SALT LAKE CITY--()--Find your inner child and be part of the fastest growing adventure race in the country, Mud Run MS on Saturday, Aug. 13 at the Miller Motorsports Park. The inaugural event for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Utah-Southern Idaho Chapter is designed to engage participants in an exhilaratingly good time while also helping to increase MS awareness and raise funds for research and local programs and services.
“We are excited to debut Mud Run MS here in Utah”
The 10K “boot camp” style course designed by former Marines will include approximately 30 obstacles for participants to climb, crawl, run, jump, slide and roll through or near the mud.
“We are excited to debut Mud Run MS here in Utah,” said Vice President of Community Development Becky Woolley. “For people with MS, movement is a constant challenge and they often face new obstacles. This event is a perfect metaphor for such challenges as all of event participants will learn to overcome obstacles in their own race to the finish. It also will bring out the tough, fun and irreverent spirit that’s in all of us.”
Mud Run MS is suitable for all levels from the competitive athlete to the fun loving adventure seeker. Participants can compete as individuals or form a team.
More than a thousand people are expected ranging from 18-50 years old and including corporate executives, church groups, exercise enthusiasts, uniformed professionals, college students, triathletes, adventure racers and high energy people.
Grab your friends, co-workers and neighbors to sign up today. Volunteers (less dirty option) also are needed and sponsorship opportunities are still available. You’ll never get this dirty for anything this good!
