They turned out in their hundreds to get down and dirty.
And the thrill-seekers who tackled extreme obstacles and covered themselves in filth to raise money for Kirkwood Hospice may have raised £10,000.
The fearless challengers of all ages tackled a series of daunting obstacles at the T3 Farm Challenge, an extreme 5k course organised to raise money for the Dalton-based Hospice.
The event, now in its second year, saw brave runners climbing enormous tyre mounds, swimming through ice cold water and diving, head first, down water drenched slides at Crossley Farm in Mirfield.
Ticket sales for the T3 Farm Challenge proved hugely popular, with early bird tickets selling out in a matter of hours. And with the inclusion of a course for younger participants for the first time, the event attracted over 200 participants.
Those taking part were also treated to an evening of fantastic entertainment at a special after party, with performances from local singer Kelly Aitcheson, band The Bondurants and performance from dance troupe SL Academy. Local businesses also got involved, with attractions as diverse as face painting and Caribbean food adding to the incredible party atmosphere.
The event proved so successful that event organisers hope to have raised around £10,000 for the Hospice, which will help to support vital services for people facing life limiting illnesses across Kirklees.
Friends Danny Thomas , James Ashton, Katie Ellis and Sarah Brooks decided to create the challenging and exciting event for the local community that would bring people together to raise money for a worthy cause.
As regular supporters of Kirkwood, the Hospice was the obvious choice for Katie and Sarah, who are members at the T3 Fitness and Wellbeing Centre in Batley, owned by Danny and James.
Danny said: “The day was a whirlwind of activity for us all and turned out to be remarkable.
“It was a tremendous success and we are absolutely delighted. We are already looking forward to planning for next year.”
Farm owner Michael Barber said: “We are all really proud to be involved in the T3 Farm Challenge and to be supporting Kirkwood Hospice. Hopefully the event continues to grow as the years go by.”
