The Welly Wednesday course is approximately 2.5km. It is not a race and is a non- competitive, non-timed event. Participants can walk, jog or run and bypass obstacles if necessary. Please ensure that you wear the correct sized welly boots!

Participants aged 16 years and under must take part alongside a paying adult and be accompanied throughout the event. School and youth groups who take part must have adequate supervision. Upon running through the inflatables, all children must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for their safety.

On no account is alcohol to be brought into the event site or consumed during the event. St Elizabeth Hospice reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone under the influence of alcohol.

Is the route wheelchair and buggy friendly?

Unfortunately the route is not suitable to wheelchair users, nor is it buggy friendly – this is due to the inflatable obstacles on route.
