MUD glorious mud was the name of the game at Ragley Hall at the weekend.
Some 1,700 people got down and dirty at the stately home near Alcester in aid of the Royal British Legion.
Mud crawls, cargo nets and a vanishing bridge were among the obstacles faced by competitors, over 10km and 5km distances, in the The Royal British Legion Major Series, hosted by British Military Fitness.
With the Legion aiming to raise £250,000 in 2016, the series is helping the charity to continue providing vital support to former and currently serving military personnel and their families.
Events manager Michaela Brice said: “It was fantastic to see so many muddy faces crossing the finish line.
“It’s great to see more and more people getting the confidence to try events such as ours.
“This year we have enhanced the event, using special effects to bring our new military zones to life, ensuring that The Royal British Legion Major Series is truly an event like no other.”
