The inaugural event was held near JCB’s World HQ in Rocester, Staffordshire on Saturday 10 November.

JCB group human resources director Joanne McAdam said: “We are absolutely delighted at the amount of money raised by the first-ever JCB Mud Run. Every single pound raised will go towards helping improve the lives of children in Staffordshire. I’d like to say a big thank you to all our sponsors and to every competitor who has supported the event and made it such a great success.”

The NSPCC is JCB’s nominated charity. Specifically, it supportsCarole House, a specialist NSPCC Centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme, named after company chairman Sir Anthony Bamford’s wife Carole, Lady Bamford.

JCB’s current appeal has broken through the £750,000 mark and Sir Anthony Bamford has pledged to double the appeal total once the £1m target has been reached.
