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.

There are a mixture of obstacles along the way to climb over and under, crawl through and slide down. These are designed to be suitable for kids of all levels of fitness and experience but they can conquer as many or as little as they feel comfortable with. Adults accompanying children can run alongside the course but will not be allowed to take part in the obstacles for health and safety reasons.

Remember to 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

Parking

Unfortunately due to the nature of this event, this event cannot accommodate wheelchair users, pushchairs or dogs. This is due to the large sections of the course being on grass or narrow woodland tracks with no suitable path available as an alternative. 

All vehicles must access the venue via Temple Newsam Road but there is also pedestrian access via Elm Walk. Please see travel information section for detail on blue badge parking.

The start and finish areas are both on the same grass field but are within approximately 70m of each other and on flat ground.
