Are you up for the Mowsworth Rampage?

Dress up, decorate your ride-on lawnmower, and join us at the starting line! It's going to be a great day out for a good cause. See you there!

Saturday 19 October 2024 - Join us on the Mowsworth Rampage Challenge!

Cancer is NOT fun. But this Ride-on Lawnmower challenge will be.
We're calling on people to join with Cancer Society Nelson Tasman and Nelson Tasman Hospice as we take on this challenge as a tribute to support our local people in our care.

In 1 day, you will cover 86km... on a Ride-on Lawnmower (minus the blades). 

  • YES! That is your challenge. To conquer the Molesworth track. (from Molesworth Station to Hanmer Springs. 
  • Yes, it will be a long hot, dusty slog. Yes, you will be riding a lawn mower with no guts. Yes, you will laugh and curse and think you could walk faster than this (but you can't). 
  • Yes, it will be hard, but this challenge is nothing compared to what cancer patients have to go through every day.

Join Cancer Society Nelson Tasman and Nelson Tasman Hospice and ride with us in the Mowsworth Rampage to raise money to help support our locals.

The Mowsworth Rampage is the coolest, longest, hardest and most gruelling test of endurance on a ride-on lawnmower that we know of. Are you up for the challenge?

Unfortunately, due to heightened wildfire risks and the subsequent closure of Acheron Road in the Molesworth Recreation Reserve, we regret to inform you that our upcoming event scheduled for 23 March 2024 has been postponed.

However, we are excited to share that we have secured a new date for the Mowsworth Rampage, and it will now take place on Saturday, 19 October 2024. The safety of our participants and supporters is our top priority, and we believe this decision is necessary to ensure a secure environment for everyone involved.
