Hey Trail Dogs,

Tuesday is Trail Day at Lake Needwood! We’ve been getting good crowds lately. Must be the Muddy Shoes camaraderie because it surely can’t be the odor! To top it off we’re getting another big break in the weather. Compared to last week where we were in an oven, temps today will still be warm, mind you, at 88 but humidity will be really low and there will be a nice breeze. That’s Chamber of Commerce weather as the saying goes. Take advantage while you can, we got plenty of room on the trails for everybody!

OK, announcements then details:

  • 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?!
  • Save the Date! July 27th! The 7th Annual Muddy Shoes Summer Phat Ass on the trails of Seneca Lake! Great run followed by an awesome pot luck post-run mingle. Muddy Shoes provides burgers, dogs and tater tots. Currently in discussion with a local MoCo brewery to supply some liquid refreshment to each thirsty participant! More details to come! Stay tuned! Check out 7th Annual Summer Fatass on FB.
  • 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)
