The Man Up UK’s Mud Run is quite simple. Take unforgiving land, idyllic scenery, an abundance of natural obstacles, with a few extra man made challenges. Put all of these ingredients together and we have an action packed course suitable for all. (with a bit of training!)

The Really Muddy Weekend is ideal for all. Whether you’re a group of friends, a touring sports team, a family day out, a work related team building session or as a charity fundraiser. It really can hit all the buttons.

The Mud Runs will be the main attraction but the weekend could be much more. Why not make the most of it and use the opportunity for a camping or Bunkhouse stay at this magnificent location? Celtic Camping is literally on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path overlooking Abereiddy Bay. A great place for a relaxing or adventure break.

May Mud Runs routes

A 5 mile cross country run that will see you enter the sea up to waist height as you touch the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and take the plunge into the many ponds, go under the logs, in the bogs, and climb the nettle net! Go through the tunnel of not much love, up the tramalator, through the extreme stream and face whatever else may be put in front of you.

An obstacle filled action packed 5 miles, which can be raced or trotted around with a group of friends, ideal for hen/stag groups, team building or charity teams.

The obstacles are mainly all natural, and the man made ones are designed to blend in to the rural environment. The main thing to remember in your preparation is that the obstacles are not technical so you should be able to manage them all. However if you do not fancy any particular obstacle there is always an option to pass on it!

A 3k mud run experience for 4 to 15 year olds. This is a great way to get the kids out onto the land to have some fun whilst challenging themselves as they run, crawl and climb their way around the Man-Up in the Mud course. The course will be safe and parents/guardians will be able to walk around the course with the kids where there will be some great photo opportunities.

These events are fun, but they are also demanding. You will need a good level of fitness and mental attitude to complete it. As well as aerobic fitness, you will also need a bit of upper body strength and be prepared for the conditions. Training should include a program, which sees you prepare for the task in hand.

FAQs
How fit do you have to be?

We don’t mind if you walk or run the course but you have to be fit enough to cover 5 miles cross country, whilst climbing under and over obstacles and wading through mud and ponds. It is tough but achievable!

What are the obstacles?

The obstacles are mainly all natural, and the man made ones are designed to blend in to the rural environment. The main thing to remember in your preparation is that the obstacles are not technical so you should be able to manage them all. However if you do not fancy any particular obstacle there is always an option to pass on it!

What training should I do?

As with anything you should train for what you are going to be doing, therefore we strongly recommend you should incorporate the following into your training plans; Cross Country Running, some strength training and cold water/muddy bog training to acclimatise. You do not want the day of the event to be your first experience of the Mud and Cold! For further tips and plans please contact us.

What is the difference between The May Run and The December Run?

Well the obvious is the temperatures! But don’t let that fool you we have had mild December Runs and Cold May Runs, it doesn’t matter which one you sign up for you have to be prepared for inclement weather and the ponds will be chilly whatever the month. But as a rule you can expect the December course to be Wetter, Muddier and colder. The May one is a little bit longer, a bit more climbing and more chance of getting nettle stings

How do we prepare for the cold?

We have had hypothermia cases at our mud run events and the vast majority of these have come about once runners have crossed the line. We recommend that you train for the cold but also have a finishing plan, of having loose fitting warm clothing, towel, hat and gloves to wear and easy to hand. For further details please ask.
