Hands down, the best way to experience the laugh riot of MuckFest™ MS is with your very own team. When you are on a team you can
- share the experience and have witnesses to prove you did it
- support a team member, family member or friend with MS
- celebrate your mucky exploits with your peeps
Need more reasons? Okay.
#1 It’s funner on a team. Yeah, we know it’s “more fun.” One of the “funnest” things to do is name your team—it can be something delightfully dirty or curiously clever or satisfyingly straightforward. Name it after your business or your aunt with the iridescent hair. It’s up to you. (Seriously, you’d be surprised how many ways you can use the words “mud,” “muck” and “mucker” in your team names. Oh, behave!)
#2 Unlike the tango or gin rummy, it only takes one person to start a MuckFest MS team. Whether it’s you, a friend, family member or even that mud-curious guy from Accounting, you only need one person to step up and start your MuckFest MS team. As we say, if you start it, they will come.
#3 Teams help. We can all use a little help, and MuckFest MS Teammates help each other with fundraising before the event and on the course in the muddy pits and on the muck-tacular obstacles.
#4 Oh, the rewards. As if being on a team isn’t reward enough, we have mucktacular team rewards and on-event surprises and fun competitions for teams. If you’re not on a team, you’re out of muck.
#5 Dressing up. We’re not fashionistas, we’re muck-a-nistas. MuckFest MS teams have the best and wackiest outfits, whether it’s something above or below the waist or on your face. Sorry Tim Gunn, but we really know how to “make it work."
More info and stuff for teams

Hang this awesome fundraising poster in your office or at any fundraising event, whether it’s a Mud-tini Tuesday at a local bar or a Muck-Bowling night. Colorful and eye-catching, your Team Poster is not only a conversation-starter, but a great way to get new team members interested in joining.

Not as creepy as it sounds, this tracking sheet helps you keep track of your team’s fundraising progress. You’ll have to provide your own gold stars.
About Wave / Start Times
We can't have too many people out on the course at once—it’s a safety issue—so participants are assigned a specific wave/start time. This makes it safe and more enjoyable for you and your team. Two weeks before the event, we will manually assign specific wave/start times, doing everything possible to keep teams together and starting at the same time. We will notify all participants of their specific start times via email. Wave/start times will also be updated in your Participant Center. If you register after the two-week out assignments are made, your wave/start time assignment will be completed on Thursday, two days before the event. Again, we will make our best effort to include you with your other team members, but the best option is to register at least two weeks prior to the event. More questions? Take a spin through our FAQ.
