What is the Tauranga Boys College Mud Challenge?
The Tauranga Boys College Mud Challenge is a fundraising event to raise money for the Tauranga Boys' College Rugby Programme. All money will go directly towards reducing the cost to our families and to improving the Rugby Programme as a whole to ensure a positive experience for all involved.
A current barrier to participation in a physical activity is the financial cost to families, and rugby in particular deals with families from all socio-economic backgrounds due to the nature of our sport. A number of our families struggle to meet the financial demands of being involved and simply 'drop out'. It is also worth considering that many of our families have more than one son involved and therefore the cost is doubled or even tripled for some.
Tauranga Boys' College Rugby endeavours to mitigate this by creating a 'Hardship fund' where costs can be subsidised or paid in full for those students who display the traits of a 'good man' both on and off the field. Money should not be a reason for the boys (and families) to miss out on the opportunities that the Tauranga Boys' College Rugby Programme has to offer.
Money raised from this event will go directly into this Hardship fund

TEAM of three
You can also register at the main office of Tauranga Boys' College, 664 Cameron Road.
Navigate your way through the course of muddy obstacles on the beautiful estuary and mud flats at picturesque Pahoia Domain.
You will get wet, dirty, and covered in mud so a positive attitude is essential.
To enter the full 6km course participants must be 16 years of age or older because it involves a river crossing and extreme mud in the boggy snake obstacle.
The 3km 'kids loop' makes up the 2nd half of the full course and has lots of obstacles and muddy challenges for the under 16 year olds (Parents and older siblings can also enter the 'kids loop'). This is a perfect activity for the more adventurous of families and also a fantastic team building experience for your group of friends or colleagues.
