ReALLIEty Challenge tougher and muddier

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The dirtiest party in town lived up to its name for the second year in a row. 

More than 1,100 people took the ReALLIEty Challenge - a test of skill and endurance which took participants on a three-and-a-half mile course of military style maneuvers.

Many who took the challenge last year said it was not only harder but muddier.

"It was harder for me and I felt. The most challenging was the one where you had to climb up the mud wall and they sprayed water on you. But it was fun," said Camryn Trahan.

"It was a little bit hard than last year. A little bit longer, but I beat my time from last year. So, that is good. The hardest part was the clay wall with water and pulling yourself up with the rope in the clay. And it was a lot more muddier this year," said Ryan Billedeaux.

A portion of the proceeds will help "The Mission Continues" a non-profit group helping post 9-11 veterans find jobs.
