As the UK’s largest music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins is dedicated to breaking down barriers through the power of music. Its trained music therapists work with children and adults affected by life limiting illness such as dementia, learning disabilities including Autism, physical disability and mental health issues. Connecting with some of the most isolated people in our society, Nordoff Robbins music therapists work with over 315 schools, hospitals, hospices and care homes, as well as providing sessions from the charity’s centres across the UK.

The 2022 edition of Music Mudder raised over £55,000 for the charity. Jelle Schotanus, competing on the UROK team, completed the seven kilometre course in the fastest time of 52 minutes and 18 seconds. Atlantic Records took home the prize for the fastest team with an average time of one hour, six minutes and seven seconds.

Sandy Trappitt, Head of Partnerships at Nordoff Robbins, says, 'We’re so excited to be putting on Music Mudder in partnership with our friends at Wasserman Music for the third time. It was fantastic to see so many familiar albeit muddy faces on the course in 2022 and this year we want to go even bigger and muddier, aiming to double the number of teams taking part. All funds raised will go directly towards providing music therapy across the UK, helping people to connect and communicate through the power of music.'

Lucy Putman, Agent, Wasserman Music, says, 'Music Mudder is a great opportunity for colleagues from across the music industry to hang out, beat the post-festival season blues, get muddy and raise money, with a little friendly competition thrown in for good measure. We raised over £55,000 for Nordoff Robbins last year, which is an incredible achievement, but we’re hoping to smash that total in 2023. Sign up now and join us for some more mud, sweat and cheers, all for a hugely worthy cause.'
