Wading Through Poo!! Well That's A Bit S***!

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

Let me be clear, the title isn’t referring to the UK Tough Mudder that we all know and love. Instead a French equivalent of Tough Mudder decided to inadvertently make the course considerably tougher by allowing the competitors to run and wade through s***.

Yep, apparently more than 1000 people who took part in the Mud Run race became unwell, so unwell that they were losing their pre- race lunch from both ends! This is no joking matter though, the ‘mud’ that they were wading through was contaminated with animal excrement which bred a bacteria that was similar to that of salmonella!

The organisers of the race are investigating this thoroughly, so let’s just hope that the organisers of our extreme outdoor events are a little more attentive when differentiating between mud and s***.
