2015 Pig Trail Mud Run


Cooper Claussen, 9, of Springdale laughs Saturday, May 30, 2015, as he crawls through mud during the annual Pig Trail Mud Run at the Ecclesia College campus in Elm Springs. The event is a fundraiser for the Springdale Rotary Club.

Years ago, when I was a runner, I did everything I could to avoid mud. Nowadays, people pay quite a lot for the privilege to run through it. As odd as it sounds, it looked like a lot of fun, though I was glad when I got into my car to leave that I wasn’t covered in mud for the ride home.
