We had a fantastic turn out on Saturday for our annual Muddy Beast Fun Run and Obstacle Course held in Oxley Park.
After a quick warm up outside the Leisure Centre with Gill, one of our amazing Volunteers the runners were off to the first obstacle in the park which was to climb over a stack of bales of straw and then across the park, which was yes very muddy.
At the end of the park runners turned right and had a steep climb to the top of Oxley Park and then a downhill run on to the top football field where there were various obstacles including flipping tyres, climbing a wooden frame and then jumping off, skipping, crawling under a cargo net, three-legged race and sack race. After completing one lap the runners carried on for lap two!
After the second lap the runners headed back down the hill to the Leisure Centre to the finish line where they collected a Goody Bag, a medal and Certificate of Achievement.
Well done to all our finishes. It was great to see so many families taking part too.
