Teams are preparing to support charities in muddy obstacle run in Shepparton on March 10.JENNA BISHOP February 4, 2013 5:40pm
Chefs will be swapping their aprons and tall white hats for sneakers and gym gear as Team Sebastian prepares to tackle the Shepparton News Mad Cow Mud Run.
Seven staff members from Sebastian’s Restaurant will contest the 12
Sebastian Mangiameli said the team decided to enter the run to support Give Me Five for Kids and Goulburn Valley Health’s children’s ward.
‘‘It’s a good team-building exercise .
‘‘I think it’s going to be a great experience.’’
Sebastian said he was considering entering the next Tough Mudder run, depending on how the Mad Cow Mud Run went.
‘‘We’ll see how we all pull up — if we survive it,’’ he said.
Angela Mangiameli said the team decided to enter the fun run to support a good cause.
‘‘We can’t wait to get all muddy,’’ she said.
Past Tough Mudder competitor and chef Louisa Scrimizzi said she was expecting this fun run to be slightly easier than last month’s Tough Mudder.
‘‘We’ll stick together as a team, we’re not going to leave anyone behind,’’ she said.
Cam Mangiameli said the team planned to do some training before the event.
‘‘We’re not expecting it to be easy,’’ he said.
Participants will begin the course at Shepparton’s Princess Park and make their way along obstacle-filled pathways to SPC-Ardmona KidsTown, where they will complete more obstacles before returning to Princess Park. The course is expected to have 12 obstacles, including pipe crawls, an iced-water pond, a rope jungle, cable-drum crawl and, of course, lots of mud.
Money raised from the event will go towards local community groups and the Give Me Five for Kids campaign, which raises money for the Goulburn Valley Health children’s ward.
Individual registration for the Shepparton News Mad Cow Mud Run will cost $90 per person and teams of four people or more will be $85 per person.
Registration closes on February 24.
Characters from the much-loved video game Super Mario Bros will come to life as they participate in the Shepparton News Mad Cow Mud Run next month.
Team Super Mario Bros, also known as Matt Zeqir as Mario, Darren Burn as Luigi, Dillion Davey as Toad and Aaron Fry as Princess Peach, will be running the 12
The team will wear full character outfits before the race — including a dress for Aaron’s Princess Peach — although each will be running the actual race in singlets based on their character’s colour.
Aaron said the prospect of wearing a dress and a pink singlet didn’t faze him.
‘‘I’m the guy who always gets stuck with this sort of thing,’’ he said.
Darren said it was fairly easy to convince his teammates to join the mud run.
‘‘It seemed fun enough,’’ he said.
The Super Mario Bros team is not anticipating any trouble with obstacles on the course, which includes iced water ponds, mud pits and a cable drum climb.
Matt said growing up on a farm with electric fences had been great preparation in case there were any Tough Mudder-style electric obstacles on the course.
‘‘I think I’m electric shock-resistant,’’ he said.
The teammates, who all play football for Tallygaroopna, have a simple strategy to get them through.
‘‘Just get through it as fast as we can,’’ Aaron said.
Darren, who also volunteers as a children’s basketball coach with Aaron, said the mud run would be a good opportunity to raise money for local children through the charity Give Me Five For Kids.
For every sponsor the team receives, the boys will put sponsorship patches on the back of their singlets.
