The 17th annual Marine Corp Mud Run was held Saturday at Greenhill Park in Roanoke County. Over nineteen hundred participants ran the three mile course that finished with a full body plunge through the specially prepared mud pits.

Friends and family cheered the runners on as they made their way to the finish line for obligatory pictures and a soon to follow rinsing.

The run honors military veterans and is a fundraiser for Toys For Tots.
