Thank you for taking part in Messathon 2018! You and your little ones scrambled and crawled - it was a messy event for all.

Welcome to Messathon - messy, muddy fun, for kids and big kids too.

Messathon is an event where you can the family together, get sponsored, and get ready to make some messy memories. You and your little messathletes will splatter through mud, swoosh along the water slide and scramble over hay bales. And it’s all for a good cause. We've finished our events for 2018, but will be back with even more mess in 2019, so do check back soon for further details.

Call 0203 772 9720 or email us for more information.

Our corporate partner, Lidl, were at Messathon in the West Midlands in July. They offered:

  • a Lidl tea room where participants were able to create their very own scone, using a delicious range of fillings
  • a food truck for the extra hungry, where delicious dishes were be served throughout the day
  • a play zone for infants who were not be quite big enough yet for the obstacle course
  • a clean up station
  • a clean-up zone with free detergent for you to take home.

What our Messathletes are saying...

"The kids loved every minute. The best event we've been to with them in years!"

"Having children from 6 to teenagers, this was a wonderful event for us all to do together. We laughed from beginning to end."

"It was the greatest fun for adults and children alike, so well organised and much larger than I was expecting."
