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.

This was my first Dirty Dash with my family and I had a blast! The 5k went by so fast because we were having so much fun. It was even cooler to step out of our comfort zones and get super muddy and test your strength and ability.
See you next uear❣️❣️❣️

So much fun!!!

Fantastic mud run! We purchased our tickets way in advance and had no problems. The course was set up well with plenty of muddy obstacles throughout the entire run! My children (8 & 10) and I loved every minute of it. We can't wait to run it again next year! Thanks to all the volunteers for keeping things running smoothly!

Waste of money. Save your money and go to a real mud run. And, whatever you do, don't buy advance tickets for any dirty dash event! The management screwed over our team by changing the start times the week before the event... and then refused to reimburse is when it meant we were traveling for hours to make it, some people on our team even had to pay for cancelled flights. This event from the beginning has been poorly organized. I'm not one to write reviews but overall they changed the event location, start times, and then took over a week to get back to me after I asked for other options!! Then, MIKE insisted that we choose a different event - within the year- to attend. As if they hold multiple events in Oregon every year. We will not be attending this or any other Dirty Dash event. Some publicly traded company!! They need to work on their organization, planning, and their customer service. The event is this weekend and we've lost all our money .. and still won't be attending.

This was my first Dirty Dash. What a blast! Well organized. Loved the DJ. The obstacles were fun and very muddy. There were plenty of water guns at the end to get cleaned up too. I think registration should cover parking though. Anyway I loved it! I'm bringing large groups of people with me next year!

Nice work DD Utah!

Utah nailed it this year! This is an event for everyone, even beginners can do this course and love it! The obstacles were well put together and challenging but not impossible. There was plenty of mud to go around!

Bad this year!

This years dirty dash was a JOKE! For how expensive it is it should be much better. We did it last year in Eugene and had a blast but this year was not fun, we spent 45 minutes in line mid race to go down a slide that kills your ass at the end cause there's nothing but hard ground to land on with no warning. Most of the race was uphill so most people were walking and you couldn't get around them. Last year was more like an event not something put together at the last minute. We did Rugged Maniac a month before and it was so much fun and a lot more about the charity too. Dirty Dash didn't even want shoes like normal. Also last thing - $5 per digital picture really? Joke -

Disappointed but not Dissuaded

This year’s race and location weren’t great. It was full of gopher holes that could twist an ankle, was hot and dry and there was a malfunction in getting water to most of the obstacles. It also wasn’t well organized, so things like parking and water stations were insufficient. It was a bummer. But from what I understand this is highly unusual. I hear stories regaling the glory of past races and the fans seemed to remain loyal even after this one. This being my first race, and it falling so short of my expectations, I could not understand why people weren’t more outraged. I contacted customer service and was treated with the utmost respect and consideration. And you know, it’s funny what a little consideration can do for one’s attitude. I’ve attended other races in the past that were more organized and still had way less fun than this one. The obstacles were difficult yet doable and a blast (imagine if they had water?), and the racers are just a different breed. They are there to have fun and not trying to prove anything, except maybe to themselves. There is an indomitable spirit of fun and encouragement, and they even celebrate with a beer at the end. I can see the potential had things been properly set up. Even with all the complications, when I look back on the time it makes me smile, and I feel I was a part of something good; something bigger than just an obstacle race. It felt like family. I actually felt relieved that they took care of me with their customer service because I didn’t want to stay mad. I am going to reserve my judgment and I am even going to try again next year. Customer service goes a long way in my book and I can now see why so many past racers remain loyal. The race is about more than just having a good time. It’s about pushing yourself and doing the best you can and supporting each other in overcoming obstacles. It’s about unity. I know they moved the location this year to Avimor, and I think there must have been unforeseen complications. While the disorganization was more than disappointing, like with family, there are times when they fail you and you want to choke them out, but you don’t. You forgive and you go on and you support each other. And I think that’s what the dirty dash is really about for a lot of people. Not giving up.

Bogus Basin D.D. was great, what happened this year? The traffic situation was so dangerous and to end up paying $60 (with parking!) for a race with at least three obstacles we couldn't do because of lack of water, really terribly planned event. I had a great team and we had a hoot of a time but are very disappointed and not really excited about getting up a team next year unless the location is moved. The slide was great fun but the gravel at the end was a real mine field with lots of bloody injuries. I don't think that was necessary, needed a better landing there. You can do better.
