The Maldon Mud Race is an annual event in which competitors race to be the first to complete a 400 metre dash over over the bed of the River Blackwater

The race can only take place at low tide when the water is low enough to allow participants to run safely through the water to the opposite bank and back again

This famous event was originally held at the end of December but extremely cold weather in 2010 caused it to be postponed until the following spring. This change of date was such a great success with over 12,000 spectators that the organisers decided to make the change permanent.

The 2017 Maldon Mud Race is planned to take place on Sunday May 7 in Promenade Park Maldon CM9 5JQ.
