Firth Mud Run Results

Great work this weekend! Both boys and girls showed their toughness and groovy sense of style and fashion while swimming the moats and braving the sands at Sandy Downs. It was a's hard to tell if the brown chunks in your teeth are from the dirt and mud or from the pie that was snarfed on the bus. Full Results can be found HERE.

Photos soon to follow. See you Monday!
