Join us in Carrigtwohil for Mud Quest, the most FUN you´ll ever have in a state of filthy exhaustion.
What is it? A 6km off-road adventure run between Barryscourt Castle and Slatty Bridge in Carrigtwohill, just twenty minutes from Cork City and right alongside Fota Island. Run by the community to benefit the community.
Be prepared for up to 20 natural and man-made obstacles from scrambling nets to bridges, tunnels and old walls. And oceans of mud! You don´t have to be quick or strong to take part but you mustbe prepared to challenge yourself and have a laugh. Leave your pride at the start line and pick it up when you finish.
This event is open to teams of four or more and individuals as young as 16 (under 18s, though, must have their entry forms counter-signed by a parent or guardian). There are also extra benefits for groups of 20 or more. For companies or clubs this is a perfect event for a team-bonding session or simply a fun day out that people of all fitness levels can enjoy.

Gym instructors from our sponsors NRG Xpress will be on hand to put all Questers through a suitable warm-up. After that? It´s just you and the course and the friends you think you have....!!! On average the course will probably take about 60 minutes to complete but there is no time limit. A drink, a snack and a warm-water wash down will be available at the finish line - the wash first! Après Mud Quest -Back at the Community Hall our sponsor Ballyseedy Home and Gardens will host a BBQ for all Questers and the carnival atmosphere will continue long after the mud has been washed away including some music and a display of event photos. Please join us for a very special event and a day out like you´ve never had before.
