Before the event, New Jersey was voted Best Mud in America.

Over this past weekend at MuckFest® MS New Jersey, you proved it!

With the best mucking weather imaginable, over 5,600 muckers and their teams from across the Northeast region converged on West Orange and made the 2016 event the BIGGEST MuckFest MS New Jersey EVER!

There was love at the finish line with a muddy marriage proposal. There were epic spills and acrobatic thrills. We saw fantastic teams and "Mermicorns" and other mythical mud creatures, who emerged from the new orange changing pods transformed and ready to hoist their Traveler Beers at McCloone's Boathouse. Well done, muckers, and thank you!

Sincere thanks for the enthusiastic support (and awesome dance moves) from the dedicated crew of over 250 volunteers, including stalwart volunteer captains comprised of staff from the New Jersey Metro chapter of the National MS Society, and returning volunteers Eddie and Lyndsay, who took their first leap together last year off of Crash Landing.

Big thanks to our Local Presenting Sponsor, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, who again this year made a muscular showing with over 200 muckers. Thanks also to Essex County South Mountain Reservation for being such an awesome event host. And thanks to AbbVie for providing the space for people affected by MS to show that MS WILL KNOT DEFEAT US, especially when we come together like we did in New Jersey.
