Runners dash through mud for charity | News
A race that became popular for many runners last year expanded, and sparked the interests of people who like to have fun, and don't mind getting dirty in the process.
Thousands of people attended the Mud Run at the Hephzibah Children's Home, Saturday morning.
Director Kyle Muir says the race became their biggest fundraiser last year.
Muir says the positive response from participants encouraged them to dig more mud pits, and make the race more challenging.
This year runners had to cross 106 mud pits, and over 20 obstacles.
" That's never been done in the industry. So, we said yeah let's do it. We're gonna need a little more time, but let's make it happen," said Muir.
Will Acosta said, "It's a blast. Last year, especially when we hit that pond, it kind of put us in shock there for a minute. But getting out there... it's unbelievable."
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Hephzibah Children's Home.
