The Pretty Muddy Bristol route is a primarily flat course with mixed terrain that mostly follows the perimeter of The Downs, taking in amazing views of Avon Gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge. This event has some extra challenges thrown in with some fun obstacles to do together. There are lots of opportunities for supporters to watch the fun at each obstacle and the whole event has a fantastic atmosphere.
The 5k Course has an overall ascent of 28m throughout the full 5k course.
The course has an amazing atmosphere and is all wrapped up in the heart of Bristol with a great community spirit.
All of our Pretty Muddy Kids events are approximately 5km. Obstacle layout will vary from venue to venue and adults accompanying children will run alongside the course but will not be allowed to take part on the obstacles.
Whilst this course is not accessible for wheelchair users given the nature of the obstacles, the event site is accessible.
There are a limited number of accessible spaces available on Stoke Road which is closed but accessible for wheelchair users and our volunteers.
