Huge congratulations to all the participants who took on our Festive Muddy Madness in support of The Lord Mayor of Bristol’s Children Appeal which raises money to help Bristol’s poorest children at Christmas through vouchers for food, clothing and gifts. It was an EPIC day, very cold but sunny, the wonderful Lord Mayor of Bristol attended and kindly started the races and even Santa surprised the children!
Thank you to all for your support and being so incredibly enthusiastic. Click here to see the results of the race.
“I just wanted to say how much both our kids loved Muddy Madness. Holly was SO pleased to be able to wade through streams and slip over in mud. She enjoyed every second of her 1 hour, 9 minutes and 41 seconds on the course and wants to come back and do it all over again. I also wanted to say a big thank you to your lovely marshals who looked after Sam’s favourite hat and kept it safe and who went and found my two 9 year olds (Holly and her friend Arthur) who were trailing behind at the back and encouraged them through the last few obstacles. They were so patient and good humoured. My favourite comment came from Holly when she was climbing up the muddy bank out of the stream. The marshal, who had waded through the stream with her, offered her a helping hand. With a huge grin on her face she said ‘NO, I can DO it by myself!’. Afterwards I watched him pour the water out of his wellies, but he was still smiling.”
