The Pretty Muddy grubby challenge was held at Trinity Park near Ipswich yesterday as part Cancer Research UK’s much-loved Race for Life series.

For the first time ever the charity hosted a children’s edition, as well as its well established women-only event.

In total, 640 under 12s took on Pretty Muddy Kids, which involved scramble nets, space hoppers, mud chutes and muddy pools.

The adult version attracted 1,540 fearless females.
