NHS Go Nuclear

July 11 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm





Raising money for Mid & South Essex Hospital Charity, helping to enhance the patient experience across our trust, the #NHSGONUCLEAR 5k mud run is back for a second year.

5k of outrageous obstacles, mountains of mud, zinging zip wires, and the world’s only 20ft deathslide into a lake!

The event, held at Nuclear Races in Kelvedon Hatch, was inspired by personal trainer and Nuclear Races employee Laura Roberts whose son Oscar was treated for leukaemia at Broomfield Hospital.

“Oscar was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2014 and Broomfield was our shared care hospital with Great Ormond Street. They were brilliant. He finished chemo two years ago but we’re still under Broomfield and go back every six months. I like to raise money for them because it’s a really good hospital.”

If like Laura you would like to say thank you to your local hospital for care received by yourself or a loved one, register for the event today by clicking here.

Raising funds for your chosen cause

You can choose where you would like your money to go, each department/ward at the three hospitals has its own fund, so whether it’s the cancer care unit at Southend, Polly Parrott appeal at Basildon or the burns department at Broomfield, all donations are donor lead.

The best way to raise funds for your chosen charity is via Just Giving

What time do I need to be there? Please arrive at 1pm, ready for a 1:30pm 

Do you need to be really fit to take part?  No. The event is all about having fun. How seriously you take it is up to you. There’ll be a bit of climbing, some mud and a bit of cold water. As long as you don’t mind a bit of mess, you’ll love it.

I’ll be muddy and sweaty. Will there be showers afterward? Yes, hot outdoor wash down showers will be available. (You are still likely to need a proper shower once your home).

Should I invite my family and friends to watch? We’re really sorry but no, please don’t. Spectators are not allowed around the course.

Is there parking? Yes, on-site right next to the event and it’s free!

This event sounds brilliant. I’m going to sign up. That’s the attitude!
