Can I purchase a ticket on the day?
All tickets must be purchased in advance and tickets will not be available to purchase on the day.
Please remember to bring your ticket with you either on your phone or printed. We will need to see this in order to issue you with your wrist band. (Eventbrite, our ticket provider, has an app you can download, and in which you can store your tickets.) Remember all children age 10 and under need an adult to go around the course with them.
All children will receive one medal on completing the course, regardless of how many times you choose to complete it.
What should I wear?
Something that you don’t mind getting covered in mud!
Long sleeves and trouser is advisable and suitable footwear, like an old pair of trainers. Football boots and spikes are not allowed.
Please bring a change of clothes, wet wipes and a towel for when you have finished, and a dustbin liner to put all of your muddy clothes in.
Are there toilets and showers on site?
We have portable toilets on site.
We do not have showers, but we will have a basic wash station where you will be able to rinse off any excess mud.
We do not have any changing facilities. We do not have anywhere on site to store valuables; we advise you leave these at home.
How many obstacles are there?
We have over 15 obstacles for you to tackle on the farm mud run. Each obstacle will be marshalled.
Our marshals will be on hand for your safety and to offer you support. In the event of an injury please inform the marshal closest to you who will be able to assist you further. Any offensive behaviour towards a marshal or other participants will result in being asked to leave the site.
Will there be refreshments?
We will have hot and cold refreshments and a BBQ.
The refreshment stand will accept both cash and card.
Alternatively, you are welcome to picnic in the registration field.
Who is the mud run aimed at age wise?
We have planned this event for children aged 4 and up. Under 10’s must be accompanied by an adult due to the nature of the run and the obstacles, plus it is a great family day out! All adults completing the course must purchase a ticket. Children aged 10 and above we advise one adult to every 4 children. Parents and guardians are responsible for their children.
Can I spectate?
We love seeing spectators cheering and they are welcome free of charge. There will be designated areas for spectators to see many of the obstacles from. You won’t be able to see the whole course and race, but you will be able to some of the obstacles and the start and finish lines. We do ask that you keep within the spectator areas for your own safety; only those with a wrist band can enter the course.
What happens if I need to cancel my tickets?
Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable including where unable to attend due to illness or injury or a scheduling conflict. Pumpkin Patch Farms Ltd will only offer refunds in the event of cancelling or postponing the Farm Mud Run.
