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 20th May 2023. 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 the charity’s Splash Appeal to build a desperately needed hydrotherapy pool for people with profound, lifelong, disabilities at The Beehive, the charity’s activity and therapy centre.  The charity supports hundreds of families affected by disability in Dorset every year.

Helen Mortimer, head of fundraising 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 The Splash Appeal – get muddy whilst raising money to build a warm water pool for people who otherwise have no opportunity whatsoever to get in the water and achieve the incredible health benefits it brings.”

Entry is just £20, with discounted entry for fundraising for Diverse Abilities. To take part please register for a Diverse Abilities discount code at For more information, please email Helen at or call 01202 718266.
