Absolutely brilliant, amazing staff, very friendly and helpful. Dispite the strong winds, me and my 4 year daughter loved it! She wants to the next one in the summer and I think we definitely will. Thank you to all the lovely people taking part who cheered my little girl on and helped show her what to do as we went round. The course is brilliant for kids of all ages. (Including adults lol)

A very well organised event. one of the best we have done. Lots of obstacles and they were as much fun for the adults as they were for the kids! Alternatives to water obstacles are great idea. Parking and registration really easy, Marshall's were fantastic and overall brilliant value for money. We will be back!

Despite the freezing cold weather we had a brilliant time today and my kids loved it. A lot of thought went into the course and the Marshalls were excellent really cheering us on in our Incredibles costumes. Thanks a lot

we've now done quite a few OCR's both as a family and individually but this one is probably one of my favourites - ever! The course was really well thought out with a wide range of family friendly obstacles plus the opportunity for those not so keen on the water obstacles a chance to take an alternative (and not just a walk around, taking on actual obstacles too!). The organisers and the Marshall's were amazing and still smiling despite all the challenges they faced yesterday with the storm. Looking forward to the next one already.

Today I marshalled for Mini Military for the first time and had a great experience and will happily Marshall again. Myself and my daughter also ran today which was fantastic. Lots of challenging things for the kids ( and adults ) . The water slide was great that you don't just go off the end into the deep water and you had the canoe there to help anyone that needed it. A great all round experience today with Mini Military and we will definitely be back.

Brilliant experience. Joint birthday party for three 10 year olds with thirteen of their friends. What a Birthday experience. One they won't forget. And us adults had fun too!
Natalie Fairbairn, April 2019
What a great event, thank you! Lots of fun obstacles, very well organised (and importantly with kids, felt very safe) and challenging enough for the accompanying parents! There was a fair amount of queuing at obstacles, but I accept this is a factor of running a course aimed at children, which of course leads to the smaller ones taking longer and means greater need for health and safety measures. Really good value too keep up the good work!

We first experienced Mini Military Mud Run at The Elements last year and wanted to do it ever since but the 2.5 hour drive did put us off. So glad we made the drive up from the South Coast. It is THE best children's race. I have two children who are usually stuck with 2km races so I love that MMMR lets the parents decide what distance their children could manage. We all marshalled on the Saturday and were well looked after. On Sunday my 9 year old competed the 9k (11k?) and my 6 year old daughter, although desperate to do the 9k completed the 5k (7k?) They both had an absolute blast as did we. This is far from an adult race with a little kids option on the side and it showed from the quality and number of obstacles. We will absolutely be back in September and my son has the Mini Legends in sight. I just hope I can keep up! Highly recommend this race especially with the new 7k option there really is a distance for everyone.

Quite simply, the BEST obstacle race for kids in the country. Not only did the kids love it, but we had a great time too! The variety and quality of the obstacles are fantastic...they could quite easily put an adults race on and get good reviews.
We marshalled Sat and had a great time and were well looked after. Then raced on the Sunday and the kids loved it (despite the bad weather).
Its a fair drive for us but worth it for a weekend of fun!

Yesterday we completed the 9k run with 8 children youngest child being 5 and oldest being 15! each and everyone of us enjoyed it we got to the 5k mark and gave all the children a choice of finishing at 5k or carrying on to 9k everyone of them wanted to carry on to do the 9k because they was having so much fun! Thank you for such a good day!!

We did the rugby run yesterday and had a brilliant time! As 2 none runners with a 5 and 6 year old it was a bit daunting pulling up and seeing the obstacles (not knowing that the worst ones were hidden!!) but we all thoroughly enjoyed the day. My only complaint would be that there were certain obstacles with huge queues and whilst we didn’t mind the short waits (they were quite a welcome rest!) some queues were 10 minutes long which with small, soaking wet children isn’t ideal!
My daughter in particular really enjoyed the course and it has inspired her to not only do the run next year but also take up running as a hobby! Thank you for a great day

Yesterday was are first time doing the mini military mud run and I can safely say it won’t be our last! There was 9 of us (4 adults & 5 children) they loved it!! They are all very proud of theirselves! A very muddy yet Amazing day with my family! My girls are wanting to book for next year!!
Simon Hodge, August 2017
Excellent time with my two daughters aged 8 & 9, took 2 hours 20 mins to run 5k ( actually 4.1 mile ) through tunnels, over tyres, though mud, under cargo nets, through ponds and much much more. 1000’s of photos on Facebook to look through afterwards and found some superb photos of us. Thanks to all at Mini Military Mud Run for a fantastic day out ~ we shall be back soon.

After being involved for the last 3 yrs with the mini military mud run it has become part of my life. I definately would not stop helping out as it is just so much fun. Seeing the joy and happiness that it brings to the kids faces, oh and the adults too, is just sheer bliss. Here's to many more events over the years and soon harriett will be taking part. Thank you Military fitness for letting me be part of this fab family.

It is the 4th mud run I have done with my 8 year old son – he loves it! The obstacles are absolutely fab and change on every event. My son loves his medals and proudly wears his T and buff. Thanks all at mud runners
Steph Beesly, August 2016
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the awesome family mud run on Sunday! We all had an absolute ball 🙂 The obstacles were excellent – you’ve clearly worked on it really hard since last year, and come up with some great new ideas – thank you! We’re all loudly debating whether our favourite obstacle was the massive slide into the pond near the start, or the thick muddy tunnel towards the end! We loved it.
