Customs and Traditions - Maldon Mud Race
Competitors take part in the annual Maldon Mud Race in Maldon, Essex. Dozens of competitors skidded and slid through slimy black mud and ice cold water in the annual race from one bank of a river to the other. The race, which started in 1973, is set on the River Blackwater in the historic town. Competitors set off at low tide from one bank and wade or swim through the waist high water to the other side.
