What is the event?

The event is a 3k muddy family-friendly obstacle course, hosted by our friends at Clarty Bairns. There are a variety of obstacles that involve climbing, crawling, scrambling, getting wet and, of course, getting muddy! On Saturday 13th July 2024 the event is FREE to families directly affected by childhood cancer in the North East and Cumbria.

Who is it for?

We are offering this free Family Fun Day to families, siblings and children directly affected by childhood cancer to have some fun together.

The event is open to any families who have been affected by childhood cancer, either in the past, or who have children that are currently undergoing treatment and able to participate.

Come along and meet other families, as well as the staff and trustees of Children’s Cancer North.

What we are offering

Take part in the obstacle course for free

The course is suitable for those aged 5 to 80 and you can easily skip obstacles if you wish. We suggest you wear old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and you might want to bring some spare warm ones for afterwards as you'll be getting wet and muddy! You can register both participants and spectators on the registration form.

Meet other families

As well as taking part in the obstacle course, or for those not participating, there will be a space within the woods to have some refreshments and have the opportunity to meet other families that have been through similar experiences.

Meet the team

Come along and meet some of the staff and trustees of Children's Cancer North. It will be a lovely occasion for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us!
