I went out to the Motukarara Race Course this morning with my photo club, to photograph the Mud Sweat and Tears cross country race. It’s a 5 or 10 km race and as you can see competitors are encouraged to dress up in costume and get as wet and as muddy as they possibly can (the fact that the organisers hose them down and make them slide down a hill into a muddy paddock certainly helps with the later!). Some of the runners made it look very easy!
So the aliens have landed and they like cross country!
As any ballet girl will remember, it’s important to maintain good posture and deportment even if one is covered in mud!
Well done to all the runners I am in awe of you!
