A Muddy Fun Day at the 2012 Into The Mud Challenge |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
The racers are muddy…very muddy. That means the 2nd Annual Into the Mud Challenge has reached its conclusion, and the results are in!
The Into the Mud Challenge, southern Maine’s premier mud run, has just released its list of winners. Awards and a variety of prizes were given away, and one lucky winner, Casey Dunfey, will be receiving free beer for a year from Shipyard Brewing Company.
The Into the Mud Challenge was again a unique mud run that featured slippery pits of mud along with obstacles to overcome, all in the spirit of fun and friendly competition. There were multiple divisions of competition, including an individual division, a team division, which allows groups of four to compete alongside friends, relatives, and co-workers, and the “Muddy Dash” for kids under 12. The team division also includes a costume competition. Prizes were awarded to the winners of each division, along with the team with the best costumes. Proceeds from the Challenge will be put in a scholarship fund for future Sport Management majors at the University of Southern Maine.
The results are as follows:
Men’s Individual – Winner: Bill Masri of Portland
Runner Up: Sean Galpeau of Otisfield
Women’s Indiv. – Winner: Sarah Cadorette of Lyman

Men’s Team – Winners: Moody’s Collision Center of Southern Maine

In addition to free beer for our lucky winner, Shipyard Brewing Company also donated glasses, which were given as prizes to runners who found rubber ducks hidden among the obstacles.
Thatcher’s Restaurant and Sports Pub hosted the post-race party at their Gorham location. Competitors, staff, and spectators had a great time, taking the opportunity to mingle and reflect on the race.
The ITMC 2012 staff would like to thank all of this year’s sponsors, volunteers, and participants for making the race one to remember. Over 650 muddy runners traversed the course this year, and we hope you all come back for more muddy fun in 2013!
