Dirty Dash Recap

This last Saturday I teamed up with my sister, her husband and her husband’s sister to run the Dirty Dash 10k in Soldier Hollow.

We got there about 8 and our wave started at 9. Plenty of time to get cold and get pumped! And watch them spray cold water over all the obstacles…

Once we started, it was a mess. Shocking, right? In the first 30 seconds I got a nice wad of mud in my mouth. I knew I was in for a treat!

There were various obstacles you went through, starting with some mud pits up to your waist that you had to climb through. Then there were some tunnels, followed by some walls to climb over.

There were plenty of hills to run up between obstacles. I guess that makes sense since we were in the mountains…

To get to the finish line you had to wade through two more big pools of mud. I guess a little mud never hurt anyone…

Afterwards we attempted to clean off in some hot warm showers. It was definitely like no other race I’ve ever done…but it was still a good time!
