Distance & Course Length:
Organizer:The Dirty Dash Have you ever said to yourself, “Marathons are too easy, and Triathlons are for sissies?” We haven’t either…those races are really hard. Think about it…the first person to run a marathon actually died. HE DIED!...and he probably didn’t even have fun along the way! Well, welcome to a new kind of race: THE DIRTY DASH. This race that puts all other races to shame. The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine. You’ll need endurance to trudge up mountains of sludge, courage to overcome uncompromising obstacles, a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end! So let this mud run obstacle course become your new guilty pleasure. Go solo or with some of your dirtiest, filthiest, & uncouth friends. Either way, you’ll be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am a Dirty Dasher!”… and then proceed to clean yourself off.

Whether you're Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, Rastafarian or Buddhist, at the end of The Dirty Dash you'll all have to confess to God that you're a filthy mess in need of forgiveness.
Your whole lives you've been told what you can't do: Don't run with scissors, don't sneeze or your heart will stop, don't "mess with Sasquatch," don't sell WMDs to the Ayatollahs. Well it's time to throw away your tissues, dump your Adderall down the toilet and break all the rules.
This race that puts all other races to shame. The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine.
You’ll need endurance to trudge up mountains of sludge, courage to overcome uncompromising obstacles, a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end!
So let this mud run obstacle course become your new guilty pleasure. Go solo or with some of your dirtiest, filthiest, & uncouth friends. Either way, you’ll be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am a Dirty Dasher!”… and then proceed to clean yourself off.
So dress-up like a fool, act like a buffoon, finance revolutions, and run like no one's life depends on it... but please don't sell WMDs to the Ayatollahs. They probably got that one right.
By the end of this race you'll be seeing the world through muddy eyes, and believe us, it's brown, and it's beautiful.
The Piglet Plunge will be the highlight of your child's summer, their storied running careers and potentially their existence to this point. They must be over age 2 and under age 12 to run in the kids' race and you’ve got to accompany them the whole way.
The Piglet Plunge will be about 1 mile and will include some of the best obstacles to ensure a thoroughly muddy child: the Slop n' Slide, the Hog Wash and the Pig Sty. All children must be respectful of other children, pushing or splashing will result in being removed from the kids' race area for the day and subject to grounding at their parents’ discretion.
You’ll need to sign a waiver for them before they receive a sweet Dirty Dash Tattoo (temporary of course) to show that they can participate on race day. The Piglet Plunge will begin at 3:00 pm (80 minutes after the final adult wave starts).
There’ll be water stations on course and at the finish line. We have several EMT's stationed around the course to make sure any boo boo is taken care of.
Not only can they come and watch for FREE, but they can buy water balloons at our Hog Wash obstacle and give you the pummeling you’ve been begging for since grade school. And you’ve got to thank them for it because ALL the proceeds go right to charity. There’ll also be some great grub, some sweet swag from our sponsors, and some epic mud pit swan dives that they won't want to miss!
Parking for The Dirty Dash will be at lots at the Botanic Gardens. Parking attendants will direct you where to park. Plan on arriving at least 45 minutes to 1 hour early to avoid parking or traffic issues and for as much as you love gas prices, we strongly recommend CARPOOLING—PLEASE, PLEASE CARPOOL.
For those over 21 interested in making the trail a bit harder to follow, we’ve got the Beer Chug Obstacle (or root beer for those who don’t want to drink or who are under 21—either way, the foam goes straight to your brain).
HOWEVER, in order to get a beer when you get to the obstacle, you ABSOLUTELY MUST get a wristband at the event before your wave starts by showing your ID. No ID = No Wristband = No Beer.
If you are under 14 you must have your parent/guardian sign a waiver for you and run with you the entire race. if you are under 18 but older than 14 you can run with out an adult BUT must have a waiver signed by your parent/guardian. The age limit for the Piglet Plunge is 12 years old.
We will have a way for you to clean off—they may be cold showers with hundreds of other Dirty Dashers but at least you won’t have to worry about your car on the drive home. We offer a bag check area to all runners but don’t get the idea that this is your junior high school locker room-type situation. We’ll watch your stuff and do our best to keep it organized without hazing anyone, but we don’t have padlocks, lockers, or pictures of Justin Bieber taped up anywhere in the vicinity of The Dirty Dash. Sorry all you Beliebers.
Let’s be frank: your shoes are going to be a muddy mess after the race and if you want to do some good rather than taking hours with a toothbrush to clean them off, don’t even bother cleaning them one bit cuz our charities will be accepting shoe donations by the showers. All of these shoes will be used to help the less fortunate in the US and in developing countries.
Also near the mud pit, our charity partners will be selling water balloons as part of the Hog Wash obstacle. Buy a bunch and pummel your friends with them. They’ve been begging for it and how could you refuse them?
When you go to register, click the radio button that says, “Join Existing Team or Individual.” If your friends have already registered a TEAM, then type in the Team Name (every team name is unique) and the Team Captain’s Last Name. If your friend registered as an INDIVIDUAL and is now looking to make a team with you, type in the team name they created and their last name and it’ll put you on their team.
Each member of your team (anywhere from 2-100 people) runs the entire course and may encourage each other, mock each other, or drag each other over obstacles. If you run ahead of your team, you can wait for your slightly slower team members before the final mud pit where you can reunite as a team. Any team that does not have all team members finishing at the same time will be subject to public shaming. Rules for celebration are undefined. Feel free to clasp hands, smack bottoms, or open mouth kiss.
