Although this course route is mostly on paths and only slightly uphill in parts, 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 surfaces. Please be aware that in wet weather ground conditions on the grassed areas can deteriorate quickly. The car park and most parts of the course are hardstanding.

Disabled parking is available at the venue in the car parks on site, with the Lake Car Park at the Sheepfoot Lane entrance being the closest so site.
