Race for Life and Pretty

Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children - to join the Race for Life. These events are for people of all ages and abilities taking place at Westpoint Exeter on 18 - 19 June 2022


Race for Life Pretty Muddy is Cancer Research UK's brilliant 5k muddy obstacle course and is taking place at Westpoint Exeter on Saturday 18 June. Scramble over the A-frame. Crawl through the mud pit. Have fun with your friends and raise valuable funds for life-saving research.

Pretty Muddy isn’t like any other fundraising event. It’s a muddy obstacle course that everyone (age 13 and over), no matter their ability, can JOIN IN AND HAVE FUN!

Pretty Muddy events are in waves, each starting 15 minutes apart to make sure everyone on the course is safe. If you enter as a group, make sure you all enter the same wave as you cannot move waves once you’ve signed up.


A Race for Life 5k takes about an hour to complete, and the 10k most people taking part will finish within two hours, but remember - Race for Life events are non-competitive, so you can take as long as you like, there's absolutely no pressure to finish in a certain time. It's about uniting in the fight against cancer - no matter what your pace. One of the best ways to have fun and raise money for Race for Life is to get together as a group.
