GEICO associates get muddy for Armed Services YMCA

Mud TeamGuest blogger: Alex Danoff

At the 14th annual Armed Services YMCA Mud Run in Norfolk, Virginia, last month, GEICO’s associates took to the mud like a pig takes to … well, mud.

GEICO served as title sponsor of the event, and 23 associates from the company’s Virginia Beach office entered the race, alongside 20 additional associates and their friends and family members who volunteered as race marshals and water station attendants. GEICO’s racers navigated the intense 5-mile course of sand, woods, water hazards, obstacles and mud pits to win both first and second place in the team competition— a first in the event’s history.

The race, held at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, is one of the largest military events in the Hampton Roads area. Proceeds benefited Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads, a military charity devoted to nurturing the well-being of the Hampton Roads military community and all five branches of service.

Winning the top spots reportedly guaranteed GEICO’s teams first dibs on the showers, which you can be sure their friends and family members greatly appreciated.
