There will be some free of charge event car parking at Gloucester Park, SS14 3GR. This is limited but Gloucester Park is a short walk from the Town Centre so the Town Centre car parks are also an option. We ask that participants refrain from parking in the retail parks to avoid congestion in this area. The closest train station is Basildon which is 2 miles away. First Bus also operate a service to Gloucester Park – see timetables at www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/.
Designated cycle parking - There are 15 cycle spaces located at the front of the Basildon Sports Village building.
Please check back for information on electric charging points.
Due to the nature of the event it is not suitable for wheelchair users. However If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Pretty Muddy event, or wish to bring a carer/assistant to accompany you or if you need to bring a guide runner, 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
Blue badge parking is available within Basildon Sporting Village Car Park, SS14 3GR (please note that this is separate from the designated participant/ spectator parking area) or alternatively, you can get dropped off next to the event site before parking up in Gloucester Park.
Bring a water bottle
We want to make Pretty Muddy® as sustainable as possible by reducing our single use plastic consumption, so please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide a water-refill solution that is cost-effective for the charity and environmentally-friendly.
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.

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!
