The Continental Divide has torn apart more families than Thanksgiving, wild dogs, and Family Feud combined. Mend some fences, bond with estranged friends and family, and let mud heal your gaping emotional wounds at The Dirty Dash Colorado Springs.
Though you're more than welcome to brave the course alone, just like therapy and hugs, it's better in groups...and it generally ends with tears of joy muffled in your best friend's meaty shoulder.
Leave your golf pants and tennis skirts at home - there ain't no etiquette here. We despise proper grammar, clean bodies, and good hygiene. Instead of a polite golf clap, we expect a bellow that will shake Pike's Peak. Instead of freshly-lotioned, clean-shaven faces, we expect beards, 'staches, and mutton chops...except for the ladies. And if you even think about ending a sentence with a preposition.....wait, no...that one's OK.
You've proven by living in Colorado that you defy basic laws of biology: you don't need oxygen to function. Now defy the basic laws of running and relationships: push your friends in the mud, drag their names through it, and sling it like your favorite Congressman. The Dirty Dash will take you and your friends to a Rocky Mountain High that doesn't require an intervention or a visit from a friendly DEA agent...but don't blame us for the withdrawals when you're done.
Packet Pick-up details will be available 2 weeks prior to the race date. It is important to pick up your packets (race bib, t-shirt, bandana, decal, and tattoo) prior to race morning because lines can get a little out of control and you don't want to miss your wave time do you? Do you?
Race Day Info Packets will be posted 2 weeks before the race with tons of info on parking, what to wear, and how to clean mud out of your most sensitive areas.
Photos will be available a few days
after the race at Flo-foto.
Book your rooms at www.hotelelegante.com and use group id 844564 or call the hotel at 800-981-4012 and ask for “The Dirty Dash” or reference group code 844564.

At the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region, our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Our vision: the YMCA is the leader in improving the quality of life and nurturing lifelong development of healthier individuals, families and community. We make a positive impact for kids, families, and our community.
Being healthy means more than being physically active. It's about maintaining a balanced mind, body and spirit. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it's not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. We are a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurture the potential of kids, promote healthy living and strengthen community. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. Thanks to the generosity of those who donate to our Community Support Campaign, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region has never turned anyone away regardless of income.
