Registration is now open for the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich 8th annual Muddy Up 5k! This highly anticipated friends and family mud run/walk takes place Sunday, September 29, 2019 at Camp Simmons on 744 Lake Avenue in Greenwich at 9:00am. This event sells out every year, so participants are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.

The Muddy Up 5K is for runners and walkers of ALL AGES who enjoy a competitive 3.1-mile adventure on wooded trails with 18 natural and man-made obstacles, while crossing a rope bridge, plunging into a gigantic mud pit, and being “rinsed” off by the Greenwich Fire Department at the finish line. The race is not timed, and everyone receives a hand-made medallion upon completing the course.

Muddy Up 5K race registration is $50 per person and is open online
at https://give.classy.org/bgcgmuddyup5K2019. Individuals and teams are invited to sign up, get moving, have fun and most importantly, support our community’s children in need. Each dollar generated from the event will enable the Club to continue its after-school programs which provide families with high quality, safe and affordable after-school care, affordable for ALL.

“We are looking to the community to support this annual, family event and help us reach this year’s goal of $150,000 by joining the run, signing up a team with family members, work colleagues or friends,” said Bobby Walker Jr., chief executive officer of BGCG.

The Club also encourages local businesses to support the event. The MU5k attracts 700 runners, walkers and volunteers from Greenwich and Fairfield County and provides wide-spread community visibility. Corporate Sponsorship opportunities range from $1,500 – $25,000 as well as in-kind support through product donations.
