We're all out here to have fun. Please observe the No Sad-Sack policy. That's why we've designed an event site with a ginormous MuckFestival area anchoring a muck-tacular 5K course with outrageous obstacles and a whole lot of mud. Your cheeks will be sore by the end… from smiling and laughing, presumably. You’ll also get a genuine sense of accomplishment when you cross the finish line with your team, and we’ve gotta tell you, it's mucking awesome.
The music’s pumpin’. The mud is thick. And you’re lined up with your team, getting ready to go in the Muckin’ Corral. But this ain’t no rodeo, my friend! Our Master of Shenanigans, Emcee Al, is there to get you primed and mucky. We don’t want to give away too much, but be prepared to try out some, shall we say, unorthodox warm-up routines. Think Mucky Pilates or Dirty Yoga or Zany Muddercize.
The word OBSTACLES doesn’t quite work for us. For example, when you go to an amusement park, you don’t ask, “Where are the obstacles?” At MuckFest MS, if you listen closely, when runners take on our obstacles, they hoot, and holler, and laugh, and it sounds like they’re on a thrill ride. Our obstacles are super-fun challenges built to make you laugh. They are meticulously designed. And we think they’re the BEST OBSTACLES out there. End of story.
When you and your team cross the finish line, strike a muck-heroic pose, then ring the bell to create a world free of MS. But this thing isn’t over until you’ve figured out who had the most epic spill of the day. Shower off, grab a beer, then make a mucky toast to your accomplishment. You and your team earned it.
Whether you’re mucking it with MS, supporting or honoring a friend or family member or just out to have a good time with great people, you should know that you’re part of something special. To date, the MuckFest runners and volunteers have raised over $32 million to support the life-changing work of the National MS Society. That means more cutting-edge research and continued support for people living with MS.
