Hey Mud Shuckers,

I put a call in to Mother Nature. She’s up for giving us a swell evening weather-wise but she won’t make any promises for future Tuesdays seeing how Summer is coming and she gets a lot of requests. Bottom line, take it while you can! This evening is going to be made-to-order for trail running. July will be here before you know it. C U out there!

Sooooo, as usual, announcements then details:

  • As many of you know, we lost Kevin Ruppel a great friend and runner this past Winter to ALS. There will be a KEVIN RUPPEL MEMORIAL FUN RUN on Sunday, June 9th. Please come out to run and/or share memories. https://fb.me/1X7o7IMoUlBptoX
  • 2024 marks the 10 year anniversary of Muddy Shoes? Yup, ten years ago we had our first run. To mark the occasion, we will be getting commemorative swag to celebrate. Stay tuned. Save your money! T-shirts are coming?!
  • Muddy Shoes Saturday Trail Runs are ongoing! Regular Saturday runs that take us to trails and venues that you might not have seen in a larger group. We also provide after-run refreshments (remember ice cold mini-Cokes and pickle chips?) and chit-chat. Mingle with your trail besties! Keep an eye out for details sent out each Friday.
  • We have swag! Muddy Shoes Baseball caps (a mere $15), Buffs ($10) and Reusable Cups ($5). See Coach Phil or Coach Mike (Chau)
