Race for Life messages, Reaseheath

Reaseheath College in Nantwich is to stage a new event from Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, “Pretty Muddy Kids”.

It will be the first time it has been staged and will run alongside the women only event.

It is a new obstacle course designed just for children – with added mud, thrills and spills.

From scramble nets and space hoppers to mud chutes and muddy pools, children will face a range of fun and muddy obstacles to crawl under, clamber over and charge through.

And this month until January 31, Crewe and Nantwich mums are being offered 30% off entry fees for Race for Life 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Pretty Muddy Kids, Half Marathon and Hike events.

The Race for Life family of events also includes the traditional 5k mud course, which thousands of women will take part in at the same venue on Saturday September 15.

Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

Sarah Hunter, Cancer Research UK’s Reaseheath Event Manager, said: “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 for Cancer Research UK.

“Race for Life events are not competitive and children can complete the Pretty Muddy Kids course at their own pace – climbing, jumping, walking and laughing their way around.

“Whether they plan to wade their way through the mud or make a big splash, every muddy step they take will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”

One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but more people are surviving the disease.

Cancer Research UK spent more than £28 million last year in the North West on leading scientific and clinical research.

Sarah added: “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.

“It promises to be a fantastic event for all the family so we urge people across Warrington to sign up right now.”

The entry fee for kids is £10.

The event is open to boys and girls aged 5 to 12, minimum height of 1.2m.

All children must be accompanied by a supervising adult, who have free entry to the event.
