Buck­ing good ob­sta­cle course

The Riverine Herald - - WHAT’S ON - By Stephanie Horton

IF YOU are look­ing for as much fun as a phys­i­cal chal­lenge can be — and don’t mind get­ting dirty along the way — then the Brumby Run is for you.

The six, eight or 12 kilo­me­tre event is at Echuca’s Billabong Ranch on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4.

The 30-plus ob­sta­cles are de­signed to test those in­volved, both men­tally and phys­i­cally.

It doesn’t mat­ter if you have to run, walk or scram­ble your way around the course, as long as you make it over the fin­ish line in the end.

Peo­ple can nom­i­nate for any of the three events and can change course mid-race.

The first wave kicks off at 11am and par­tic­i­pants must be 13 years or older by Novem­ber 4.

Or­gan­iser Kerry Aquisto said she was ex­pect­ing more than 350 peo­ple to take part in the event, which is af­fil­i­ated with the Ob­sta­cle Course Racing League of Vic­to­ria.

‘‘The Brumby Run is gain­ing in pop­u­lar­ity each year and it is a fan­tas­tic fun day,’’ Kerry said.

Reg­is­tra­tion is $95 sub­ject to avail­abil­ity.

It in­cludes a straw cow­boy hat, medal­lion, stubby holder and a can of beer or soft drink, along with a sausage siz­zle.

Team en­tries are a chance to win a lucky group prize and the largest group en­try also re­ceives a prize.

A bar will op­er­ate all week­end and there is no BYO al­co­hol.

En­ter­tain­ment in­cludes mu­sic and drinks around the camp­fire Satur­day night.

Rooms are avail­able, from dou­ble through to team rooms of 12, from $30 per per­son at the Ranch but you must bring your own bed­ding.

A $10 park­ing fee ap­plies with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the lo­cal CFA.
