The Mud Run

Sunrise Rotary Roughneck is a mud run with 25 obstacles within the amazing and varied terrain of the Southern Cross Equestrian Centre outside of Brantford in Burford, Ontario. You will get wet and dirty. But you will have fun in spades while helping raise money for the Alzheimer Society and other Rotary Sunrise sponsored charities.

Who Can Run

Anyone 14 or older looking for a fun day of fitness. The Sunrise Rotary Roughneck Mud Run is a fun yet challenging 25 obstacle course for participants of all ability levels. The main goal is to get out, get muddy and do what we call “Roughnecking”!

Who We Are

The Sunrise Rotary Club of Brantford will use most of the funds raised from the Roughneck Mud Run to support the Alzheimer Society, funding research and helping families cope with this disease.
