This is a past event.

Missoula Mucker 

When: Sat., Sept. 6 2014
I’d had high hopes for hosting a pudding wrestling tournament this year for my birthday, but alas, plans fell through. I couldn’t convince anybody to offer up their kiddie pool for potential destruction, for one thing, nor did I want to go to all the effort of opening a zillion cups of Jell-O HandiSnacks. There was also the question of who was gonna clean it up: no dibs.

My pudding tournament is gonna have to wait, but fortunately, the Missoula Fairgrounds hosts an obstacle course race where folks can feel good about making a mess, no pudding cups required. (Full disclosure: The Indy is helping put it on.) The three-mile course features rope climbs, cargo net climbs, hurdles, slippery slopes and more. No stress if you haven’t exactly been training for a marathon lately, since it’s designed to be a reasonable workout, not a gnarly endurance test. And as befits any Missoula event, there’s brewskies available during and after the race, plus snacks.

So go ahead and make a mess at the Mucker: proceeds benefit CASA of Missoula, and its mission to help abused and neglected kids in Missoula and Mineral counties. This is one race where a little effort goes a long way.
