Hundreds of mud-hungry athletes raised more than £1,000 for charity as they took on the infamous Black Ditch.
The annual charity course organised by Quack Splat Go saw people swim through deep ditches, over obstacles, and through tunnels in a 6km obstacle course of thick mud near Woodbridge, Suffolk.
Each runner was offered a rubber duck at the start of the race with every duck that crossed the finish line leading to a 50p donation to Fresh Start New Beginnings, a charity that supports children who have suffered sexual abuse.
Martin Smith, 41, an operations manager at Ideal Choice, braved the mud along with two of his co-workers.
He said: “It was brilliant, I’ve done a few Tough Mudder challenges before and I wasn’t sure what to expect from one that had been organised locally but it was on par with the ones I’ve done before
“I didn’t realise you could crawl through that much mud.”
