Fun, Learning, and Achievement

NFYFC’s heroic mascot, SuperMoo, is polishing off the running shoes and hitting the treadmill in preparation for the Mascot Gold Cup this month.

The courageous cow will be racing more than 50 other mascots over a furlong and six fences, with a little help from NFYFC’s Competitions Committee Vice-Chairman, David Hamer.

Although up against some stiff competition from the likes of last year’s champion, Eddie the Edgehog, David is certain that SuperMoo will be victorious. So certain, in fact, that he has even produced a video of SuperMoo’s gruelling training regime.

SuperMoo is hoping to raise over £200 for RABI and the road safety charity Brake, who are working with NFYFC to support their rural road safety campaign, Drive It Home.

The Mascot Gold Cup was the brainchild of Yorkshire YFC, who organised the first ever event in 2006. The event has become the world’s largest mascot race, and is now organised by the charity, Sue Ryder. During its history, the Mascot Gold Cup has raised over £100,000 for various charities.

SuperMoo isn’t the only Young Farmer to get involved in the race, Worth Valley YFC member Josh Hudson is also running for Heart Research UK as their mascot, Hartley Heart and Emma Wordsworth from Cawthorne YFC is running as Blaze Bear representing West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service. 

The Mascot Gold Cup takes place on 28th April at Wetherby Racecourse and Conference Centre on their Family Day race meeting. If you would like to sponsor SuperMoo and David, just visit
