Course information

The Pretty Muddy Swindon route meanders around Lydiard Park, taking in views of the house and lake. The course is primarily on pathways with sections on mowed grass. This Pretty Muddy event has our fun obstacles throughout the route to do together. There are lots of opportunities for supporters to watch the fun at each obstacle and the whole event has a fantastic atmosphere.

Meeting point

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

The start line is in the field next to the play area. Please listen to the host on stage for instructions for starting your wave.

Please note there will be no parking charges for participants and spectators parking on the official event car park throughout the event. Normal parking charges will apply to the rest of Lydiard Park, so please ensure you follow the temporary event signage to ensure you do not have to pay.

To access this event parking, please follow signs for Lydiard Park (via Hook Street), not signs for Lydiard House. Parking is not permitted on or via Hay Lane by Lydiard House. Please car share where possible to avoid queues.

The event site is approximately 75m from this car park and the event site is entirely on grass.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run around the course!

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
