Do you like escape rooms? Do you like running? Then DeadDrop Events may be just what you have been looking for...
It's family-friendly, so you can get your nearest and dearest together or pick your best bunch of mates (Mudstacle family) and form your team. From the moment you begin a DeadDrop Event you’ll be immersed in a hidden world of spies and challenges. This all happens in the centre of London (in and around Hyde Park) or Birmingham (in and around the Bullring), so as tourists, shoppers and businessmen get on with daily life in the city, you’ll be discreetly competing team against team to find secret agents and complete challenges.
This years innaugural event, The Chocolate run will end in the Easter Bunny's secret location. This can only discovered by completing the clues and challenges laid out for you. Once there you can claim your medals, compare your day with others participants, enjoy a soft drink or beer and of course claim your chocolate.
The Chocolate Run is the first event of the year and is entirely family orientated. The family option is a 2-5k route (you will make your own course so there's no set route) or there’s a 6-10k option if you prefer to cover some miles. You will be given a race pack and a code for your smartphone which kicks off your challenge.
To reach the end zone you will have to follow the clues and complete the tasks to earn points. You’ll earn extra points for candidly snapping photos of other teams but must avoid being ‘papped’ yourself! The prizes are awarded for points collected not pace completed, so walk, jog or run your way to the finish.
“At DeadDrop, we believe that being active outdoors should be fun and accessible to all” says Founder Alastair Clark. “By removing one of the biggest obstacles to exercise, which is boredom and motivation, we’ve created a truly unique way to spend rewarding time outdoors with the family. And what’s more important at Easter than time well-spent with the family and friends?”

We will be making an appearance at the Chocolate Run in Hyde Park and it would be great to see some other Mudstacle teams involved, though with all the yellow we may be spotted easily by the other teams paparazzi. There is even a cheeky discount for all of you in the members area.
