Pretty Muddy®

Cancer plays dirty, but so can we

Pretty Muddy® isn’t like any other fundraising event. It is a 5k muddy obstacle course where women of any ability can climb, jog and walk all over cancer.

5k is just over three miles and is achievable for all ages and abilities so you can take part however you wish to join the fight against cancer.

Want to run? You can. Prefer to walk? You can do that too. Fancy dancing the whole way round? Go for it!

Just put your postcode into our event finder tool and look out for the Pretty Muddy® events filter to just see those events. To take part, simply enter as an individual. If you'd like to enter more people at the same time as registering yourself, you'll need to enter as a group.

Pretty Muddy® events are in waves, each starting 15 minutes apart to make sure everyone on the course is safe. If you enter as a group, make sure you all enter the same wave as you cannot move waves once you’ve signed up.

You must be female and 13 or over at the time of your event and if you have a pre-existing medical condition, you should seek your doctor’s advice before registering.

Once you’ve entered, we have lots of fantastic resources to help you get ready for your Race for Life Pretty Muddy® event.

What will the obstacles be?

We want you to give every single obstacle your absolute best as this is your way to show cancer you mean business. Of course if you really can’t do it, our Pretty Muddy® marshals will help you skip on to the next one. To get an idea of the obstacles, take a look at photos from last year’s events.

Are there showers and lockers at Pretty Muddy® events?

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to provide lockers, changing facilities or showers at these events, so please bear this in mind and ask friends to look after your valuable belongings and your clean clothes or towels. Find out more about what to expect on the day.

How long does it take to complete the 5k course?

The obstacles vary at each event so we can’t say exactly how long it will take, but joggers usually finish the course in around 40 minutes and walkers take about an hour. Remember; our events aren’t competitive so there is no pressure to finish in a certain time.
