It's a Family Tradition !


Kiersten H.

Like so many other parents, I put a lot of effort on balancing, limiting, and even supporting to an extent, my 12 - year-olds interest in video games.  He isn’t into athletics. He really has no desire to “make the team.”  And that’s ok with me, but I still work hard to share my own values around exercise and staying active.  So when I signed the two of us up for the Big Muddy Challenge, I didn’t know what to expect.  By the time we crossed the finish line, muddy and all smiles, I knew it was more than I could have imagined.  My son told me it was the most fun he’s had in a long time.  No screens.  No controllers.  No high score.  Just honest exercise in a fun, supportive, and safe environment.  And the very best part for this single mom was that we could do it together.  BMC is the ideal event for families of all types and fitness levels.  We will definitely do it again.
