How do I keep my shoes from getting sucked off of my feet by the mud?

Is the mud dirty?
Well...the answer to that question is yes and no. Yes, all mud is dirty, however this dirty mud will be fresh, soft, premium soil that is brought in just for the Mud Run.

It will not have chemicals, bugs, rocks, or other foul debris that is often associated with mud.
