Runners take on a circular route which heads out towards Barsby and Ashby Folville before returning.

They face several natural obstacles along the way to slow them down including a dew pond, drainage pipe, brook and the inevitable mud.

Entrants are asked to print out and complete the entry form, available from the race’s Facebook page, in advance and bring it along on race day with the £10 fee.

Pre-race registration takes place in the village hall from 9.30am.

Prizegiving will take place after the race, and refreshments will be available from the Cheney Arms.
