Mud bogging is a type of off-road motorsport where drivers try to take their vehicles through the mud. It began as a backyard entertainment but has grown in popularity.
In Georgia, there are three major mud bogs. South Creek Mud Boggin' in Milledgeville, North Georgia Mud Bog in Carnesville and West Georgia Mud Park in Tallapoosa. There are also mud bogging events in Climax, Ga., and Moultrie, among others on this full list.
Activities at mud bogging events include drag racing, dam jumping, tug-of-war and "open bogging." There are often rules on what vehicles are allowed, such as truck-only days. Companies running bogs also tend to prohibit glass bottles, tire spinning outside the mud pit and pets.
Two children died after a mud bogging accident at South Creek Mud Boggin'. ABC affiliate WGXA in Macon said a truck may have run into the crowd around 7:30 p.m.
