THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED
Because the world of fantasy is a vast one, the genre’s truest followers can’t be satisfied with just one narrow substratum of geek. That’s why so many fantasy freaks come out of the woodwork for all-inclusive fan cons. But, frankly, a few of you nerds out there could also use a little exercise. Enter Fitgeek’s Muddy Mortal, a 5K obstacle course and outdoor festival that combines a veritable witch’s cauldron of wizardry, zombies, Quidditch and mud for a weekend of optimum fantasy immersion. The day will have something for players and spectators alike, including a Merlin’s Alley marketplace, enchanting live music, kids’ competitions, broom races, gear demos and, for an extra charge, a limited-seating Saturday night “farm to fork” Fantastic Feast. Muddy Mortal runs from 3 p.m. Friday, August 11, through 3 p.m. Sunday, August 13, on the grounds of Colorado Off Road Extreme, 35500 County Road 190 in Agate. Registration packages range from $15 to $110, but you'd better act fast, as tickets are bound to sell out. Campsites are available; grab your broomstick and reserve yours at muddymortal.com.
