Combine the whimsy of a color run with the filthy fun of a mud run and a festive dose of bubbles, and you've got the Sandia MX Moriarty - Mud 'n Color 5K. Participants of this fusion event tear across numerous motocross tracks as they're pelted with colored powder, soiled with dirt and mud, blasted with bubbles, and challenged to conquer creative obstacles. Various race waves let participants choose their level of competition—Extreme Runners compete in a timed race for prizes, Team Runners rely on the camaraderie of their group of five or more, and Fun Runners are simply there to enjoy the course and add to their troves of collectible mud samples. A portion of proceeds from this event go to support Albuquerque Christian Children's Home's efforts to house and protect neglected, abused, and abandoned children.
