MuckFest MS is the National MS Society’s mud-filled adventure 5k that is “built for laughs”. Its steel-constructed obstacles are designed to spin you around and toss you up, down, and sideways into muck-filled madness. It’s a day full of good times including music, food, beer, games, and even a muddy play area for the wee ones. A perfect way to spend a hot summer day… and perhaps even meet some new friends, too!
On August 4th, 2018, Team N3kk1d’s b4r3 4rm5 running group returned to Detroit’s Willow Metropark for a fourth year of mud-laden adventures. Clear skies, 80-degree temperatures, new friends, and plenty of muck made for an amazing time! On top of that, the team raised more than $1,000 to fund MS-related programs and research in Michigan and beyond. Check out this year’s photos and video in our online gallery!
From 2012 to 2014, Team N3kk1d and the National MS Society coordinated a running and volunteer team for the Fifth Third River Bank Run as an official charity partner. That partnership has concluded; however, we invite those runners to continue to battle multiple sclerosis pounding the pavement at the many Finish MS events throughout the state.
