Adelaide, Bernie Lewis MS Mud Run is back in 2013 and... getting dirty never felt so good!

The Bernie Lewis MS Mud Run is back in 2013 and it promises to be another muddy terrific day for the whole family. Returning to Urrbrae Agricultural High School on December 1st 2013, mud runners are asked to navigate a unique mud-filled obstacle course.

Feedback from the 2012 event has seen additional categories added to the event. Mud runners can now compete in an electronically timed elite 5.6km race, a fun and challenging 4km mud run, a 4km mini mudders race for children aged 8-15 and a 4km mud pack family race, for adults and children to race together. 

Event Coordinator Megan Down says the mud runners from last year's event wanted even more mud.

"We've listened to the feedback, and this year will see double the amount of muddy obstacles, so there is no chance getting out of it clean! It is such a great day out for
the whole family," she said.

For those who prefer good clean fun, there will be plenty to keep spectators entertained with rides, school markets, food vans and entertainment. Volunteer positions are also available for those wanting to lend a hand. 

Mud runners are encouraged to fundraise for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) in South Australia and Northern Territory. Individuals or teams can register online at for early bird rates until August 31st.

The MS Society of SA & NT supports approximately 2,000 people living with MS in South Australia and Northern Territory who rely on the Society for essential services. CEO, Graeme Warnock, says it is great to see so many people get behind the event.  

"The community involvement in this event is terrific. It's great
to see so many people, from participants, event sponsors, volunteers to MS
Society staff helping us make a difference in the lives of people affected by
MS," he said.
