Enthusiastic participants gathered at the Estevan Exhibition grounds on Saturday morning to take part in the Dirty Dozen Mud Run, held as a part of the 2017 Rodeo.
"It's a 5K course with 12 different obstacles. These vary from wall climbing, to the mud pit, to the slip 'n slide and rope climbing," explained Chairperson Jesse Mantei.
"We had 69 people register this year, so that was great. That's up from last year. They range from as young as 8 to as old as in their 60's, so it's kind of for everybody."
Among those who got right into the course was Andrea Leatherdale.
"I didn't really have any expectations. I've never done a mud run before, so every time I got to a new obstacle I was like, 'Okay, this is good, I can do this!'."
"Personally, I liked the cold bath, getting all the mud off was my favorite one. And the slip 'n slide at the end was a lot of fun," she added.
