Thousands of runners will gather at MuckFest MS events in 2014 to slip, slide, slosh, climb, crawl, jump and celebrate. MuckFest MS is presented in partnership with the National MS Society.

It’s a 5K run of pure athletic hilarity, featuring a one-of-a-kind course packed with 20+ outrageous obstacles surrounded by mud-filled pits, trenches and craters. MuckFest MS attracts thousands of women and men, young and old, athletic and not-so-athletic, who band together on teams for a mucky 5K in support of a world free of multiple sclerosis.

Teams are encouraged to invite friends and family to MuckFest MS events. There’s no charge for spectators and even the little ones get their own mucky play area called Lil’ Muckers. The course is arranged so that spectators can see not only the start and finish, but also several of the most muck-tacular obstacles. After teams cross the finish line, they take their mucky mud-soaked 'after' photo, hose off, and celebrate the day with a complimentary beer and treat in the MuckFestival area.

It’s not just about the fun and the slapstick shenanigans out on the course. There’s also a mission behind the muck: 100% of funds raised by participants benefit the National MS Society and the local chapters, which provides programs and services that help people address the challenges of living with MS and funds cutting-edge research into the cause, treatment and a cure for MS. Participants have raised over $16 million for the National MS Society.

CELEBRATE! YOU DID IT! If there’s anyone you need to say, “Told you so!” to, do it now, before you pick up your event shirt. Report to the hose-off area to get, well, hosed off. Pick up your gear from gear check.

Gather your entourage and head over to the MuckFestival area. It is time to celebrate, but it’s also a chance to reflect on the challenges you overcame today on the MuckFest MS course. Take a moment to visit the National MS Society tent to see clearly how your participation and fundraising helps people living with MS overcome the difficult challenges in their daily lives.

When you’re ready, get your beer and some grub with the tickets attached to your bib. Food and drinks (including beer) are available for your friends and family to purchase and they are invited to hang out with you and your team.

Get ready for some unforgettable photo opportunities when you let the lil' muckers loose in our free mucky playground space at MuckFest MS. Just like the older muckers, the kids can slip and slide their way through some thoroughly mucky obstacles. We'll supply the muck and the water, but don’t forget a towel and a change of clothes to clean up the lil’ muckers after they’re done.

There is no charge for admittance to the Lil' Muckers area, but a parent or guardian will need to complete and sign a waiver and be present to supervise while the child is inside the Lil' Muckers area.
Team:
The Top 3 Reasons to Join or Start a Team

1. It’s funner on a team. Yeah, we know it’s “more fun.” But really, hands down, the best way to experience the non-stop spills and thrills of MuckFest MS is with your very own team.

2. Unlike flash mobs, it only takes two people to start a MuckFest MS team. Whether it’s a friend, family member or even that mud-curious guy in the next cubicle, you only need one other mucker to start a team. You’re welcome!

3. Oh, the rewards. As if being on a team isn’t reward enough, we have mucktacular team rewards and on-event surprises and competitions for teams. If you’re not on a team, you’re out of muck.
