The thrilling, challenging, and muddy obstacle course Raw Challenge is returning to the Central Coast in October 2022! And we can hand-on-heart vouch for how awesome it will be, because we’ve done it!

Playing in Puddles’ reviewers (both big and little) took part in their March event and we had an absolute ball. We got covered in mud, waded through water, clambered up warped walls, balanced across poles, and slid down pipes. It was some of the most fun we’ve had in, like, forever!

So if you’ve been considering doing this challenge with your kids, do it! We promise you won’t regret it. Or if you’re a Raw Challenge veteran and this is your annual jam, then what are you waiting for? Read on to get all the muddy details and to sign up!

Raw Challenge Youth Wave

There are a number of Raw Challenge waves you can participate in, but for young families wanting to embark on an adventure together, the Youth Wave is where it’s at.

Children aged 5-12 years, along with their accompanying adults, will conquer the 2.5km long youth course that’ll have them jumping, climbing, balancing, and crawling their way through up to 20 different obstacles – it’s no mean feat!
