An obstacle course through icy water and thick mud is returning to the North-east, creating chances for charity fundraising.
Mud Madness will welcome runners of all ages to its second annual event on May 8.
Hardy runners will battle through 5km of mud and water, clambering over obstacles and squeezing through tunnels.
The course at Lochter Activity Centre, near Inverurie, was unveiled last year and saw hundreds trudge through the mud for charities including CLAN and Marie Curie.
Carolyn Snedden works for Marie Curie as the regional fundraising manager for the North-east.
She and her colleagues braved the course at last year’s event to raise awareness for the charity’s work and she is delighted that Mud Madness has returned.
She said: “We wanted to do something for the charity and put a team together.
“I think these days to get sponsored, people want you to do something a bit crazy – and this is one of those things, so I’m pleased it’s back.” Carolyn added: “Once you hit the water you get a shock, but then you just get on with it, and it’s just really good fun – for all abilities.
“And of course it allows people to raise money for charity, which is so important.”
