Does your dog like to play in the mud?

Welcome to the Muddy Paws Challenge


The Swan Valley Mudfest is not just for the two-legged anymore, even your four-legged friends can get in on the fun!

That’s right, now you and your dog can dash through the dirt together! This year’s Mudfest gives man’s best friend a good time too with no chance of you or your pooch getting out clean through our 5km course (with a few dog-friendly alterations).

Individual registrations are $66 + Booking Fee each, or join as a team and enjoy the discount with a Family/Team pass at $200 + Booking Fee for four people.

Please note that all children aged 9 to 14 years must run the entire course with an accompanied registered guardian. All children from ages 15 to 18 must have a parent guardian waiver signed upon registration. All dogs must run with an 18+ guardian.
