aiders on site and provide refreshments on completion for all competitors in the Community Centre.
