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.

The fourth annual Jimmy Williams memorial run raised $11,000 in scholarships that were awarded to 11 Huron High School seniors this year.

The run, held May 6 at Willow Metro Park in New Boston, is held every spring in honor of Jimmy Williams, an honor student and exceptional athlete at Huron High School who died in a car crash on Nov. 18, 2012 while he was traveling with his family through South Carolina on vacation.

“In total after four years, we have awarded $35,000 in scholarships in Jimmy’s name,” said Keith Becki, organizer of the event.

183 runners participated in the event.
