Runners get muddy to help conquer cancer
MILLVILLE, NJ – On a weekend where New Jersey Motorsports Park would usually be encompassed by the sounds of squealing tires and revving motors, this weekend was rather filled with sounds of splashing mud and joyous laughter.
All this was part of the annual Bill Bottino Mud Run against Cancer, a 4-mile course of mud and obstacles that would challenge even the most fit individuals.
Participants had the option to run solo, as a team of unlimited potential or as a competitive group of four. All this while working together to achieve one common goal, to reach the grand mud put at the end of the course.
So what reasons do you need to come out and spend the day splashing through mud and conquering obstacles? How about doing all this while helping in the battle against cancer. This year’s event brought in roughly 2,000 participants all patiently awaiting their turn to cross the start line and being their adventure.
Approaching the first wave of participants, the starting line announcer continued to say the following: ”Cancer isn’t something you can fight on your own. Help each other and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it. Have fun and get muddy.”

Bill Bottino Sr. was the late president and CEO of Bottino’s ShopRite chain of supermarkets and lost his battle with lung cancer in 2006.
At the conclusion of the day’s events the runners congregated, mud still dripping from some of their clothes, while a $75,000 check was presented.
