Children can now take part in one of Suffolk's fun, muddy obstacle courses - thanks to construction of a new junior and family course.
The Piglet, Junior Hog is an entry-level version of the popular Whole Hog and Boss Hog events that have been firm fixtures in the calendar at Wantisden Hall, near Woodbridge, for over 10 years.
It is aimed at those wanting to take part with their children or those who would like to run a shorter route, and will benefit East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
Taylor Wimpey East Anglia is sponsoring the Piglet, Junior Hog and its staff tried out some of the cargo nets, tunnels and water those taking part will be scrambling through.
The Piglet, Junior Hog takes place on Sunday, June 9 with two courses for runners: 2km for with at least 10 obstacles for children aged eight to 11 accompanied by a participating adult, and 4km and at least 20 obstacles for 12s and over.
Runners will set off in waves at 9.30am, 10am, 10.30am, 11am and 11.30am. Tickets range in price from £12.50 to £17.50. Everyone will receive a medal at the end. There will be food and refreshments available.

Caroline Carter, Taylor Wimpey East Anglia Sales and Marketing Director, said: "EACH is a fantastic charity and we're delighted to be able to continue to offer our support by sponsoring the Piglet, Junior Hog event. Our work across East Anglia brings us into contact with many families who may one day benefit from the care and compassion shown by the charity's staff and volunteers.

"We at Taylor Wimpey are all big supporters of the work EACH carries out across our region and without them hundreds of children and young people would struggle to get the care they need. We're looking forward to the event and hope the participants raise plenty of money for EACH."
Victoria Matthews, EACH Suffolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: "Taylor Wimpey's a great supporter of EACH and raised over £20,000 last year, so it was nice to offer them this fun-filled and very muddy opportunity! Everyone seemed to enjoy it and I'm sure the event in June is going to be fantastic."
