Get down and dirty with ultimate bog challenge

A sneak peek at the testing course!

Today’s heavy rain means there will be no shortage of muck to contend with for the brave souls who take on the Dunderry GAA Muddy Muckers Ultimate Bog Challenge at Tullaghanstown bog tomorrow.
It promises to be the best adventure run of the year, and will be run over 5k or 10k - the entrant decides. The start time is 11am.
Participants can test their endurance as they run, walk, jog or crawl through the testing terrain, jump over bog holes or into them, wade though streams, climb turf mountains, tyre climbs, bale jumps, bog cliffs or creep through Cregan’s Creek and run through a forest trail to complete a truly rejuvenating experience on a course that has taken just 2,000 years to prepare.
The run is for all grades. When it’s all over, those taking part can get hosed down by the Dunderry Fair team and meet up in the pit area for free hot food, music, heat and craic in the great outdoors.
The main sponsors of the event are DBASS Chartered Accountants, based in Ashbourne. Book online at www.eventmaster.ie. See Muddy Muckers Ultimate Bog Challenge on Facebook and Twitter for more details.
