The Muck It Up! Adventure Race will return in 2018!  Challenge yourself this fall as Colchester Parks & Recreation’s Race Series brings back the Muck It Up - Outdoor Challenge!  Racers will truly enjoy this off-road course as it intertwines through woods, fields and water during Vermont’s beautiful fall foliage season. The event will involve trail running, paddling and mountain biking, on a beginner-intermediate pre-set, marked course. Racers will receive post-race refreshments, timed results, race shirt and finisher’s award. Top finishers in each division will receive the coveted Muck It Up Mantle Award!
