DENVER – The first-ever Mud Run MS Colorado, an exciting event produced by the Original Mud Run and benefiting the National MS Society, Colorado-Wyoming Chapter, is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Aug. 27 at Winter Park Resort.

Mud Run MS Colorado is a 10K course with a series of boot-camp-style obstacles, most of which contain water and mud.

Mud Run MS offers a unique blend of camaraderie, physical fitness and of course down and dirty fun. Participants can compete as an individual, or put together a team to run the course together. This is a great event for families, companies, colleges, military personnel and civil servants.

The inaugural course will serve two divisions – the Trophy Division and the DGAP Division. The Trophy Division is a competitive and timed run for individuals and teams that want to test their strength, speed, agility and grit. Prizes will be awarded for a variety of individual and team categories.

The DGAP Division is for individuals and teams of any size that want a fun challenge, but don’t care about winning or losing. Long pants are recommended, costumes are welcome and every participant receives a Mud Run MS T-shirt.

“We look forward to our first Mud Run MS, which will be a unique experience for everyone, whether participating, volunteering, or watching and cheering others on,” said Carrie Nolan, president of the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National MS Society. “It is a unique way to enjoy a challenge while having a good time and it benefits people with MS who work to overcome challenges and obstacles daily,” Nolan added.

From July 28 to Aug. 24 registration is $60. Registration is $75 at packet pickup. Each participant is required to raise a minimum of $100, which will be used to support programs, services and research that benefit the 88,000 people in Colorado and Wyoming who are affected by MS.
