Course information

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

The 5k Pretty Muddy course is a flat single lap route taking in both The Knavesmire and the perimeter track of The Racecourse. The terrain is a mixture of grass and tarmac pathways. Due to the course being partly on grass, it may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

There are a mixture of obstacles along the way including inflatables, climbing, crawling and mud!

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Remember to bring a towel and change of clothes for the way home!

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

Although this course route is mostly flat and on grass, unfortunately we would advise that our Pretty Muddy event is unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobility aids and pushchairs due to the nature of the obstacles.

If spectating, the event site, course route and car park are all mostly on grass, so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces. Please be aware that in wet weather ground conditions on the grassed areas can deteriorate quickly.

Disabled parking is available at the event car park on The Knavesmire.
