Have you ever said to yourself, “marathons are too easy and triathlons are for sissies”?
Well, we haven’t either… those races are hard. Think about it: the first person who ran a marathon died. HE DIED. And I bet he didn’t even have any fun along the way, either!
We’re introducing the best race in town: The Dirty Dash. This race puts all others to shame.
The Dirty Dash proves that anyone can “Play Dirty.” This filthy 5K empowers couch potatoes and athletes alike to put on their running shoes. You don't have to be tough to play dirty - it's the mud run for everyone! Our sloppy mud pits, slip’n’slides, and foam baths are prep’d for even more filthy fun than ever before. 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 to the end!
Let this obstacle run be your new guilty pleasure. Come solo or find a few of your dirtiest, filthiest, uncouth friends to join. Regardless, you’ll be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say “I am a Dirty Dasher!” …and then immediately adopt a baby pig of your own.
Location: Soldier Hollow
Address: 2002 Soldier Hollow Lane, Midway, UT 84049
Gates Open: 8:00am, first wave at 9:00am & last adult wave is at 1:00pm
Piglet Plunge: 2:00pm
All piglets registered for the Piglet Plunge will receive a wristband at packet pickup, they must be worn to gain access to the course. Parents are encouraged to run with their kids too, but don't need to purchase a ticket for themselves!
The Piglet Plunge is a separate event from the regular 5k. If you would like your kids to run with you on the main course you must upgrade to a regular 5K entry.
Packet Pick Up: In order to shorten your wait time on event day, we are opening a packet pick-up day for participants to check in a day early, and get their gear. It's not required to pick up your packet on Friday, but it's highly suggested. No one wants to wait in line for check-in on event day.
Please bring your smart phone or print your ticket in order to pick up your packet. Anyone (runner or not) can pick up your packet for you—they’ll just need your printed ticket. If you are picking up for a team, please bring tickets for everyone on the team.
Packets can be picked up on Friday September 13th from 11am-7pm at the Scheels store in Sandy. We will be upstairs in their training rooms near the elevators.
Scheels address: 11282 South State Street Sandy, UT 84070
Parking: All cars parking at the event on Saturday will be required to pay $10. There will be a VIP parking lot for $20.
Parking passes will be sold on Friday at packet pickup, with a quick lane on Saturday for those who already have a pass.
We really would prefer to see carpooling to protect the environment and to save your hard-earned cash.
There will be food & snacks available at the multiple concession stands so bring your cash money!!

Garbage sack or sheet to put on your car seat for the drive home
