Join us for Farleigh Hospice’s Midsummer Mudness challenge

Set in the Wild Forest in Kelvedon Hatch near Brentwood, home to the renowned Nuclear Races.

Get together a group of colleagues or friends, sign-up as part of a team, or come along as a smaller party or join as an individual.

Once you are in the forest, you’ll be faced with an adventurous 90-minute obstacle course of around 2km as you walk, run, climb and wade through woodland and bogs, finishing with zipwires into water and the famous death slide!

All participants will be guided around the route in small groups of approximately 30 people by an expert Wild Forest member of staff.

It’s not about how quickly you do it - it’s about taking on the challenge - and getting really muddy!

Afterwards, there will be time to clean up using the hot wash downs. Then enjoy some refreshments. Food and a selection of drinks will be available to purchase on site.

Helpful items to bring with you:

  • Be prepared for all weather conditions and please wear suitable clothes and footwear – old trainers are recommended. No football boots, pumps, wellies etc.
  • Old gym/sports kit that you don't mind getting muddy is ideal to wear, but not cotton jogging bottoms as these will get very wet when heavy. It is recommended that you wear layers, so you can adjust when necessary.
  • A change of warm clothes and shoes to wear after you have completed the course.
  • Hot wash downs and changing rooms are available. However, no shower gel is allowed.
  • A towel
  • Black sack for muddy clothes
  • Suncreen if the weather is warm and sunny
  • We recommend that you leave any valuables and jewellery at home

Please note that spectators are not allowed out on the course. Dogs are not allowed on site.
