ENTRANTS of all ages made quite the splash as they stormed their way round the messy obstacles of Race for Life’s pretty muddy.

The popular event returned to Baiter Park on Saturday afternoon with separate races for adults across a five kilometre route and shorter course for children.

Following a music-inspired warm-up participants tackled the course, which included conquering the A-frame ropes and bundling over the inflatables before swooping into the pool of mud.

The traditional Race for Life distance running events return to the conurbation next month with events throughout the day along the seafront in Bournemouth on Sunday, June 12, setting off from Pier Approach.
