The Swindon Pretty Muddy Kids route starts and finishes in the field adjacent to the play area and meanders around Lydiard Park, taking in views of the house and lake. The route then heads out into the surroundings grounds looping around back to the finish area.
The Pretty Muddy Kids route is the same as the Pretty Muddy adults event. A parent or guardian are required to take part with children for Pretty Muddy Kids and stay with them throughout the course where possible. 1 adult can take part with up to 3 children. Adults must run alongside children, but not go on the obstacles themselves. Accompanying adults are required to wear the same running number as their children for safety reasons.
There will not be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. You will be able to refill this at the refill station when you finish.
Please arrive 15 to 20 mins before
