Muck-Suck 20ish lake path run cancelled

Muck-Suck 20ish lake path run cancelled 

Muck-Suck is a charity event supporting myTEAM TRIUMPH – Wisconsin Chapter (mTT), a human service organization that enriches the lives of those with diverse abilities through a teamwork approach of endurance athletics. The Wisconsin Chapter is one of 30+ chapters of the international organization.  mTT brings people of diverse abilities together to train for and participate in road races and triathlons of all different distances.

From the start of planning, our goal was to provide a safe and community enriching experience for all involved and to use the event to educate the public about the path.  As the event neared, a group of residents expressed opposition to the use of the path for our event.  Their main concern was that the event could damage the historic path.  We worked tirelessly with residents and public officials to explore ways we could continue with the event.

Due to these growing concerns, we believe the best solution will be to cancel the event.  However, we are still planning on hosting a celebration in Elm (Library Park) at 11am on Sunday, May 28th to educate the public about the mission of myTEAM TRIUMPH and the programs we offer to enrich the lives of people with diverse abilities in the Lake Geneva area.  Free food and refreshments from Simple Cafe will be available to all who attend!

We at myTEAM TRIUMPH apologize to all who have registered for the event as well as Lake Geneva area residents who had concerns.  Through this process, we have learned of the vastly differing opinions of how the lake path can be used.  It is our hope that this situation prompts local residents to come together for a broad and inclusive conversation about the path usage.

We would like to thank our sponsors, public officials and Lake Geneva residents for their support

Along with our apologies we will be offering refunds to all participants who would like one and inviting them to come to our celebration
