The 20th Anniversary of the Mt Penn Mudfest was a success! Many thanks to all of the volunteers who came out to support the club’s
efforts in putting on a quality event for our runners, many of whom
were from out of town. We had 302 finishers, lots of sunshine, a
few rocky trails, and a great post-race party. Thanks also to Mountain
Springs & Captain’s Cove, which served as race headquarters.
Looking forward to seeing everyone next year!

Congratulations to all who ran.
