Mud Trial organizers say bring on the rain

Rain means mud, and in this case more mud means more fun at the second annual Unbridled Mud Trials at Island 22.

Muddy mayhem returns to Chilliwack this weekend with the second annual Unbridled Mud Trials at Island 22.

Race day is Saturday with the first competitors hitting the course at 10 a.m.

This year’s race includes separate competitive waves along with a brand new kids course for youths ages 6-11.

The adult course covers five kilometres of mostly flat and very muddy terrain, dotted with 22  obstacles.

The top competitors took between 20-30 minutes to get through it last year, with the slowest competitor clocking in at 1:25:06.

The event is fan friendly, with several photographical vantage points.

Admission is free, but parking costs $5 per carload.

Money raised goes to the Island 22 Equestrian Park Society, a non-profit organization that maintains the park for public use.
