It's Northern Ireland muckiest event - and hundreds of you took part.

Adrenaline junkies of all ages, heights and sizes descended upon Foymore Lodge in Portadown at the weekend for the bi-annual McVitie's Jaffa Cakes Mud Madness.

At the start of the course it looked like any race with competitors decked out in their trainers raring to go.

But this soon changed as over two days they ran through fields, climbed fences, crawled through tunnels while up to their knees in mud, all in the name of charity.

There were bogs and ponds to navigate around, alongside cargo nets, water sprays and muddy trenches.

Those taking part were raising vital funds for palliative care charity Marie Curie as Mud Madness continues to prove itself as one of Ireland's most popular and successful off-road obstacle courses.

Over the last ten years it has raised more than £150,000 for the charity.

And it wasn't just adults unleashed in the mud as on Saturday Mini Mud Madness returned to allow 6-16-year-olds the chance to get as mucky as they want/

On Sunday the main event took place along the 4.5km course where grown-ups kids in teams, groups and individuals took on the obstacles.
