Share This Great Galloway Patriot Story & Photos
The final Magnus Mud Run of 2016 was run on August 2oth and drew a great crowd. As always, the kids had great fun and enjoyed the obstacle course built just for them. Galloway kids ran the course for free and then were hosed off by Galloway’s Fire Department which brought multiple fire trucks. The townships public works department brought two big truck loads of dirt for the “Mud Mountain”.
The event was kicked off by the Absecon VFW Post 9462 Honor Guard posting colors and leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. After that Galloway Fire Chief, Chuck Mackintosh, fired the Galloway Patriot’s Civil War cannon the “Jaime Lee” to start the event. We have a great video of the cannon firing below.
We would like to thank all of the kids for coming out and running the course as well as the parents for helping their children negotiate obstacles and to cheer them on. Most of all we would like to thank our volunteers. Loading the trucks, setting up all the obstacles, managing the event and then loading it all back up and putting it back in storage at Clayton’s is such a difficult and exhausting task. You all did an amazing job and it is very much appreciated.
We would also like thank Galloway Fire Department, Galloway Community Services, Galloway Public Works and Clayton Self Storage for providing the obstacles a home when they are not in use.
We hope you enjoy all the great photos. We would like to thank “Inspire Photos” Hector and Carrie for some great shots and aerial video (below).
As everyone knows, the event is free for a all Galloway children. A fund raiser is being planned for over the winter to raise money which is needed to rebuild obstacles and add a few more. If anyone would like to help plan the event, please contact us. We will see everyone again next summer for an even bigger better event.
