Course information

The Swindon Pretty Muddy route starts and finishes in the field adjacent to the play area and meanders around Lydiard Park, taking in views of the house and lake. The route then heads out into the surroundings grounds looping around back to the finish area. The event has our fun obstacles throughout the route to do. The course is primarily on pathways with sections on mowed grass.

Meeting point

The start is located in the field next to the play area.

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 and when needed.

Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your start time.

Please note there will be no parking charges for participants and spectators parking on the official event car park throughout the event. Normal parking charges will apply to the rest of Lydiard Park, so please ensure you follow the temporary event signage to ensure you do not have to pay.

To access this event parking, please follow signs for Lydiard Park (via Hook Street), not signs for Lydiard House. Parking is not permitted on or via Hay Lane by Lydiard House.

Supporter / spectator access

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.

We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants  to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
