THANK YOU, Boston!
Now that's how to get the party started!
Outstanding, Boston! You delivered in a big way, going above and beyond our muckiest dreams! After a winter that would make even the toughest among us cry, “Uncle!” you showed up on a sunny (and chilly) weekend ready to muck it, demonstrating that Boston Strong is a tradition. We loved seeing you conquer and own the three new obstacles, but after watching you on the Crash Landing, we think some of you have a second career as a stunt double. Speaking of stunts, way to celebrate in the MuckFestival area after the run, playing Giant Beer Pong and thoroughly enjoying the Traveler Beer, provided by our muck-tacular national sponsor. A sincere thanks to all the great volunteers; it all worked, and worked beautifully because of you and all your efforts. Thanks to the Willard Athletic Complex for being such a wonderful host and allowing us to muck about on your site for the weekend.
A special message from the Greater New England Chapter of the National MS Society.
Thank you for coming out and making MuckFest MS Boston such a great success. We would like to thank all the runners, volunteers and staff who came out to run, help and support each other this weekend. Every day of the year, we work hard to support people living with multiple sclerosis. There is still time to support the mission behind the “muck” and help us reach our fundraising goal. Make a donation online at www.MuckFestMS.com or call the chapter.

On behalf of all the runners and staff, thank you Jennifer, and in the words of @nhripps: “Thanks to you and all of the volunteers that make it happen!” And thanks to all the runners who mucked it on the course, then took a shift and volunteered.

You Can Be a Muckety Muck
You probably noticed the signs on the course honoring the members of the Muckety Muck Club, which honors our top fundraisers. What you might not realize is that the Muckety Muck Club is something that you can qualify for after the event. And because of that, the rewards and perks of being a Muckety Muck go on all year through to the next season. So, don't stop fundraising now, not when you can still be a Muckety Muck!
