Course Description:

The Black Swamp Dash is our premier event for 2017. It will be a two day event, Saturday June 17th and Sunday June 18TH.

SATURDAY there WILL BE TIMING FOR ALL WAVES, with the 9 o'clock wave being reserved as an Elite wave for the serious OCR men and women racing for the best time (Anyone can sign up for the Elite wave). There will be special awards for top male and female from the Elite wave ONLY!
As for our course we believe that you sign up for an obstacle/mud run for the Obstacles and the Mud or you would just sign up for any old run. Our course consists of 3.2 miles and 26+, yes that's right 26+ obstacles, not counting the obstacle of the natural terrain. Although we have water, mud, and muck none of it is deep. There is NO swimming and we DO NOT allow diving of any kind.
The big difference in our course is that most obstacles, you can choose your own challenge. Here you can choose how far you want to push yourself. Our obstacles have a normal side and an Extreme side. If you're the Extreme athlete looking to push your limits or your the first timer just looking to get off the couch and try something new this is the course for you.

Aid Stations:

We will have two water stations on the course along with another at the finish line.
There will be two paramedics on site during the event with volunteers through out the course with radios.


Individual awards go to top male and top female from the Elite heat (9:00 am Saturday only).


Free admission for spectators.
Our course is 85% spectator friendly and can be viewed largely from the massive grandstands between the start and finish lines.
The course can also be viewed from several places within walking distance.
Spectators are always welcome at the after party to share in the excitement.


Parking is $10.00 per car and is handled by the Ottawa County Fair Grounds.
Parking is abundant and very close to the course and after party area.
Due to the proximity of parking there will be no bag check.

Post Party:

Post party (or as we call it ""party in the swamp"") starts the second you get out of your car.
The live DJ will get the mood started as you enter the course area.
Food vendors along with beer and other beverages will be on hand.
Grab an onsite campsite and let it rip through the night.


Our events are the whole package from live music to on site camping. The course is within walking distance of campgrounds or the parking lot. Food, drinks, and beer are located centrally.
Only saturday will be professionally timed run.
Once the race is over and it comes to giving us back some of the mud you were trying to take home we have dozens of washing stations and even a couple of changing cubicles.
Our participants must be at least 11 years old on the day of the race and a guardian must sign their waiver and be present.
Although we have water, mud, and muck none of it is deep there is no swimming and we do not allow diving of any kind!
