Maldon Mud Race

Flood water coming down the Rivers Chelmer and Blackwater into the Blackwater Estuary (part of the Thames Estuary) held up the tide today meaning that the annual Maldon Mud Race could not be run via the estuary crossings and came close to being cancelled. The safety sub-aqua divers were unable to keep their feet mid estuary and hence the race, with TRACie Jackie Lee, ended up being a shortened mud flats effort along the Maldon bank. Despite the heavy rain and strong winds around 250 competitors turned out for the annual charity run and in true British style, the humour and spirits were second to none........as were the many mankinis and the such like on display..........
