As part of the Muddy Monsters Beds and Herts series, Muddy Monsters events are designed for novices aged Under 14. Entrants should not be competing regularly in regional cyclo-cross or mountain bike series events. The events are off-road and suitable for mountain bikes or cyclo-cross bikes.

There may be a few spot prizes on the day but most of the awards are given for the overall series.

Please arrive at least half an hour early to sign-on, warm-up, practice the course and collect your race number.
