The Sunderland route is a single lap course set in the grounds of this former colliery that starts and finishes on the field adjacent to the children’s play area. The route explores the park, taking in the lake, local wildlife and providing beautiful views of Penshaw Monument and across the North East. The course is mainly on footpaths with a couple of hills along the way. The main event site is on grass so may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather. There are a mixture of obstacles along the way including inflatables, climbing, crawling and mud!
Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as water will only be available at the finish.
Remember to bring a towel and change of clothes for the way home!
The start line is located on the field adjacent to the children's 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/when needed.
Free event parking is provided at this venue. Follow directions from stewards and signage on the day.
There are a number of buses that run along Chester Road, all of which are accessible to Herrington Country Park.
Unfortunately Pretty Muddy is not suitable for wheelchair users due to the nature of the event as an obstacle run.
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.
