APTOPIX Wife Carrying Championship
Anne Murray tries to keep her face out of the muddy waters as she is carried by her husband, Sean Murray, during the 2012 North American Wife Carrying Championship Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 in Newry, Maine. The duo placed tenth with a time of 1:07.46. The event, inspired by Finnish folklore, features men carrying women on their backs in whatever way they can while negotiating an obstacle course featuring hurdles, sand traps and a water hazard.
