Hundreds of racers from across Nova Scotia splashed, swam and charged through the dirt at Debert Airfield on Sept. 8.
Racing teams ran down dusty trails, balanced precariously over pools of muddy water, braved climbing obstacles and plunged down a slide into the dirtiest pool of them all at the annual Mud Hero Nova Scotia races.
Contestants enjoyed a chance to be kids again, splashing through the mud in either a six or 10 km course. This race was billed as the only one of its kind east of Alberta.
After the races ended and everyone had cleaned themselves off, contestants enjoyed an afterparty.
