People across North Herts are being invited to clamber, climb, scramble and crawl a muddy 5K obstacle course in aid of Garden House Hospice Care.

The popular course is back from 10am on Sunday, March 26, and for the second year will see participants conquer man-made and natural obstacles around the scenic Woodhall Estate at Watton-at-Stone

There will also be a new 1km Mini Mudder obstacle course route for Under-11s which starts at 11.30am.

Richard Harbon, product and event manager at the hospice, said: "We are delighted to announce the return of our popular Muddy Mayhem event for the sixth year.

"More than 600 muddy warriors of all ages took part last year, raising a fantastic £37,000 for local hospice care. While very muddy we also know this event is extremely fun and attracts many families, work colleagues, sports teams and groups of friends.

"Our Mini Mudder course also gives younger supporters the chance to get involved too."

Hayley Cocks was one of a number of participants from the Hospice at Home team that took part in 2022.

She said: "Last year was a really beautiful course at Muddy Mayhem. We all really enjoyed it apart from the swamp area of the route which was particularly muddy!

"It was fantastic to have such great support as we went along and all to raise money for local hospice care to keep our services available for the community."

Entry costs £35 for adults, £25 for children aged 11 to 16 and £5 for children under-11.

Registration includes a commemorative medal for all finishers and refreshments.
