Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest
What started out as a tragedy that none of us will forget has turned into something special remembering Daniel Barden, a first grader who lost his life in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012. The Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest takes places this Saturday, April 25 at MKJ Farm, 6844 W. Hughes Rd., Deansboro. The Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest consists of 5K, 5 Mile & Kid’s Run.
5 Mile ‘Moor’ Mud Run
This run is for the tough and rugged athletes. Be prepared to be challenged! For the highly competitive group we will have the 5 mile ‘Moor’ Mud Run which will be a timed event. This event is a longer and more difficult version of the 5K Mud Run. Not for the faint hearted or out of shape crowd.
5k Mud Run
This 5K race will be a challenge to the fittest of athletes, yet rewarding to all. The course will have unique natural obstacles with a Highland Games theme. Although kilts are not required, we strongly encourage them, in the spirit of Highland Games! While finishing would be considered an accomplishment, time and a place finish will not be a factor. Teams are encouraged, as this awesome challenge is best enjoyed among friends! This challenging 5K event in which takes you up and down hills, through the woods all the while being in a beautiful country setting. Yes, there will be mud, it’s in April. Yes, it may be cold and wet. Please wear a kilt with possibly some undergarments, a comfortable shirt, and sneakers you won’t mind getting muddy!
