KIDS in Bath are being invited to get muddy at a brand new event from Cancer Research UK's Race for Life.

Pretty Muddy Kids is a new exciting obstacle course designed just for children, and will take place for the first time at Bath Racecourse on Sunday, September 23.

Children will face a range of fun and muddy obstacles to crawl under, from scramble nets and space hoppers, to mud chutes and muddy pools. By taking part, kids can have fun with friends and help raise valuable funds to beat cancer.

Cancer Research UK's Bath Event Manager, Brenda Scott, said: "We can't wait to bring Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids to the city 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.

"Pretty Muddy Kids has all the fun and camaraderie of our much loved Pretty Muddy events, but with an extra dose of muddy fun for the little ones. It promises to be a fantastic event for all the family so we urge people across the city to sign up right now."

The entry fee for Pretty Muddy Kids is £10, and the event is open to boys and girls aged five to ten years old, and there is a minimum height requirement of 1.2m. All children must be accompanied by a supervising adult, who has free entry to the event.

This month, Bath women are also being offered 30 per cent off entry fees for Race for Life 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Pretty Muddy Kids, Half Marathon and Hike events.
