Mission Mud


*Please note the booking deadline has now passed, however, we have 20 places at the event for people to register on the day. These places will be issued on a strictly first come, first serve basis and will be charged at £50pp. To register on the day, please arrive at 9am. 


We are thrilled to announce that Mission Mud is back! On Sunday 10th October we will once again be hosting a 5km mud challenge at the Wild Forest in Kelvedon Hatch, well-known for its wet, muddy and incredibly fun events... and this one is all in aid of our Hospice.


If you love a physical challenge, as well as the idea of a course full of undulating farmland, woodland, lakes and bogs, then this challenge was made for you!


There are obstacles, thrown in for good measure, that will challenge your resolve, such as the Zip Wire and the Slide of Death - duct taping your trainers on isn't such a bad idea!


Do not fear, no experience is necessary, just a sense of adventure and determination! After all, we're all in this together! Mission Mud is ideal for families, friends or work colleagues to register as teams, creating muddy memories and fun in the mud for all (minimum age to participate is 13)!

So if squelching through mud and being totally unrecognisable at the finish sounds like a laugh, then this is the race for you! Click on the 'book now' button to register your team today.
