Tech softball team gets dirty for a cause in 2013 mud run

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Mud, mud, and more mud highlighted the Tennessee Tech softball team’s Saturday morning, as the Golden Eagles participated in the annual Habitat for Humanity Mud Run at Cane Creek Park.  The 5k race featured a variety of challenging obstacles, capped off with the chance to get down and dirty in a swim across the lengthy mud pit. 

The Cookeville community showed up in full force at Cane Creek Park, as hundreds of participants took their shot at the grueling course. The softball team split into four teams, standing out amongst the droves of people with their unique costumes that included ninja turtles and superheroes. 

The race itself saw children as young as 13 participate, as well as a number of Tech alums and current staff members.
