Merrell Down & Dirty Obstacle Race

Andrej Dukalev, 27, of Rocky Hill, trudges through mud toward the finish line of the Merrell "Down & Dirty" Obstacle Race at Riverside Park in Hartford. Entrants run either a 3 mile or 6 mile course through mud, over walls, and up hills. "I like the atmosphere, people aren't competitive and give you a hand," said Dukalev. "It's about the camaraderie of it all."
