New muddy obstacle course and run for Suffolk families

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has announced a brand new event coming to Suffolk this June, as the founders of the Whole Hog and Boss Hog launch the Piglet, Junior Hog!

The Piglet, Junior Hog will be an entry-level version of the popular obstacle courses and mud runs that have been part of the Suffolk calendar for over 10 years. It will be aimed at those who want to take part with their children, or those who would like to run a shorter route, and will benefit East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Sponsored by Taylor Wimpey, the event will take place on Sunday, 9 June on the lands of Wantisden Hall near Woodbridge, with two courses for runners.

One will be over two kilometres and feature at least 10 obstacles. Children aged eight to 11 can take part, provided each is accompanied by a participating adult.

The other will be over four kilometres and feature at least 20 obstacles. It will be open to anyone aged 12 and over.

Louisa Smart, EACH Suffolk Community Fundraiser, said: “Having been a charity partner of the Whole Hog for the last two years, we’re delighted the organisers’ support is going a step further this year.

“Families who come along to this are guaranteed of a muddy, fun-filled day out, with obstacles such as cargo nets, tunnels, rivers and monkey bars likely to feature.”

Runners will set off in waves at 9.30am, 10am, 10.30am, 11am and 11.30am. Tickets range in price from £12.50 to £17.50. Everyone will receive a medal at the end. There will also be food and refreshments available.
