SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Hundreds of runners participated in the 5th annual JCB Mudfest on Saturday to support a good cause.

The race included a variety of obstacles like mud pits, ice baths, soapy waters, and a nice stroll across those lakes you see when you're riding down 95. Runners could choose between a 5 mile course or a 5K course.

With all of the surprises that happened throughout the day, organizers say this year was the best one yet.

"Giving back to our community, being a part of it, just being out here on a Saturday morning and racing is a great thing and seeing young a older people out here is just awesome for the community," said Brian Grenchik, mud runner.

The fun didn't end after the run; There was a party in the mud pit and Battle of the Bands following the races.

All money raised from the event went to the Lady Bamford Center, an organization that helps homeless children get a free education.
