14 June 2015 – Willows Muddy Runner 10k

Another event with the ladies from the livery yard.  This one in aid of charity Willows Foundation.  Never done an obstacle course before and had no real idea what to expect.

Wet and mucky are 2 good words to describe the event.  Not really about speed as there was quite a bit of waiting around for other folks to unstick themselves from the mud, but it was huge amounts of fun.  I think the best obstacle was the water slide, literally a long piece of plastic with soapy water running down it – onto which we all threw ourselves head first and screamed like mad women as we spilled onto the grass. The worst one was the steel container (as you see on ships) that we had to clamber up onto (aided by a marshal) and swing off the other side.  I really hurt my ribs on that but didn’t spoil the fun.

We washed ourselves by rolling around in the long wet grass before changing into clean dry (old) clothes and drove home a bit smelly but very happy.
