Pretty Muddy Obstacle Run

Last Saturday I took part in my very first Pretty Muddy event. Every year I like to take part in a Race for Life event or at least contribute to a charity fundraiser. I've done the Race for Life 5k a couple of times, and after improving my fitness this year, I wanted to do something that pushed me a little more. I contemplated running the 10k, but while scrolling through Facebook one day I saw an event called Pretty Muddy, and after reading the first few lines I was sold! I just thought it looked SO much fun and I knew I had to be involved. I rallied a team of troops and we threw ourselves into training.

If you aren't sure what Pretty Muddy consists of, it's a 5k obstacle run and is made up of several obstacles for you to overcome. The obstacles consist of things like climbing over ropes, pulling yourselves through nets, running through high muddy water and going down a slide into a pool of mud! I seriously had so much fun taking part, and it's great for people to just get involved in. The obstacles aren't particularly hard so anyone can get stuck in and give this a go. Plenty of people were also walking to the obstacles so if you're not a runner you don't need to worry.










Completing this event gave me a massive sense of achievement and I will definitely continue to take part in Pretty Muddy every year. It has even encouraged me to take part in Tough Mudder next year as I loved the obstacles so much! I know it's going to be hard, but I'm determined to give it my best and raise some money for charity.

If you'd like to take part in the Pretty Muddy fun you can find out when and where your local event is being held here - let me know if you give it a go!
