The Mendip Muddle is Weston Athletics Club's toughest race. Held over 20km (12 miles) of the finest Mendip Hills, the course is hilly (there’s 420m of climb) and set in some of the finest scenery in the West Country.
There are Roman lead mines, underground rivers, a nature reserve, open moorland, potholes, an ancient rabbit warren, an Iron Age fort and prehistoric tumuli. You will run past Velvet Bottom, Rhino Rift, Beacon Batch, Twin Brooks, Dolebury, Rowberrow Bottom, Tyning's, Black Down and Rains Batch. All but 2km of the course is off road and it can get a little boggy in places so make sure you bring your off road shoes.
