Dads and children at the start of the Mud Run50 or so dads and children enjoyed a beautiful day at Eastnor Castle last Sunday, the sunshine and views only affected by the need to run 5km and get covered in mud. It was a day to remember though – particularly for those who camped the previous evening and made a festival out of it. We made a striking impact with our (now not so) brilliant-white T-shirts (our thanks for sponsoring which go to Helyx SIS Ltd). And out of over 1300 runners, our large team performed well, with one of our number even winning the prize for the fastest 7yr-old. While some competed hard, others found their mission in ensuring their fellow team mates came back the muddiest. Congratulations to everyone who completed the challenge and well done to those children who proved they’re faster than their dads. We’ll trip you up next time. Enjoy browsing this great set of photos of the day.
