(HARWICH, ON) – Participants were mucking around at Mudmoiselle in Chatham on Saturday all in a good cause. Tasked with climbing, crawling, and otherwise negotiating a 5km obstacle course, the goal was to have fun while raising funds for cancer research.

Billed as, “where your inner child runs free while testing your strength and determination,” the event was held at CM Wilson Conservation Area in Chatham. Heats began at 9:00am and teams continued all day through the 80 degree weather.
