Pretty Muddy®

Cancer plays dirty, but so can we


Pretty Muddy® isn’t like any other fundraising event. It is a muddy obstacle course that women of any ability can climb over, crawl under, and charge through to show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink.

You can choose from either 5k or 10k Pretty Muddy events – and this year we have more events than ever!

    Want to enter as a group?

    To take part you can enter as an individual or a group. If you'd like to take on Pretty Muddy® with a group of friends and family then we have all the information you need.

    How does Pretty Muddy® work?

    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.

    Already signed up?

    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. Of course if you really can’t do it, our Pretty Muddy® marshals will help you skip on to the next one.

    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 on the day. Why not ask friends to look after your valuable belongings – and don’t forget some clean clothes and an old towel.

    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.
