Default Not exactly clear as mud!

Runners trawl up to their necks through ditches and race through woodland for annual 10K Muddy Trials

Gruelling event took place over the weekend in the beautiful grounds of Craufurdland Castle in Scotland
Runners are advised to tape their shoes to their feet with industrial gaffer tape to stop them coming off
Racers cross fields and woodland, ford streams before plunging waist deep through dark gooey ditches

DD#2 goes on tough mudders and warrior dashes, and comes out looking like that. Cold, heat, bugs, dirt in your eyes... that be one of those "would you do it for a million dollars?" things for me.

A local group, Living History Farms, has a mud run each year. That's how they end up looking too.
