Muddy marvel Kathryn joins charity challenge

The busiest lady in TV, aka Kathryn Thomas, will be taking on yet another challenge after signing up to lend her support to Multiple Sclerosis Ireland.

The Carlow beauty, who has been going down a storm with viewers of Operation Transformation, will be swapping her stilettos for some sneakers.

The TV presenter has just signed up as the face of the MS Muck 'n' Splash race on Saturday, March 26. She'll be joined by hundreds of participants at Mondello Park in Naas to join in the mud-filled challenge. The 5km course, normally used for off-road driving, is not for the faint hearted given that it will take participants -- who are asked to raised €150 -- through a series of mucky obstacles.

Also taking part will be celebrity trainer Paul Byrne and many local celebrities. There are prizes up for the quickest past the post, with a €15 entry fee on the day and Persil goodies up for grabs for the winners.
