Tough Mudder 5K

Badminton Estate – 22nd August

This summer, get outside, and take part in a completely different kind of challenge! Grit and determination at the ready – prepare to get muddy, have fun, and raise funds for women and girls in Lawra!

We have 10 spaces in the notorious Tough Mudder 5K race. 5 Kilometres of Tough Mudder’s famous teamwork inspired obstacles and mud, Tough Mudder 5K is your chance to really stretch your limits.

With no timing chips or podiums, the only thing you need to worry about is convincing your friends to be there beside you. Anyone is capable of conquering Tough Mudder 5K, as long as you have the courage to step up to the start line.

ATE will pay for your entry, which includes a finisher headband, t-shirt, and a well earned drink for afterwards! With a fundraising target of £200 per person, we will support you throughout the process and connect you with a fab team. We are specifically looking for an all women and girls team, to raise money for our women and girls in Lawra. To signup, fill in the form and we’ll be in touch!
