Olympia Mud Race

One of the stranger photo-ops of the year, the annual Olympia Mud Race pits all clothing-optional comers in a dramatic, sloppy low-tide slog across Mud Bay’s mudflats. The race is traditionally held just before The Evergreen State College’s graduation. And the winner gets, well, the same thing as everyone else…muddy! See a slideshow here.

    Interesting. I live right in the area and didn't even know this contest existed. Wow, lots of body parts there. I'll bet the hose down afterward is a welcome thing.
