Course information

Our 5k Pretty Muddy event offers a single lap route around the landscaped grounds of Temple Newsam, starting and finishing in front of the impressive Tudor-Jacobean mansion.

The terrain is predominantly path and grass with some small sections of flagstone paths which can be uneven in places. It is generally flat with a small uphill section at the beginning.

These are designed to be suitable for all levels of fitness and experience but you can conquer as many or as little as you feel comfortable with. 

Remember, this event includes mud so bring a towel and change of clothes for the way home!

Please arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time
