Sheffield Pretty Muddy 5K: Poignant messages as runners take on charity obstacle course at Graves Park
and live on Freeview channel 276
Participants had great fun scrambling over the giant inflatables and crawling through the mud pit during the Race for Life event in Graves Park yesterday, Saturday, June 11.
Amid the sea of pink were some touching messages attached to the vibrant outfits, describing people’s very personal motivation for taking part and raising much-needed funds for life-saving research.
They included these words on the backs of two of the youngest runners: “I race for my Nannie. She was the best nannie in the world.”
Saturday’s Pretty Muddy event took place the day before more pink-clad crowds descended on Graves Park today, Sunday, June 12, for the traditional Race for Life runs, with the option of taking on a 3km, 5km or 10km course.
