‘Czech Mudness’ saw 71 teams from eight Allies getting dirty during a long obstacle course under the cold weather, hosted by the Czech Army.

Synopsis

The Czech contingent of the NATO multinational battlegroup in Lithuania hosted their ‘Czech Mudness’ competition, where soldiers had to navigate a series of challenges in mudslides and forest trails in a seven-kilometre obstacle course.

Seventy-one teams from several battlegroup nations – Belgium, Czechia, Germany, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and the United States – jumped into the mud for the event. In order to successfully navigate the obstacle courses, the soldiers had to work together to tackle different obstacles and cross the finish line together.

Footage includes shots of soldiers from Belgium, Czechia, Germany, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and the United States working together to tackle a series of challenges in the obstacle course. And an interview with the Czech organiser, OF-1 Matěj of the Czech Army.
