  1. That was an awesome event. It was truly challenging and I’ve done enough mud runs to be able to compare. I was impressed with how well it was organized. It ran smoothly start to finish. It was an honor to support a great cause while having a blast. I will definitely run again next year with my team. Go Aftershok Honeybadgers!!! Go Muck MS!!!

  2. I was one of the volunteers at this event – greeted many of these amazing people on the way in and gut hugged by a few on the way out! I love being able to be a part of the is event and will continue to volunteer my time as often as they need me.
