The course

The Pretty Muddy Reading route offers a fantastic flat course around the venue of Reading Festival. Taking in the picturesque River Thames and surrounding farmland as well as our fantastic obstacles, this is a wonderful course on a mixture of grass, country paths and tarmac.

Meeting point

The meeting point is right alongside the river.
