Operating as usual

Well, we need to have a bit of a chat.

One of the Wall grandchildren was given permission to have a PRIVATE party, and someone (not that grandchild) decided to announce this private event very publicly. This event is not, I repeat-IS NOT-open to the public. This is to be a small event for family and friends. If you are not invited by a Wall and your name placed on a guest list, you will not be allowed to attend. No exceptions. If your name is not on that list, you will be asked to leave at the gate. Do not contact us to ask to be added to the list-in fact, if your name was possibly on the list and you send us a message asking to be added, we'll remove your name. We don't want to be spammed with messages. Any of us, at all.

Don't get us wrong, we would love to invite each and every one of you and have a very public event. But, to our dismay, we still have to mind our P's and Q's to make sure we can still bring you events in the future.

Thank you for reading, I'll get off my soap box now.

For the past few years, Bear Swamp Mud Run has held a Christmas in July event supporting Allegan Fire District's Christmas Outreach Program. Due to COVID, there will not be a July Mud Run, therefore, no Christmas in July event.

There has been interest expressed from some of our Mud Family to do something to still contribute to this program. There is not an easy way to set up any kind of collection drive, especially considering the vast amount of area our Mud Family covers, so we are opting to host an online fundraiser. 100% of funds raised will go to support Allegan Fire District with their Christmas Outreach program.

If there is any desire to make donations in person, please contact us and we can make arrangements.

Thank you for your contributions for this great program.

God Bless,
Your Bear Swamp Mud Run Family

We just want to start by saying:

We miss you! 😢😢😭😭

That being said, we have some bad news. There will not be a July event.

With the current mask mandate (yes, we are aware that outdoor events do not always require them, but if we were to get a large crowd, we have to require them) PLUS the limit of how many people are able to attend an outdoor event, we are not able to comply.

We cannot risk the fines. We cannot risk losing our permits. If we want to continue this business, we cannot risk our ability to have this business.

All politics aside, there are still some health and safety concerns, but we felt we were prepared to handle them. With the added restrictions, we could not move forward.

As we've said in the past, we have all had to put our political and personal beliefs aside to make decisions that are best for our business. For those of you that know us personally, you know where we personally stand on these issues. We are stating now that we will not argue politics over this. We are aware there are other events occurring. Some of those events do not have the same restrictions we have to face.

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the further postponement of our 2020 season. While we had hoped that this weekend would start our season, the continuation of Governor Whitmer's stay at home order-along with the responsibility to keep our patrons safe-that is no longer an option.

This was not an easy decision for us to make. There are many factors that were weighed to come to this conclusion.

Our current plan is to announce a June date for our season opener, but we are still considering many options.

Thank you for your continued patience and support.

Stay healthy and safe,
Your Bear Swamp Mud Run family.

As many of you already know, Governor Whitmer has extended Michigan's Stay-at-Home order until April 30th, with restrictions for all business that cannot be considered essential. While, yes, our activity is outdoors, we do not fall under essential and are unable to operate under this order.

We are still in the process of making decisions moving forward, including the possibility of rescheduling and how that will look. Per our agreement with Allegan Township, we can only hold one event each month. We do not have plans to move the date of our May event, meaning our season opener currently stands as May 17th, unless the Stay-at-Home order is extended further.

A possible reschedule will happen in a future month that does not have an event scheduled. This is where our options are still being discussed. Thank you for your patience.

Stay safe and stay healthy-we want to see you when we can finally make some mud fly.

04/07/2020

Please bear with us. We will have a post soon on what will be happening with the upcoming April mud run. We want to make sure we have all details settled before making an announcement so that we can make sure you have all the information we can give you and also be able to answer any questions that may arise.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Chuck J. McGinnis
August 1, 1971 - November 13, 2019

Chuck J. McGinnis, 48, of Allegan, MI passed away Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at Allegan General Hospital. Born August 1, 1971 in Ionia, MI, he was the son of the late Leona (Jennison) McGinnis. Chuck worked more than twenty years at the Allegan County Fair and more recently for Scott’s Landscaping. He loved being outdoors hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and mudding. Chuck was a generous man who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. In spite of his sometimes-grumpy exterior, he truly loved being around
his family, many, many friends and his faithful companion, Dodge.

Chuck is survived by his children, Amanda Marjorie Ann
McGinnis and Dakota Frederick McGinnis; his siblings, James (Saphia) McGinnis and Dawn O’Neil; and his niece, Taylor McGinnis.

A memorial service will be held at a later date and details will be released once finalized.

Good Morning! We've been watching the weather, storms look like they will be cleared out by noon, and we have a high temperature in the low 80s! We're excited! We have mud AND we won't melt!

Sounds like the perfect day for a mud run. Who's coming?
