JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Boselli Mud Run takes place Saturday morning and with the rain the First Coast has been having, it should certainly live up to its name.
The event benefits the Tony Boselli Foundation. If you've never done or seen a mud run, watch the video above for a preview of how it works.
One thing the Tony Boselli Foundation does is teach kids to reach for their potential and never give up.
And while it is just a 5K muddy obstacle course, the Boselli Mud Run tests folks' limits to not give up when things get sloppy.
"It's fun to watch ... it's like a watching a train wreck happen," said Bonnie Upright, who helped set up the event.
She was there during Good Morning Jacksonville today when Lewis Turner tried ... and tried ... and tried to get through a muddy obstacle.
Lewis had a hard enough time with the obstacle ... just 1 of the more than 30 obstacles racers with have to overcome.
But, like Boselli teaches the kids, if you keep trying, eventually you will succeed.
