A chance for kids to get muddy – for a good cause


BOYS and girls from Warrington are being invited to get muddy for a good cause – at a brand new event from Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.
All this month, Warrington women are being offered 30 per cent off entry fees for Race for Life 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Pretty Muddy Kids, Half Marathon and Hike events.
Warrington has been chosen to host Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids for the first time at Victoria Park on Sunday May 6 alongside the traditional women only Pretty Muddy Event.
Pretty Muddy Kids is an exciting new obstacle course designed just for children – with added mud, thrills and spills.
From scramble nets and space hoppers to mud chutes and muddy pools, children will face a range of fun and muddy obstacles to crawl under, clamber over and charge through.
The Race for Life family of events also includes the traditional 5k Pretty Muddy course, which thousands of women will take part in at the same venue on the same day.
By taking part in Pretty Muddy Kids, children in Warrington can have fun with friends and help raise valuable funds to beat cancer sooner at the same time. Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.
Sarah Hunter, Cancer Research UK’s Warrington event manager, said: “We can’t wait to bring Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids to Warrington for the very first time.
“The obstacle course promises plenty of fun, thrills and spills and we hope children will rally their friends, family and schoolmates to sign up and make a splash for Cancer Research UK.
“Race for Life events are not competitive and children can complete the Pretty Muddy Kids course at their own pace – climbing, jumping, walking and laughing their way around. Whether they plan to wade their way through the mud or make a big splash, every muddy step they take
will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.
