Last year after the Rugged Maniac event in Cloverdale, BC, Canada, my husband and I decided to challenge ourselves and sign up for the Rugged Maniac X - this option allowed runners to complete as many laps of the 5km course as they wanted.
The DirtyBird Mud Run will be the World’s Highest Obstacle Mud Run and is limited to the first 3,000 competitors who will get to experience the Dirty Bird Mud Run theme “It’s all downhill from here.”
Charity Fick shares her and her husbands experience this past summer at the Dirty Dash in British Columbia, Canada. Find out if their superman and superwoman costumes game them superhuman skills on the obstacles.
The Dirty Dash racing series recently brought their 5k fun run to the New England area for the first time. Leading up to the event, a few other national races of similar ilk had fallen on tough times. The female only Dirty Girl race series, which held 50 events last year, cut that number in half for this year and recently cancelled a few upcoming races. The 5k Foam Fest that was affiliated with the same company as Dirty Dash also announced that they were closing its doors. This led to speculation on social media that the Dirty Dash race was in jeopardy. However, about a week before the scheduled event, we received an email with race logistics which quelled some of the fears.
“Human Movement is committed to providing the highest quality experience for all Dirty Girl participants,” said HMM CEO Jeff Suffolk. “While we are pleased to have saved these eight events, we understand the disappointment this may bring to participants of canceled events, and are working hard to present alternative options to honor the original registration.”
