About Pretty Muddy
On the day
You fundraise, we discover
“Pretty Muddy® gives you a good buzz, it’s really uplifting."
While your entry fee covers the cost of your event, it's the money you raise that will fund vital research and see more people surviving cancer.
Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events.
The meeting point and start line is on Costello Playing Fields near the Tennis Courts. The finish line will be in a similar vicinity

Due to heavy rainfall in the days leading up to the event, we are unable to offer Pickering Park for event car parking as planned.
To avoid cancelling the event, we have reached out to organisations in the local community and they have kindly offered their assistance.
Alternative car parking is limited, options are as follows:
Sirius Academy West, 296 Anlaby Park Rd S, Hull HU4 7JB – Anytime, limited spaces
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Springfield Way, Hull HU10 6RJ – 12:30 onwards, limited spaces
Priory Park & Ride, Henry Boot Way, Hull HU4 7DY – Please note that it is a 25 minute walk to the event site.
If you are parking on streets nearby, please be respectful to local residents and ensure you are parking considerately
Street parking will be supervised and monitored by security acting on behalf of Cancer Research UK, we have also notified Humberside Police of the situation and will be cooperating with them to ensure minimal disruption. We recommend allowing extra time for your journey.
A limited number of disabled parking spaces will be available at Warners Health Club on Pickering Road, which would also be a recommended drop off area if required.
The nearest train station is Hull Paragon station, and the nearest buses would be to Anlaby Park or Boothferry Road.
Please be kind and courteous to staff and volunteers who are working hard to ensure the event goes ahead, despite challenging circumstances – Together we will beat cancer!
If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event, or wish to bring a carer/helper to accompany you, please contact our Supporter Hotline on 0300 123 0770 and press 1 when prompted (Opening hours are 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday) or email us at email@example.com
Although this course route is mostly flat and on grass, 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, course route and car park are all mostly on grass, so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces. Please be aware that in wet weather ground conditions on the grassed areas can deteriorate quickly.
Disabled Parking is available at Warners Health Club on Pickering Road.
Bring a water bottle
We’re trying to reduce single-use plastic at Pretty Muddy. Please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide an ecofriendly water-refill station at the finish that uses as little single-use plastic as possible.
Bring a change of clothes
If you’re getting Pretty Muddy®, remember to bring spare clothes and a towel. Check the facilities tab above to see what there is at your event. Unfortunately, there are no lockers, changing facilities or showers at the Race for Life events, so please bear this in mind and ask friends to look after your valuable belongings, clean clothes and towels.
Have the right kit
It’s a good idea to check the weather before your event and dress accordingly. Think breathable sports gear (leggings and shorts are ideal) and well-fitting trainers. For Pretty Muddy, wear something you don’t mind getting dirty.

Be sun smart
Stay sun safe by finding shade when you’re not on the course and covering up with clothes, a hat and sunglasses. On parts you can’t cover, use sunscreen with at least SPF15 and a 4 or 5 star rating. Find out more about being sun smart.
Your back sign and race number
Remember to bring your back sign and Race number which will be sent to you in the post – don’t forget safety pins so you can attach them to you.
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. Find out more about Pretty Muddy® obstacles.
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!
