Maldon Mud Race 2015

With the Maldon Mud race fast approaching, we wanted to share our view from last year's event! In one word, Smelly! Messy and a whole lot of fun.

The promenade park was full of spectators and we watched in bewildered awe as the participants made their way to the start of the race.

There were amazing costumes, spider man, Iron man and if memory serves one late entrant with no costume at all!!

The race started and some ran, walked and crawled their way around the river bed and back to the finish line, some descended into literal mud-slinging!

The day was thoroughly entertaining and good fun for the whole family. There are only a few places left for anyone wanting to enter this years event, and it promises to be more muddy, more smelly and more fun than ever!

The Maldon mud race will take place on 26th of April 2015
