The Muddy Mission is held on the Nuts Challenge military assault course – one of the biggest and most well-known obstacle courses in Europe. All fitness levels can take part in the Muddy Mission. It is designed to be a challenge but you can always walk it. The course is a 5k circular route and can take from 1hr to 2.5hrs for people to complete. 10k runners will complete two laps of the 5k course. Lots of crawling on your hands and knees and climbing up river banks and cargo netting. There are a lot of obstacles so if you aren’t sure that you can tackle one, please walk around and go on to the next. You will also need to be able to wade through water that may be up to chest height.
1 water station approximately halfway around the course. Water, snacks and foil blankets will also be available at the finish line. Professional medical cover is provided at the start/finish area and on the course by Want Medical. Please give way to any emergency vehicles that require access to the course.
There are awards for the fastest male and female. All runners will receive a bespoke finisher’s medal on completing the Muddy Mission.
Spectators can watch for free, the majority of the course is accessible on foot (although bring good shoes, as it's obviously very muddy!)
Parking is free, we recommend competitors arrive together as spaces are limited.
Food, hot and cold drinks are available for purchase at the start/finish area.
Parkinson’s UK manages your booking, race administration and sponsorship money. Course routes, safety and logistics are planned and managed in collaboration with Action Days Out.
You must be 14 years and above to take part. 14-16 year olds must be accompanied around the course with a guardian and have our signed disclaimer. 17 year olds do not need to be accompanied on the course but must still have our signed disclaimer. Signed disclaimers can be returned on the day of the race
Friends, family and children are welcome to come along and watch.
We’re expecting between 200 and 300 runners.
Dependent on the numbers of runners, you may be able to sign up on the day. The online registration system will shut on Monday 12th June 2017.
You will need to arrive an hour before the race starts to pick up your race number, timing chip and sign the race waiver.
Toilets and limited changing facilities are available. There are 4 very basic cold water showers. Please bring a towel and a change of clothing along with bin bags to store your dirty clothing. There is plenty of parking (please expect a 5 minute walk to the registration area) and a free bag drop. The bag drop is not staffed so please leave only non-valuable items. Please leave other valuables in your car; the car park is manned all day. There is a staffed key drop area where you can leave your keys.
We recommend wearing:
Cold Weather – base layers, gloves, hats, windproof top and warm socks.
Warm Weather – T-shirts and running bottoms made of sport fabrics. Please bear in mind if you choose to wear shorts and a short-sleeved t-shirt, it may result in grazes and cuts.
Footwear – Trainers (please make sure your laces are tied tightly as they can get sucked off in the mud!) No spikes or studded shoes are allowed.
Do not take part if you feel unwell/injured before the race. The organisers reserve the right to prevent participation on the day due to medical grounds. If you feel unwell during the race, let the nearest marshal know and they will call for medical assistance. No refunds are provided if you cancel or do not show up on the day.

We ask that each runner with a Parkinson’s UK entry pledges to raise a minimum sponsorship of £150. There is no minimum sponsorship for a standard entry but we suggest you aim to fundraise £50. Help us reach our goal of raising £26,000. Sponsorship from the Muddy Mission supports our vital work improving the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson’s. If you would prefer to specify how your money is spent, please let us know as soon as possible.
We provide you with sponsorship forms and regular e-newsletters containing lots of useful fundraising and training tips. We can also provide fundraising materials such as collection tins, banners and posters on request.
Your pack containing on the day information and a breathable running top will be sent out at least 2 weeks before the race. You will need to pick up your race number and timing chip at the registration desk on the morning of the Muddy Mission.
