About Pretty Muddy
On the day
You fundraise, we discover
“Pretty Muddy® gives you a good buzz, it’s really uplifting."
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 line can be found by following the pathway across the road from the car park and following signage.
If using what3words, enter ///stale.wins.bars in the free app, to find the exact starting point.
Car parking is available at the venue. Please use the main drive into the park from Liebenrood Road to enter the event parking area on the right hand side of the drive. Stewards will guide you in & out of the venue.
As a result of the higher volume of traffic we do expect some delays in accessing the park. Whist we endeavour to reduce this as much as possible we do ask that you plan to arrive prior to your event start time. We have lots to keep you entertained on the event site prior to your start time.
The nearest station is Reading West which is about a 15 minute walk to Prospect Park.
Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.
Whilst this event is not accessible for wheelchair users given the nature of the obstacles, the event site is accessible for spectators with wheelchairs. There are blue badge holder parking spaces available in Prospect Park Car Park (on hardstanding). The event site is approximately a 90m walk from this car park and the event site is entirely on grass.
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
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.
Have the right kit

Be sun smart
Covering up will protect your skin. Find out more about being sun smart. Don't forget a hat and sunscreen.
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.
We're with you every step of the way
