Here’s a question about Pirates Week: What do pirates do the rest of the year?
For at least one Saturday morning, their raiding is done along the trails of a “Mud Run!”
Those pirates know that Pirates Week is one of Cayman’s major festivals but all that fun in November doesn’t happen without yearlong planning and yearlong fundraising, like Mud Run. “People are looking for something different, and what is more different than running through mud?! We have a lot of sporting events but I don’t think we have anything of this nature in the Cayman Islands so this is the most unique event I believe, sporting wise,” said Pirates Week Director Melanie McField.
These pirate allies didn’t just get wet and dirty, they were challenged in other ways throughout the 5K obstacle course – all to help ensure success for the 39th edition of Pirates Week coming up later this year.
