Hundreds of Lincoln runners got a little dirty Saturday afternoon.
"It was fun, we went down a slide and there was soap at the end, but some of it went in my mouth," Kearney runner, Hunter Pokorney, said.
It's all part of Nebraska's original mud run. Runners of all abilities took their chances at 1, 3 and 6 mile courses at the Lancaster Event Center.
Different obstacles included balance beams, a crazy maze and a giant mud slide.
"The obstacles this year were fantastic, there was actually a little boy running, carrying one of his shoes because he lost in the mud, so that was awesome," Beth Pringle, one runner, said.
"My pants were so heavy, had a hard time just keeping them up," runner, Dan Pokorney, said.
There were plenty of outdoor shower stations after the run was over. And the muddy shoes could be dropped off in a bin for a donation to Green Sneakers, an organization that provides shoes throughout the world to people in need.
