About Edinburgh Pretty Muddy 5k and 10k and Pretty Muddy Kids

Pretty Muddy 5k is a fun-filled muddy obstacle course. Scramble over the A-frame, crawl through the mud pit, bounce on the space hoppers and have fun with your friends while raising valuable funds for Cancer Research UK’s lifesaving work.

Pretty Muddy 10k is a fun-filled muddy obstacle course and a great step up from our 5k events. Scramble over the A-frame, crawl through the mud pit, bounce on the space hoppers and have fun with your friends while raising valuable funds for Cancer Research UK’s lifesaving work.

Pretty Muddy Kids is a fun-filled muddy obstacle course just for the little ones. The course is approximately 5k and children can take on the obstacles, crawl through the mud pit and have fun with friends while raising valuable funds for Cancer Research UK’s lifesaving work. Please note children must be 1.2m tall on event day and be accompanied by an adult. Adults accompanying children will run alongside the course but will not be allowed to take part in the obstacles.

Volunteer Roles

Our events simply couldn’t happen without the help and support of volunteers. Whether you are handing out medals, marshalling on the course, cheering participants on or stirring mud at an obstacle, you are making a real difference by giving your time. Whatever time and skills you’ve got to share, we’ve got the perfect role for you.

  • EVENT DAY VOLUNTEER: Get stuck in with anything! From pitching flags and hanging banners to handing out water and medals, you definitely won’t be twiddling your thumbs 
  • COURSE MARSHAL VOLUNTEER: Cheer our runners, walkers and joggers as they take on the course and lift some spirits along the way. You’ll be the extra oomph they need to cross that finish line! 
  • ENQUIRIES VOLUNTEER: With the excitement of race day there’s bound to be questions! Help ease the nerves by supporting our runners and spectators with their queries.

About Cancer Research UK

At Cancer Research UK we pioneer research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. With no government funding, our progress depends on your donations. In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive. Now, our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease by 2034.
