A spectacle in which 5,000 runners will tackle a muddy assault course watched by 5,000 spectators will take place at Newark Showground in June.

Airfield Anarchy takes place on June 13 and 14 in support of the RAF Benevolent Fund. The runners will take on gruelling, muddy terrain as well as 100 challenging obstacles including walls, monkey bars and rope swings at the former wartime airbase.

As well as the tough mud run there will be three stages for more than 30 live bands, a battle re-enactment, a bar, hot roast, live music and DJ after-party, challenges and spot prizes, hot tubs, a VIP area, a fireworks display, a kids adventure club, weeekend camping and much more.

Grantham air cadets 47F Squadron will help with the marshalling of the event over the weekend and will also run the course as part of their own private event on the Sunday.

Event director Greg Goodall said: “This event is run for charity, the RAF Benevolent Fund, which is a cause close to many hearts in the region due to the heavy RAF presence. Many of our competitors are serving RAF personnel, or families and friends. We also have a great deal of wounded service people and charitable beneficiaries taking part.”

Tickets for the festival cost £35 and for the festival and run combined they cost £75 (5K), £85 (10K), £95 (10 mile) or £130 for all three distances combined. There is a discount for teams of four or more. There is also a 5k junior race for ages 12 to 15 costing £25.
