Get ready for some muddy good fun!

Get ready for some muddy good fun! Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is thrilled to be supported by The Dorset Mud Run.

Held at Stock Gaylard near Sturminster Newton, the Dorset Mud Run will take place on Saturday 18 May 2024. Runners are challenged to take on 6km of challenging and fun obstacles, including swinging over ditches, a scramble up mud hills, crawling under cargo nets and wading through ponds. There’s plenty of mud and stunning scenery and the course finishes on the best obstacle course in the UK. There’s a bar and plenty of food stands to enjoy a well-deserved feast once the course has been tackled.

Participants taking part for Diverse Abilities will receive a discount for entry, as well as the charity’s support with their fundraising.  Every penny raised will support more than 1,600 children and adults with profound and physical disabilities across Dorset, and their families. It’s services are extensive including Langside School, Coping with CHAOS, The Beehive Centre and an Advice Team.

Francesca Potton, community fundraiser at Diverse Abilities commented: “We are incredibly grateful to the Dorset Mud Run organisers for supporting Diverse Abilities’ through their event and giving people who are fundraising for us an entry discount. Taking part in this event is a great way to fundraise for Diverse Abilities, as well as having a great day out with friends, family or colleagues.”

Entry is just £25, with discounted entry for fundraising for Diverse Abilities. Participants receive a Mud Run t-shirt, Diverse Abilities goody bag and a free bear or soft drink at the end of the race.
