MuckFest returns! Are you ready?

WEST ORANGE, NJ — More than a thousand participants are expected at MuckFest MS New Jersey on Saturday, June 25, and Sunday, June 26. MuckFest MS is the fun mud and obstacle 5K for everyone. No special training is required. Runners have a blast on mountains of mud and outrageous obstacles that spin, swing and fling them up, down and sideways. MuckFest MS New Jersey is presented locally by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.

According to a press release, 100 percent of funds raised by MuckFest MS runners support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s mission to stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost, and end MS forever. To date, MuckFest MS event participants have raised more than $22 million.

The event will be held in the South Mountain Reservation at the intersection of Northfield Avenue and Cherry Lane. The site opens each morning at 7:30 a.m., with the races beginning at 9 a.m.
