Summer Team Building and Training Ideas for MuckFest
It’s summertime and the living is…muddy! We are only a few days away from New Jersey MuckFest, and then we’re heading West for Chicago and Denver. But for now, get outside for some MuckFest training and teambuilding! Let’s make the most of summer smiles to spread the word about an amazing cause and a wonderfully muddy time.
Whether you’ve already run at a MuckFest this year or have your muddy weekend coming up soon, you can connect with other Muckers online to help grow your team and recruit more people to the muck. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our blog for the latest updates on our amazing obstacles, discounted registrations…and more!
You can also connect on our special MuckFest groups for:
- MuckFest Volunteers
- Boston Team Captains
- Philadelphia Team Captains
- Chicago Team Captains
- Denver Team Captains
These are great pages to help you join a MuckFest team or expand your own! Don’t forget, if you’re the team captain of a team with seven or more members, you can sport a super cool arm band during MuckFest this year. Who wouldn’t want that?!
You can also get tips for recruiting new teammates from our blog. Did you know that we found ways to use muddy pick-up lines to ask someone to join your team? We did, and if they don’t work, we don’t know what will 😉
In terms of training, just remember that MuckFest is a run for everyone! We have lowered the minimum age to participate to only 10 years old (with an adult guardian) so that more kiddos can get in on the Muck. Kids aged 5-11 can also get muddy in our Lil’ Muckers area too! However, if you want to really prep and get ready to run, Mud Run Guide helped us out with lots of great advice for first time Muckers, and we have even more on our blog.
To fully prep, it helps to learn about the course and all our amazing obstacles, too! Do you think you’ll like jumping like an action star on Crash Landing best? Or would you rather crawl through Belly Crawl? There’s only one way to find out. And that’s to get muddy! How are you prepping for MuckFest this summer? Tell us your favorite tips and tricks in
