Galloway Patriot’s Magnus Mud Run in Galloway Twp NJ July 2014

The July 2014 Magnus Mud Run produced by the Galloway Patriot and Galloway Township was the best one yet. The event which took place at the Galloway Twp. Municipal Complex on Jimmie Leeds Rd., drew a large crowd of a few hundred children plus parents and friends.

Everyone had a great time at the Mud Run and then the kids swam for free at the Galloway Swim Club which was right on the other side of the pond.

The Galloway Patriot and Knutson family would like to thank the MUA for bringing the dirt as well as the Bayview and Oceanville Fire Departments for doing such an outstanding job of making mud and washing off the kids.

We would also like to thank the volunteers that helped us set-up and take-down all the obstacles.

A special thanks to Clayton Self Storage in Galloway for letting us keep all the obstacles at their storage facility. Without the storage locker we would not be able to continue doing the Mud Runs.

Here are some photos from the event. Register your child now for the next one by clicking ton the Magnus Mud Run banner.
