Get Caked will take place on Saturday April 25 at Sledmere House and features a five-mile course of wet and muddy fun as participants climb over, jump through, crawl under and run across natural and man-made obstacles.

Ben Redfern, event fundraiser at Saint Catherine’s, said: “As the name suggests, you will get muddy! So be prepared for a fun, memorable day – and a great way to raise much-needed funds for patient care at Saint Catherine’s.”

Registration costs £25 and participants are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £40. Entrants need to be aged 15 or over - 15, 16 and 17-year-olds must be accompanied by a paying adult.
