Pretty Muddy: We Did It!

Dawn, Sarah, Lauren and Ellie completed the 5K Pretty Muddy run for Cancer Research UK on Saturday, raising over £1000 for the charity.

Despite forecasts of rain, Saturday afternoon was luckily sunny! We headed to Heaton Park for some muddy fun all for a great cause.

After our warm-up with everyone taking part, we headed to the start line. The 5K was full of fun but challenging obstacles including crawling through muddy tunnels and under ropes, bouncing through the mud on space hoppers and being tackled by gladiators. At one point, Ellie lost a shoe and carried on running through the mud in socks!

The final obstacle was a blow up slide landing in lots of muddy water and we decided to have a final slide in the mud to really earn the amazing donations we’ve received. See it here in our muddy video!

One man at the end of the run shouted, “You’re the muddiest team I’ve seen today!”. Success!!

We completely smashed our £500 target by 237%, raising £1,187.66 plus Gift Aid, totalling £1426.41!

Thank you so much for all of your kind donations, they mean so much to us.

All money raised will help Cancer Research UK beat cancer by funding their vital work across the UK. Find out more about the charity and how you can help here.
