Meeting point

The meeting point and start line is within Thornes Park in a field that runs alongside Lawefield Lane near the playground. The finish line will also be within a similar vicinity.

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.

There is no designated event parking available at the venue. The car park by the Athletics Stadium is closed to participants due to route running alongside it. The bottom of this car park can be used for disabled users only. Thorne Road car park is open as usual for park users.

The nearest train station is Wakefield Westgate Rail Station which is a 10-15 minute walk away. There are a number of buses that run along Thornes Road and Park Grove Road which are a 3 min walk away from the event site.

Course information

The Wakefield 5k course is a single lap route mostly on grass and paths. The route is undulating in parts with an occasional slight incline. Due to the course being 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!
