Several people who suffered broken bones during an extreme mud race in Kitsap County are now suing organizers for planning a course they say was too extreme and unsafe.

A veteran mud runner, Davis broke every bone in her ankle when she fell on the obstacle, which was a slope lined with watered-down plastic that turned into a 15-foot fall into a ravine.


Comments on the article indicate that there were alternate routes around every obstacle and that that's common for these types of events.
