THERE is still time to sign up for the St Clare Hospice charity mud run, Muddy Mayhem, at Brentwood’s renowned Nuclear Races venue on Sunday 7th July 2019.
St Clare’s Muddy Mayhem event includes a 5k mud run Nuclear Races in Brentwood, and boasts many of the popular Nuclear obstacles such as the Zip Wire. In total, there are 40 obstacles to take on throughout the run to challenge even the toughest mud-lovers!
It’s hoped that this mud-loving fundraising event will raise more than £5,000 for the West Essex and East Herts charity, who offer specialist, compassionate palliative care to local people living with a life-limiting illness, and their families, relatives and carers.
“We’re looking for as many people as possible to come along to Muddy Mayhem this summer,” urges Emma Broadbent, St Clare’s Challenges and Events Fundraiser. “This will be our second mud-run event we’ve hosted with Nuclear Races – and if it’s anything like last year, we know it’s going to be a hugely fun and exciting event for all involved!
“Taking part in a mud-run is so exhilarating, and is definitely an experience I’d encourage everyone to do – especially when you know you’re raising vital funding for your local Hospice. We hope that we can raise £5,000 from Muddy Mayhem this year, which will help us to continue offering and developing our care for local people who need us.”
Rose Morris, 65, from Harlow, has convinced some of the people in her gym, at Mark Hall Sports Centre, to join her in taking on the Muddy Mayhem challenge in aid of St Clare. “It’s a great challenge for me to do the 5k,” said Rose. “I used to be in the army and this is a bit like one of the activities I would have done as part of army training and, like the army, it’s great to be doing this as part of a team.”
Those interested in channelling their inner mud-lover in aid of St Clare this July can register via the Hospice’s website at stclarehospice.org.uk/muddymayhem, either individually or as part of a team. Alternatively, people can simply sign up on the day (Sunday 7th July) from 10.15am – with the run setting off at 11am.
Registration is £50 per adult and £40 per child (13-17). Participants may also choose to raise additional sponsorship in aid of St Clare if they so wish, as a donation to help fund the Hospice’s care and support for local people. Participants must be 13+ years to take part. Registration includes a St Clare t-shirt and medal. Once each participant has registered, they will be sent a link for the Nuclear Races Disclaimer which they must complete before the event.
