The JCB Mud Run does not have a mass start as it causes too many queues at the various fun elements on-course. By allowing you to leave at any time within your allotted time slot, you will have a fairly clear route ahead of you.
Please arrive at the site in your running kit. Wear appropriate clothing and shoes and remember to tie those laces up ‘tight’! Off-road running shoes will be best but don’t worry if you haven’t got them, normal running shoes will be fine. We recommend full-length tights to protect your knees but they aren’t essential.
Please arrive in good time for you registration wave; at least an hour before you wish to run. All vehicles arriving must park in the JCB headquarters’ car park; you will be then be ferried to the race via a 5 minute coach trip. Please park in the staff car park on Denstone Road ST14 5JP. Teams must arrive together, and spectators must also arrive with the runners they are supporting.
On arrival at the site, you’ll see the information marquee, baggage and car key drop area, changing marquees, toilets etc. Once you are ready to race, go to the registration tent where you will be given your race numbers, your timing chip and your t-shirt. Teams must run together and only one chip per team will be given.
*Please note that dogs are NOT permitted on site.
There will be water available to drink on the course. Please note that we discourage the use of MP3 players as the course is tough and they will get muddy and wet – guaranteed! There are changing facilities to use post-run but no showers (there is, however, a lovely cold wash at the end of the race!).
All runners will receive free food and a drink while spectators will be able to buy food and drinks from our catering unit. Spectators viewing areas will be clearly marked along easy walking trails. Walking times for spectators to the best and muddiest obstacles are approximately 5 – 10 minutes. There will also be fun activities for children to do on site whilst the parents are getting dirty…
Results will be posted on the website following the event – please follow the JCB Mud Run Facebook site here for race details and pictures before and after the event! Pictures will be available from MBR Events – a link to their website will be emailed out to you post-race. We hope you have a fantastic time, and we will see you on the start line!
