The course

The Pretty Muddy Reading route has a fantastic atmosphere as the course criss-crosses around the Park. The course is mainly on grass, taking in a short section of woodland tracks and is generally flat - there are a couple of inclines, however whatever goes up must come down! And of course there are all the fun Pretty Muddy obstacles too. Please note this course is not suitable for dogs.

Meeting point

The meeting point is in front of the stage, which can be found by following the pathway from the car park across the road. There will be signs and volunteers to follow on the day.

On the day

Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls we’ll have, including face painting, a bouncy castle and refreshments. There are no showers or changing facilities at this event, so you may wish to bring an old towel for your journey home.

Pretty Muddy Pics!

With all that mud around, you’re not going to be taking your camera with you as you conquer the obstacles. So keep an eye out for SportCam who will be at the event taking photos and filming you coming down the mud-slide. You’ll be able to view and buy photos of yourself all muddy at www.sportcam.net and watch your turn on the mud slide at prettymuddy2016.sportcamvideo.net. They will be available online in the couple of days following your event.
