“Pretty Muddy® gives you a good buzz, it’s really uplifting."
"I felt really good after the event, it’s an adrenaline rush but also so touching with all the people that are there on their cancer journey and raising money for the future. I’ve been doing Pretty Muddy® for a few years now, and I really enjoy it, it’s lots of fun and the children did it for the first time last year with special meaning because my husband has cancer at the moment. We’re all going to do it again in the summer.”
Sarah, Pretty Muddy® Preston 2022
Pretty Muddy® events start times are staggered in 'waves', each wave starts every 15 minutes to ensure you're safe on the course. If you're signed up as a group, please make sure you sign up for the same wave time.
Climb, crawl and slide your way around the course at your own pace. We want you to tackle every obstacle the best you can, but if you need to skip to the next one our marshals will be on hand to assist.
To be part of the action, you must be 13 years of age or older at the time of your event. We've got something special for our young participants too - check out our Pretty Muddy® Kids events for kids aged 12 and under!
If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please seek your doctor's advice before registering.
5 kilometres is just over 3 miles and on average takes around an hour to complete dependant on ability.
Our courses are measured using measuring wheels by our team of experienced Event Managers. Measuring wheels are the most accurate way of measuring course distances as they are not impacted by surrounding buildings or terrain, this is why the distance may be different from Garmin, Strava, Apple Watch & Fitbit technology.
