There are a mixture of obstacles along the way including inflatables, climbing, crawling and mud!

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Remember to bring a towel and change of clothes for the way home!

Although this course route is flat and mostly on pathways, unfortunately we would advise that our Pretty Muddy event is unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobility aids and pushchairs due to the nature of the obstacles.

If spectating, the event site is on grass, so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surface.

Please be aware that in wet weather ground conditions on the grassed areas can deteriorate quickly.
