WET & WILD & MUCK-TACULAR!
Mother Nature, that mischievous minx, made the course and surrounding area extra wet and extra wild, which made everything extra mucky, which seemed to suit you just fine. As a matter of fact, the wet conditions did nothing to dampen (sorry!) your spirits. Thanks for rolling with it in more ways than one.
We saw brightly decorated team tents (complete with red carpet and lounge furniture) and impressive team shirts and outfits. There were muddy shenanigans and shoulder-shimmyin' at the Muckin' Corral, and hoots, hollers and cheers of encouragement out on the course. To go along with that we saw some mighty inspiring teamwork on those slippery Triple Pits.
And that energy and camaraderie carried over to the MuckFestival where so many of you stuck around, played some games, and celebrated your accomplishments. You made it an awesome mucking party from beginning to end, and we salute your mud-thusiasm.
Our rain hats are off to the outstanding group of volunteers who persevered despite the wet conditions and helped create a safe, fun and friendly atmosphere in the MuckFestival and out on the course. Thank you and know that none of it is possible without you!
A sincere thank you 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.
And this year's winner of the Muckiest Mayor Competition goes to Parker's very own Mike Waid, who captained Mayor Mike's Muddy MuckFest Maniacs, a team that raised over $1,000, and is a frontrunner for this year's Most Alliterative Team Name contest. Thanks for keepin' it mucky, Mayor.
And finally, a big thanks to Salisbury North for being a great event partner and for letting us horse around on your site.
Thank you for coming out and making MuckFest MS Denver so memorable. We would like to thank all the runners, volunteers, spectators and staff who participated and supported each other this weekend. It is that spirit of support that inspires us to work hard every day of the year to support people living with multiple sclerosis.
