A dirty event for a good cause is coming to New Boston during the first weekend in August, and as long as you’re not afraid to get muddy and have some fun, there’s still room to sign up.
Muckfest Detroit — a mud run filled with several obstacles located on a 3.1 mile, 5k course, will be held at Willow Metropark on Saturday, Aug. 5, and more than two thousand runners are expected to participate.
Every dollar raised from the race, according to Muckfest organizers, is used by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to help fund cutting-edge research and to provide vital programs and services for people affected by multiple sclerosis.
To date, MuckFest event participants have raised more than $22 million for the cause, run organizers say.
No special training is required for the run.
“Runners have a blast on mountains of mud and outrageous obstacles that spin, swing, and fling them up, down, and sideways,” said Muckfest organizers.
