York Pretty Muddy Kids
Sunday 12 Sep 2021
£0.00 Supervising Adult | £10.00 Children
Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids is our brilliant muddy obstacle course just for the little ones. They can take on the obstacles, crawl through the mud pit and have fun with friends, all the while helping raise valuable funds for life-saving research.
Please note, all children taking part must be at least 1.2m tall on day of event.
The meeting point and start line is on The Knavesmire, nearby The Racecourse. The finish line will also be within the similar vacinity.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
Parking is available free of charge for this event at The Knavesmire. Disabled parking spaces will also be available.
On the day signage will direct you the the event car park. Please avoid parking on resdiential roads surrounding the venue.
The nearest train station is York and the city centre is 1.5miles away. There is a regular bus service from the centre to the venue.
The 5k Pretty Muddy Kids 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!
All of our Pretty Muddy Kids events are approximately 5km. Adults accompanying children will run alongside the course but will not be allowed to take part on the obstacles for health and safety purposes.
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!
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.
