Team Electra's Mud Monsters’s story

A team of 12 Electrons will be taking part in this years Mud Monsters Race, 10km course in the West Sussex countryside. Mud Monsters Run is an award winning mud and obstacle race where we will be going across muddy fields, up steep hills, through woods, washing ourselves off in river crossings, navigating through mud pits, fighting our way through deep muddy bogs and obstacles .


We will be raising money for a local Brighton charity – Pedal People.


Pedal People is an awesome charity based locally in Brighton where volunteer cycle pilots ride out together with elder care homes residents – so they can feel the wind in their hair! Many elders rarely have the chance to enjoy an outdoor adventure otherwise. Their special ‘Trishaws’ (three-wheel cycles with passenger cab up front) enable them to experience our city and nature close-up and chat with passers-by. All riding the bikes enjoy the physical and mental well-being benefits. They are renowned for their balanced gender ratio of cycle pilots. Around 75% of our passengers are living with dementia.  Rides are comfortable, fun, fully insured and free to elders. As a small, local Brighton charity, they run several rides a day from elder care homes, year-round.


What makes it special and why it makes a difference:  It’s an extraordinary thing cycling with elders. Their rides bring care home residents ‘back into view’. Smiles galore, see spirits lifted, people report feeling awake again, delighted, less anxious or depressed as well as sleeping better after rides out.


We will be putting ourselves through an 8 weeks training programme with a PT in preparation of getting very muddy indeed, please support us in anyway you can :) Thank you very much - Love from Electra's Mud Monsters!


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
