Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest
The first annual Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest will take place at MKJ Farms in Deansboro. The event will feature a 5K mud run that climbs and falls over the hills of Deansboro, approximately 15 miles south of Utica.
Runners will be challenged on hills, wooden obstacles and water. Athletes will also have the chance to compete in a traditional Highland event: "the Farmer Carry." This event is always entertaining and demonstrates great acts of courage. Kilts are requested for all participants and encouraged for all. There will also be a half-pint, half-mile kids run. Spectators and athletes will be treated to Irish music, local food and vendors.
Daniel Barden, 7, was one of the first graders killed in the Sandy Hook, CT tragedy in December 2012. A niece of organizers of the event was inside the Sandy Hook Elementary school that day. She escaped physically unharmed, her dear friend and next-door neighbor Daniel, did not. Daniel was a kind and gentle child, who was polite to everyone. The goal of this event is to raise money for Daniel’s family, including two remaining siblings. All proceeds will be donated to the Barden Fund.
Athletes may register for the Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest at www.active.com. For more information, go to www.facebook.com/danielbardenhighlandmudfest

Filled with Broadway-style show tunes and dances and a set that makes you feel you’ve walked into the book this one act musical is just more pink fun!
