One of the best parts of getting dirty at our dash is overcoming literal and figurative obstacles with your team of friends.  Below we have the top tips to create the most epic team name.

*Involve the Whole Team

Unlike that time your parents lost all creativity and named you boring old “Emily”, you have a say in what title you’ll go by. Make sure it’s something the whole team can love and get behind.  You’re gonna need to be a united front if you wanna have a prayer of getting over that wood wall.

 

*Incorporate An Innuendo

Why an innuendo? Because they’re fun, a little sneaky, and you won’t be too embarrassed to repeat them in from of any little ones.

 

*Think of Something the Whole Team Has In Common

You’re probably a team because you all have something in common.  Well, tell the world what it is! Whether your team consists of co-workers, AA Sponsors, High School Bff’s, family members, or anything else, there’s a name there and we wanna hear it.

 

*Use the Internet

Hey we’re all busy, so maybe you don’t have a billion hours to think of a team name.  That’s where the Internet comes in.  No judgement here if you Google “running team names” and plagiarize your favorite.  Or have Wu Tang do the work for your whole clan here: http://www.mess.be/inickgenwuname.php

While the name “Frogs on a Log” is reminiscent of a delicious pre-school snack centered on celery and peanut butter this obstacle is no child’s play.  These logs were made for over and under ducking, jumping, climbing, creeping and dancing with the end reward being shoes full of soft, squishy mud.  To have your chance at besting Frog on a Log and all the rest of our obstacles register here!

Dirty Dash 2013

 

Meet Dirty Dasher Lowery Johnson, who had always been overweight, even as a kid. In 2012 she started to work for a nutrition company, and eventually decided it was time to face her health issues and do something about her weight. Her company ran as a team yearly in the Dirty Dash so the first day of her weight loss journey started with the Dirty Dash in 2012. At 285 pounds Lowery anxiously made her way to the starting line with some of her co-workers. Even though she couldn’t run for even a minute straight, let alone climb a rope wall, she did her best and finished the 5K.

Over the course of almost a year, Lowery watched her diet and fell in love with running. When it was time to run the Dirty Dash in 2013 she was 100 pounds lighter and ready to kick ass. Finishing that race was much easier, and this time, she was actually able to run some of it! Since then Lowery has maintained her weight within about 10 pounds, continuing to make healthy and active decisions.
Lowery’s first Dirty Dash was intimidating, but made her realize she was capable of doing hard things, even if that hard thing was losing a lot of weight.She is planning on running the entire Dirty Dash this year and conquer every muddy obstacle in front of her.

No Wrong Way to Dirty Dash

After a full day of running up hills, hurdling over hay stacks, and navigating mud mines, getting to the Dirty Dash giant slide-aka The Rinse Cycle-is like manna from heaven for any runner. Not only is The Rinse Cycle a literal answer to many Dashers prayers, it is doing it’s part to solve the worldwide epidemic of runners taking themselves too seriously.

There’s no wrong way to make it down The Rinse Cycle; the classic slide form, superman this ho, or the more adventurous New Jersey turnpike (head down, behind up).  And just like your rinse cycle at home, ours will toss you around, then leave you fresh and clean, just in time for more filthy fun.

 

Undergarments Not Optional

DirtyDangler

While you may be tempted to look up “Dirty Dangler” on Urban Dictionary, trust us when we say this rope-based obstacle is the wholesome version of the term.  Our Dirty Dangler is a test of mind over body in the way that you must not mind having so many other bodies in your personal space.  And boys don’t forget your undershorts, because no one signed up to see that dirty dangler either.

Leave your skillet at home, Paula Deen, because our Bacon Bath doesn’t come with grease burns or clogged arteries.  It’s a foam-filled playpen that will cover your body in fresh, virginal white foam just in time to rebury yourself in the muck.

So grab your loofa and lather up, but be warned even the Bacon Bath won’t clean you DIRTY britches. Think you’re filthy enough? Find your race HERE!
