ANNUAL MUCK RUN:  The Varsity Cross Country team is hosting its annual Muck Run on October 29th at 10 am. This 5-kilometer “fun run” takes place at the Tech Trails on the Saturday before Halloween, and includes a race course that goes through muck and mire, hence the name.  There is a best costume contest, so everyone should dress in their Halloween costumes and be prepared for a fun time!  There will also be door prizes open to all competitors.

Attention Student Organizations and Greek Life:  If enough interest is generated with the  Student Orgs or Greek Life, we will arrange a special team category for them and have prizes for the top student organization, fraternity, or sorority.   If interested, contact Jonathan Kilpela at jmkilpel@mtu.edu.
