THE annual Mini Mudda returned on the weekend, with the Wonthaggi Primary School creating an adventurous course featuring tough obstacles.
And organisers say the early Saturday morning rain made the track just a little bit better for the kids.
The skies had cleared by the time the race kicked off at 10am, with hundreds of kids climbing over hay bales, and through tunnels and mud.
To pull off such an event, it’s a community effort by the school community – including teachers, parents and of course, input from the students.
One of the organisers, Jesse Sago, said it was fantastic to see the smiles on kids’ faces.
“Everyone who’s helped organise this annual Mini Mudda has just gone above and beyond. Just to name a few, Caroline Moore and Andrea Phillips have been incredible in helping organise this,” Jesse said.
“It’s an 800m track and some kids have gone through it four or five times,” he said on Saturday.
“They just love it so much, it’s great. We also set up parts of the course so it would spell out WPS, standing for Wonthaggi Primary School.”
