As Keen As Mustard Box End Park SwimRun

Boxend Park, Kempston, Bedfordshire

Organiser's Description

There are three races to choose from at the beautiful Box End Park in Kempston: Mild Mustard Sprint 10k Solo; Middling Mustard Half 21k Solo; Middling Mustard Half 21k Team.

The 10k, and the first half of the 21k, weave their way around and through undulating wooded areas in the Park on grass tracks, and in and out of the lake with easy entry and exit points. The 21k then heads onto the first river swim in the Ouse, the 10k heads back to the finish in the Park. The second half of the 21k is more challenging with up and downstream swims and more demanding entry and exits into and out of the river. The run takes you on a mainly flat, compacted riverside path, through wooded areas and a ford, with various river swims along the way.
