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

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.

The route starts and finishes in the very centre of Victoria Park. The 5k course is a single lap route that is almost completely flat. The route takes participants around the football and rugby pitches within the park and then on to the national towpath that surrounds the park. Upon returning along the towpath, the course turns left on to the paths within the park. The route cuts back onto the main field with about 1km to go before looping back around to the finish line.

Pretty Muddy obstacles are designed to be suitable for all levels of fitness and experience, you can conquer as many or as little as you feel comfortable with.
