Obstacles and tunnels at Lincolnshire’s new Mighty Mudder event

Get ready for some muddy fun and over 60 obstacles as St Barnabas Hospice prepares to host Lincolnshire’s first Mighty Mudder event later this year.

The Hospice has introduced the 5k obstacle course to help raise vital funds to support end-of-life care locally. The event will take place at Ancaster Leisure, Wood Lodge from 10am on Sunday, September 22, 2019.

Participants will be able to run through fields of mud, crawl through tunnels, swing through trees, slide down 50ft drops, wade through muddy water and battle their way up hills.

They will be set off in waves of 100, which they can pre-select online when signing up. There is plenty to do for friends and family members including places around the course to stand and watch.

Time to get muddy

Events Fundraiser at St Barnabas Hospice Melissa Gaffney said: “I started working for the Hospice earlier this year and I’m so excited to be launching this brand new event already. In my spare time, I often take part in mass participation sporting events, so it’s great that I can bring this passion to our event.

“Since joining St Barnabas, I’ve met so many amazing people who come together at these events to raise money in memory of loved ones, reach personal goals or to have fun. Mighty Mudder is the perfect event for those wanting a challenge that’s a little different, whether you want to raise sponsorship money or not.”
