THE Mud Run is organised by a group of 10 friends, headed by event president Joal Butcher. Joal was full of praise for the way the town of East Gresford has got behind the event. “The town is very good to us, so we like to support the local community,” he said. “As we’re not-for-profit, in 2019 we gave a big donation to the lawn bowls club, and it actually saved the club.”

This year’s smaller entry list helped the event get the tick of COVID compliance. “The police came through and they were excellent. We ran by the book and had a fully ticketed event with no general public, so they were really happy,” Joal said. “We knew everyone there and had only one entry point. It was much easier to manage, so we’ll be running it like this from now on.”
