JOIN IN THE FUN AT THE MALDON MUD RACE ON
SUNDAY MAY 5 at 3pm
THE MALDON MUD RACE IS NEARLY HERE!!
Competitors and press from all over the world are warming up to join in the fun at The 2013 Maldon Mud Race at Promenade Park on Bank Holiday Sunday 5th May. Footballing legend, Martin Peters will officially launch the event plus visitors and press from all over Europe, including Italy and Germany.
The event features 300 fund-raising entrants, many of whom will be raising money for local Essex charities.
Vice-Chairman of The Maldon Mud Race, Brian Farrington, said “The day involves nearly 12 months of pre-planning but we always have a few surprises. As the event grows we are expanding what we have on offer including our Duck Race, Fancy Dress Competition for competitors and stalls with snacks and promotional gifts.”
“One of our major sponsors this year is Chelmsford-based Mack Mazda and Mitsubishi plus representatives from some of the charities who are beneficiaries so that spectators can find out more about how they benefit from the day’s fun.”
He continued “So far, the weather looks much kinder than last year but we are well-prepared with alternative courses etc, should the worst happen and hoping for our largest crowd ever so we can raise even larger sums for charities such Farleigh Hospice, Little Haven Children’s Hospice and Brainwave amongst many other smaller local recipients – last year saw in excess of £46,000 being distributed.”
Entry into the event is by donation and the team has invested in 2 huge screens to capture every moment plus there are stalls and entertainment during the day – with all the fun kicking off from 12 noon with Duck Race at 2pm and the main event around 3pm.”
