    MuckFest (Aug. 23)

    The first-ever MuckFest MS Chicago will be on Saturday, August, 23rd in Lockport, IL! You don't want to miss witnessing participants running, swinging, sloshing, climbing, and laughing their ways through a 5K course of incredible obstacles and muddy pits, trenches and craters. We need volunteers to assist at check-in, on the course, and in the festival areas.
