Mud Bath Pipley Wood
Pipley Wood - 28th January 2018 - Muddy trail race with hog roast, beer and bonfire!

Back for it's second year, the Pipley Wood Mud Bath treat runs to mud, more mud, natural obstacles, water crossings and even more MUD! Expect to come back filthy muddy from this really fun event. Warm yourself after the race with our post event bonfire and treat yourself to a beer of bath ale's finest and a delicious hog roast for just £5! There are veggie, gluten free and soft drink options, please indicate on your entry form if you would like one of these options. Spectators can also order a hog roast in advance at £8 per head, please add to your entry form when you register.

The races use entirely natural paths and natural obstacles. The route uses public footpaths and trails in the privately owned ancient woodland of Pipley Wood. The routes are naturally water logged at this time of year and the lesser used paths in Pipley Wood muddy up a treat! We will take you on a tour of the woodland along gulleys and up ravines, over fallen trees and under others.

This is still very much a running race, with a few natural obstacles thrown in at Pipley wood. We see it as a very muddy running race, negotiating the land as it lies - it is not a full on obstacle race -  we promise not to shoot you, electrocute you or cover you in honey and throw you in a nest of wasps ;-)
Event Format

In order to keep everyone running we will be starting the event off in waves of 100 runners at a time, setting off at 10min intervals. This enables everyone to naturally spread out and enjoy the course. All waves are open to runners of all abilities so the choice is yours - but remember, the later you start, the muddier you will get!
