If you are a fitness fanatic, enjoy running through the mud, or just want to have fun with friends, and family, why not sign up to take part at the scenic Woodhall Estate at Watton-at-Stone, near Hertford?

Adam Brockett, head of community and events at Isabel Hospice, said: “We look forward to welcoming people of all ages and abilities from across the county to take on our obstacle course. It will be muddy, and it will be mayhem but whatever people’s reason for taking part, we guarantee they’ll have a smile on their face.

"Plus, every pound raised through entry and sponsorship will be helping your chosen hospice to continue their vital care in our community. Whether you join Team Isabel or Team Garden House, we can’t wait to welcome you in March!”

The new event will be fun for all the family and with the introduction of a 1km Mini Muddy course gives younger supporters under 11 the chance to get involved too, as everyone comes together to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic hospices.
