‘Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
And there we shall wallow in glorious mud’
This was the perfect event for kids … plenty of mud, water, green fields to run across oh and did I mention there was mud? Mud Kids Dorking
As the name suggested this was a muddy event for children and was very well organised and safe for the kids with all the obstacles just taxing enough without being too daunting.
It said the course was 3k but it certainly didn’t feel like it as the kids sped around with ease. Nodge even thought about doing a second round which was perfectly acceptable … although I bailed in favour of a well earned g&t at a lovely little pub called The Compasses Inn in Gomshall. There was a great picnic area and kids play although being next to a shallow stream, the children didn’t even notice the swings and slides. They were too busy finding ‘lobster’ and other creatures of the deep!
It was a fantastic day out and certainly worth doing.
Big thanks to the organisers, supporters and marshals. Oh – and if you do plan to enter … don’t forget to take a picnic blanket and picnic – there is tonnes of space to enjoy the day.
We will see you on the 23rd September for sure!
