BOSTON, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This weekend, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Event 360 kick off the 2015 season of MuckFest MS in Boston. MuckFest MS, a mud & obstacle 5K event series, takes place in 11 cities throughout the country. This year, MuckFest MS will introduce new obstacles to the course including a rope bridge with confetti canons, zip lines and stunt bag leap over a mud hill & pit. Registration is now open at www.MuckFestMS.com.
Teams of runners will slog through mud and overcome outrageous obstacles that spin, swing, and fling them up, down, and sideways. There's no special training required, so the event attracts people of all ages and widely varying skills and abilities from all walks of life. The MuckFest MS series is built for laughs, but it's also on a serious mission: to bring us closer to a world free of multiple sclerosis. 100% of funds raised by MuckFest MS runners go to the National MS Society.
