Following the success of last years races Radox has today announced dates of four Mud Runs around the UK. TV star Debra is supporting the events, and was getting into the spirit of things today by getting muddy and encouraging people to sign up for the runs. Debra said: “I am delighted to be launching the Radox Great British Mud Runs and encouraging people to take part to raise as much money as possible for the British Heat Foundation (BHF) and make themselves feel better. As a Mum, I am always looking for fun family activities that involve being outside in the open and these runs are perfect for the children who love to get a bit muddy in the process.” Debra will be starting the first race in London’s Hackney Marshes on the 6th October. The races then take place throughout the country, at Warwick Castle in Warwick on the 13th October, Heaton Park in Manchester on the 20th October and Stanmer Park in Brighton on the 27th October. Launched by Radox and the BHF in 2006, the 5K Great British Mud Runs help encourage families to exercise together and help people feel better. Participants will not only be raising money to help the hearts of the nation, but will also get to exercise their own heart by participating. The Radox Great British Mud Runs are set to be fun for everyone, ideal for families, social groups or for those going solo. The BHF is the nation’s heart charity, and relies on vital donations to help fund pioneering research that saves and improves the lives of vulnerable men, women and children who suffer from heart disease across the UK. Every two minutes someone has a heart attack and about 3 out of 10 of these people will die before they get to hospital. This is why the BHF spends £100 a minute every day on vital heart research .
