400metres of Mud!!! This may not be the longest race you will ever do in your life unless you are a track sprinter but believe me you will pull yourself out of the mud at the finish line thinking youve just done a 10mile fell run!
Every year (date around xmas/new year) over 200 competitors take on this event which promises you to be covered in mud from head to toe, it involves negotiating a river mud banks where you will find yourself at times knee deep in the mud which zaps every ounce of energy out of you.
The course takes the average person 15mins to complete with many of the competitors resulting to crawling on all fours to get round, just don’t get too stuck and be one of the unfortunate ones that have to be dragged out by a towrope which happens at least once every year.
Location: Maldon, Essex
