The Second Annual Out-Fit Challenge Mud Run Hits New York with Massive Success

LGBT Event Brings New Yorkers Together Again in Support of Family Equality: More than 650 Participants Got Muddy for a Cause

New York, NY, June 28, 2014 --(PR.com)-- LGBT focused 5k mud run, Out-Fit Challenge (http://out-fitchallenge.com), recently thrived in bringing New Yorkers together in support of family equality. The sporting event featured over 15 military style obstacles which included various elements such as mud, water and ice throughout the course. The event drew more than 650 participants who were ready and willing to get muddy for a good cause, including reality star and recording artist Sara Stokes. Sara Stokes is known for her roles in 2006's "YaDaDa Movie" and the 2002 ABC/MTV music reality series by P. Diddy, "Making the Band". The Michigan born songstress participated in the mud run to join the fight for LGBT family equality and took pictures with fans. This year's event took place on June 21st, 2014 at the Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center, 581 Route 17A West, Tuxedo, New York 10987 from 9 am to 5 pm with race waves beginning every 20 minutes. The LGBT sporting event is now officially sponsored Jack’d, a top gay men's chat and dating app available for free on the App Store and Google Play, as well as a NYC Pride Partner for 2014. This year’s New York event charity of choice was the Family Equality Council, which connects, supports and represents the LGBT community across the US.

“Our success with Out-Fit Challenge this year surely surpassed our expectations," begins Founder & CEO of Out-Fit Challenge, Tory Fitzgerald. "We were able to accomplish our mission by uniting our community through fun and competitive means. It's amazing to watch people who don't know each other cheering and providing extreme encouragement to one another while completing the 5K course.”

The sporting event featured obstacles such as the "Cherry Picker," "Is that Mud in Your Pants “and” Hello Sailor". Once participants reach the finish line they were then welcomed by a lively end of race after party. Out-Fit Challenge premiered with two very successful mud runs in Miami and New York in 2013. For 2014 they expanded their 5K cross-country trails to four cites chosen through a public online voting contest. The next cities on the list for Out-Fit Challenge include Reno, Nevada on September 20, 2014 followed by events in Boston, Massachusetts and San Francisco, California. Apart from putting on mud run sporting events, the organization aims to aid national and local charities that are making a significant difference in the lives of LGBT individuals across the United States such as the Family Equality Council.
