Over the last winter I’ve become fairly experienced at dealing with mud on runs, but a foray into obstacle course racing in Fife would quickly prove that there are in fact muddier places than the Campsies in January. The course was arranged mostly through woods and a field next to Knockhill race course outside Dunfermline. The weather was good, though a bit chilly (it was a good few degrees cooler than when I left Glasgow), and it had been dry for a couple of weeks. The organisers had ensured that there was mud however, thanks to the presence of a fire engine which had liberally soaked the area.

The course had a whole range of obstacles, from flooded pipes, to thigh-deep mud, to piles of tyres. All in all good fun.
