On Sunday, October 5 over 500 adults, teens, kids and families, ages 6 and older, will get muddy with Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich for the third annual “Muddy Up 5k” Adventure Run and Family Fun Walk at Camp Simmons on 744 Lake Avenue in Greenwich.
A great morning is guaranteed at the 5K run walk as participants forge through rugged trails on 77 acres of pure wilderness. Participants will plunge through unique and man-made obstacles before traversing Camp Simmons’ legendary lake across the rope bridge followed by a ‘rinse’ by the Greenwich Fire Department.
This event will not be timed, but some groups will receive awards such as team spirit, biggest fundraiser, muddiest kid and more.
The Club urges individuals and teams consisting of runners and walkers, fun lovers and kid supporters to register before the deadline: Friday, Sept. 26 and help the Club reach $100,000 by contributing personally, leading a run/walk team, encouraging family and friends to participate, or being a sponsor.
Registered runners and walkers will enjoy entertainment and receive food, refreshments and an event T-shirt.
GREAT BIG thanks to goes to Lead Sponsors: All American Wrestling Club, Sageview Capital, Steven Fox Jewelry, Stone Point Capital and Titan Advisors.
