Organizer:MuddyUp 5k Race Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich is proud to host the 2nd annual Muddy Up 5k Adventure Race & Family Fun Walk on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. This exciting event is for adults, teens, and families who enjoy a competitive adventure run or walk through wooded trails with fun obstacles and plenty of mud, and who are enthusiastic about supporting the Club's essential outdoor adventure programs for KIDS 6-18.
The Muddy Up 5k Adventure Race & Family Fun Walk will be held at Camp Simmons, the Club's 77 acre wooded property on Lake Avenue in Greenwich. Camp Simmons complements our 52,000 square foot Clubhouse at Horseneck Lane, which includes a climbing wall, zipline and archery range. Kids are able to learn skills at the Clubhouse, and then put them into action in the outdoor setting at Camp Simmons. Each dollar generated by this year's Muddy Up 5k will go towards funding these valuable programs.
Outdoor education teaches children life-long skills that build self-confidence and character, instill a sense of adventure and wanderlust, promote a healthy lifestyle, and develop environmental stewardship...all while they are having fun!
There are prizes for the 1st place adult female/male winners! There will be awards given for muddiest kid/adult, most creative costume kid/adult, best team spirit and more!
The minimum registration fee for each participant is $30, but the Club asks that you set a goal of raising $500 to ensure we reach our target. We guarantee you will have an exciting, fun filled, and rewarding morning, knowing that your muddy adventure will have a large and lasting impact on deserving children.
