  Original Published: 4/30/2013Thousands of pairs of mud-caked sneakers were abandoned in parking lots by Tough Mudder participants and spectators.    An estimated 600 pairs were left at the former General Motors plant, where people parked for last weekend's event.  Ross Sackman, Facility Manager for Swan Cleaners is picking them up, and expects to be done by the end of Wednesday. Swan will run the sneakers through the dry cleaners, return the sneakers to good-as-new condition, and give them to charity. The first load was dropped off at Swan Cleaners Tuesday morning. The cleaning process will take several weeks. More sneakers were left at the Richland Mall, but they were removed by Tuesday morning. An estimated 8,000 pairs were also left at Mansfield Lahm Airport. They have also been removed to be cleaned and sent to needy families overseas.
