Nearly 600 runners have signed up for the mud-tastic 5km run - and this year will be going face-to-face with brand new obstacles.

Letchworth-based Garden House Hospice Care chief executive Sue Plummer said: "I am really looking forward to taking part again this year and would encourage people who are thinking about signing up to come along and get muddy with us.

GHHC has also put out an appeal to raise £7,500 for its Giant Leap Day fund - a sum to cover the cost of running the Hospice for an extra day on a leap year.
