There will plenty of interest surrounding Shepparton’s Mad Cow Run this Sunday, with a host of current and former Blighty locals taking part.
Blighty’s Kim and Brad Sneddon, Jarrod Andrews, Finley’s Charlie and Sharyn White, Shepparton’s Amy Kelly and former Blighty locals Jessie and Mick Ibbot have named themselves the ‘Redeye Mud Runners’ after their ties to the Blighty Football Netball Club.
The Mad Cow Run, which is similar to a Tough Mudder-style obstacle course, will raise funds to support the Goulburn Valley Health children’s ward and local community groups.
The run will be on a full 12km course.
‘‘My husband and I wanted to do Tough Mudder but thought it was probably a bit above our fitness level,’’ Blighty netballer Kim Sneddon said.
‘‘I saw the Mad Cow Run online and it’s only 12km and looks pretty good. Everyone was really keen to do it and it will be a good bit of fitness heading into the footy and netball seasons.’’
Sneddon said everyone has been doing some basic running and weight training but the first time the team will all be together is ‘‘on the day’’.
The ‘Redeye Mud Runners’ and other participants will begin the course at Shepparton’s Princess Park and make their way along obstacle-filled pathways to KidsTown, where they will complete more obstacles before returning to Princess Park.
The course boasts 16 obstacles, including pipe crawls, an iced-water pond, a rope jungle, cable-drum crawl, a tomato pit, electric fences and lots of mud.
The event’s name is derived from Shepparton’s iconic cows.
