TWIN CITIES The FUN Mud Run Saturday, August 19, 2017

Price Increases in 13 days


Thank you muckers, volunteers, and spectators for turning out to make the 2017 edition of MuckFest® MS Twin Cities an event to remember. Speaking of memorable moments, did anyone catch a glimpse of the dinosaurs running the course?

After a little foggy bid'ness in the morning, the day turned bright and sunny and frankly, muck-tacular. In the Muckin' Corral, Mud Master Al made sure everyone was pumped and well-marinated in the Minnesota mud.

Big props to the muckers who took on Slippy Sloppy, our newest obstacle. Your full-throated howls and laughter were the perfect prelude to some truly big-time water entries.

Muckers also made quite a splash at the Swing Set, where a sizeable pool of spectators cheered your cannon-balls, jack-knifes and assorted ludicrous leaps.

We heard that the view of the event site from Crash Landing moved many a mucker to compose beautiful ballads before taking a leap onto that big pad of glory.

Our sincere thanks go out to all of the muckers and volunteers who fundraised on behalf of the National MS Society, including the incredible top fundraising individuals and teams listed below.

Thanks to a stalwart crew of volunteer captains and volunteers who made this event a joy for everyone.

We'd also like to thank and recognize all the muckers, volunteers and spectators who traveled from all parts of Minnesota and neighboring states to take part in the event.

Shout out to all the muckers and guests who hung out afterward to make it a big party. And thanks once again to Scott County Fair for being a great event partner. We love getting mucky at the fair!

Thank You
