Course information

Our 5k Pretty Muddy Kids event offers a flat, single lap route around The Stray. The terrain is a mixture of grass and paths.

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. 

Unfortunately this event cannot accomodate wheelchair users, pushchairs or dogs. Please see our other events for accessibility

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