Hire Plus Limited from The FullBridge, Maldon, Essex were once again happy to be one of the sponsor of this year’s re-arranged Maldon Mud Race.

Suppling hire equipment to the organisers with aluminium access towers, scaffold and ladders as required. The Event was postponed from the New Year due to extreme cold weather, this dash across the Blackwater estuary is an annual and what an event this was.

A record 12,000 people lined the sea wall in Promenade Park for the unusual sporting event on Easter Monday. Now organisers of the Maldon Mud Race have said they would consider the possibility of moving the event to the Easter weekend on a permanent basis.

The race, which saw more than 250 people run across the River Blackwater, is usually held over Christmas.

Brian Farrington from the Rotary Club of Maldon said the 2011 running had been a “highly successful event”.

“It was one of the best ones we’ve ever had, certainly the weather was on our side and to have some celebrities along as well made it a fantastic event,” he said.

The 500-yard (457m) race was originally due to be held on 28 December, but was postponed due to the extreme cold weather at the time.

Mr Farrington explained any moving of the race from its traditional winter date would need to be discussed.

“We’ll have to review the whole event with Maldon District Council with whose property we share on the day and also talk to the police as well,” he said.

“But it was a highly successful event and if it’s possible to move it, then the committee will make that decision in conjunction with the council.”

Until the next time Roger.
