Eastnor Castle Mud Bath
Eastnor Castle is the home of the Land Rover test centre, and over 60 miles of trails wind through the deer park and woodland, which put both vehicles and drivers through the toughest of paces. These man made trenches and troughs exaggerate the natural terrain to give a year round muddy experience, and maintained with additional water, these mud pits will be just as lovely in the Summer as they would be in the Winter!
We will be making the most of the terrain as it lies, picking the muddiest trails the Estate has to offer. There will be a few natural obstacles - fallen trees to navigate, gullies to cross and of course, lots of mud to roll in! In between the mud, there are some good hills, and like all our events, everyone is always most welcome to come and take part.
Race HQ will be set up in the fields adjacent to Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Eastnor, Ledbury, Herefordshire HR8 1EN

A range of caterers selling hot drinks and food, as well as our hog roast and beer tents.
Toilets, changing tents and bag storage on site. (Definitely consider bringing a change of clothes for after the race)
We will be starting the event off in waves of 100 runners at a time, setting off at 10min intervals. This enables everyone to naturally spread out and enjoy the course. All waves are open to runners of all abilities so the choice is yours - but remember, the later you start, the muddier you will get!
Your race number will be available to collect from the desk linked to your EVENT WAVE, not your race wave.
Runners aged 6 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Min age 3. There is no charge for the accompanying adult, unless they wish to claim a finishers medal, at which point we ask they register as well.
Maximum ratio of 2 children to 1 adult. Muddy and water sections are deep in places. We suggest adults test the water for depth before children enter the water, there will be dry alternative routes. Children must cross the line with accompanied adult in their category or no result will be recorded.
Distances are approximate and we reserve the right to add on a few metres to find some extra good muddy bits :-)
