The Mud Yard launches their first race of  2016 at Drayton Manor


Muddy obstacle course run for all the family. A demanding course throughout the grounds of the famous Staffordshire Theme Park –Drayton Manor, Tamworth Staffs. You will encounter woodland, fields, water crossings, manmade and natural obstacles and of course lots and lots of mud.

We are offering 3 runs:-

The Hard Slog – 8-10k obstacle run
The Bog Slog – 4-5k obstacle run
Family Mud Fun 4-5k obstacle run

(The Family Run will be open to Adults and children aged 11-15 years over a 4-5km distance and will comprise a similar course to the Bog Slog inc lot of the obstacles however there will be less water crossings for extra safety for the younger runners – all children must be accompanied by an Adult)

You will be crawling, sliding, climbing, ducking and diving with a huge smile on your face as you enjoy the camaraderie between you and your fellow runners.

Run for charity or just for fun – you will be supporting our chosen charities as you go! Sign up a team of 10 and get one Place Free 

Whichever distance you choose we guarantee you will have lots of fun, experience encouragement and motivation from our marshals and your fellow runners and a great atmosphere at the start/finish line.

Drayton Manor Theme Park will already be open for the Easter period on 19th March too so once you’ve completed your run and cleaned off in our hose down area you can continue the adrenalin rush by going on some of the rides.  Why not make a weekend of it with an overnight stay at the Drayton Manor Hotel for the Friday or Saturday night also plus camping facilities available on site.

Drayton Manor features some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around! Apocalypse is the world’s first stand up tower drop. Shockwave is Europe’s only stand up rollercoaster. Stormforce 10 is ‘the best water ride in the country’ (Daily Express). Maelstrom is the only gyro swing to make you face outwards! Pandemonium turns your world upside down! And the incredible G-Force is a rollercoaster ride like you’ve never had before! This £3 million ride takes terrified thrillseekers through a series of high banked twists and turns at speeds of up to 70 kph at 4.3 Gs, whilst hanging by the hip! There’s also a host of fantastic family entertainment with The Pirate Adventure, Drayton Manor’s live theatres - and the Drunken Barrels is fantastic new fun for all the family! For the first time in Europe, Thomas and Friends have their very own home at Drayton Manor Park!
