About Pretty Muddy
On the day
You fundraise, we discover
"I got muddy and I liked the bouncy castle slide at the end!"
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.
The start and finish area will be located between Mote Park Pavilion cafe, Maidstone Leisure Centre and 'Mote Park Main Children's Playground' (as labelled on Google Maps).

There will be free of charge parking at the event from 09:00, but we encourage you to consider public transport and car sharing. Please note that there are paid car parks on site accessible from 08:00 which you may also choose to use.
For anyone intending on parking at Mote Park, the designated Race for Life car park opens at 09:00 and will close at 16:00, so please ensure that your vehicle is moved by this time. Any cars left in this car park after this time will be locked in until the following day.
When leaving by car, please exit by turning left onto Willow Way (right turns will cause congestion) then take a right onto Park Way which will take you on to the A229. This will really help car congestion on the day of the event and get you home quickly.
Due to the nature of the event it is not suitable for wheelchair users. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please seek your doctor's advice before registering.
