Greenwich Boys & Girls Club “Muddy Up” Mud Run 5K Registration is Open

Participants town wide may still sign up for the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich seventh annual Muddy Up 5k!

This friend and family mud run/walk takes place Sunday, September 30, 2018 at Camp Simmons on 744 Lake Avenue in Greenwich at 9:00 a.m. 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, crossing a rope bridge, plunging into a gigantic mud pit, and being ‘rinsed’ off by the Greenwich Fire Department at the finish line. Alternate pathways will also be provided. The race will not be timed, and everyone receives a hand-made medallion upon completing the course.

Muddy Up 5K registration is $50 per person and is open online at“We are looking to the community to sign up and support this friends and family event and help us reach this year’s goal of $150,000,” said Bobby Walker Jr., executive director of BGCG.

More than 50 percent of Boys & Girls Club Greenwich members live below the poverty line. Each dollar generated from the mud run will enable the Club to continue its After-School programs which provide economically challenged families with high quality, safe and after-school care, affordable for all.
