Hylands Park to host the first ever event
CHELMSFORD boys and girls are being invited to get muddy for a good cause – at a brand new event from Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.
The city has been chosen to host Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids for the first time at Hylands Park on Sunday, July 22.
Pretty Muddy Kids is a new exciting obstacle course designed just for children. From scramble nets and space hoppers to mud chutes and muddy pools.
The Race for Life family of events also includes the traditional 5k, 10k and Pretty Muddy courses.
Gill Burgess, Cancer Research UK’s Chelmsford Event Manager, said: “We can’t wait to bring Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids to the city for the very first time. The obstacle course promises plenty of fun, thrills and spills and we hope children will rally their friends, family and schoolmates to sign up and make a splash.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring women-only series of 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, half marathon and hiking events which raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer sooner by funding vital research.
The entry fee for Pretty Muddy Kids is £10. The event is open to boys and girls aged from 5 to 12 years old and there is a minimum height requirement of 1.2m. All children must be accompanied by a supervising adult, who have free entry to the event.
Gill continued: “Pretty Muddy Kids has all the fun and camaraderie of our much loved Pretty Muddy events – but with an extra dose of muddy fun for the little ones.”
Throughout the month of January, Chelmsford women are being offered 30 per cent off entry fees for Race for Life events.
