Hello Myddle Muddlers!

Distance: 10K, 5K and 1 mile fun run.

Where are we?
The race will begin and end at Myddle Primary School playing fields SY4 3RP. Access by foot through the staff carpark around the side of the school.

What time can I arrive?
Registration desks open at 09.15am. Don’t forget the clocks go forward the night before.

Where shall I park?
As a small rural village, parking is quite tight in the village so wherever you park, please park respectfully.  We do, however, have permission to use the carparks at the following locations:

  • Shingler Group Hillcrest Works, Myddle SY4 3SE (a short walk)
  • Red Lion, Myddle SY4 3RP (opposite the school)
  • Myddle Village Hall SY4 3RP (opposite the school)

If the weather permits we have permission from Castle Farm to use their field by the church.  Please DO NOT park in the staff carpark as this is needed for emergency access. We will have car parking volunteers on hand to assist.

Is there a bag drop?
No. If you leave your belongings on site you do so at your own risk.  We do not accept liability for theft or damage.

Will there be a warm-up?
Yes! Salop Korean Martial Arts will be leading a warm-up from 10.15am

What time does the race start?
The 5K and 10K races set off together at 10.30.  The 1 Mile Fun Run will set off approximately 10.40am once the 10K runners have passed the 1K point and the Marshalls have repositioned.

Is there anything for the spectators to do while they wait?
Yes! For a donation you can eat homemade cakes provided by parents, Pipers Café and Social Icing, and have hot and cold drinks. There are activities for the children led by Myddle Youth Club and Little Angels of Myddle for a small charge. Please bring cash for donations.

Are there any toilets on site?
Yes, but be warned they are very small child size toilets!

Is there First Aid on site?
Yes! We have a First Aid Tent for minor injuries which is also the location of our ‘Lost Children’.

Is there an official photographer?
No, sadly we do not have an official photographer this year, however feel free to share your photographs on the Myddle Muddlers Facebook Group, or hashtag #myddlemuddle on Insta!
