Nothing in your life has prepared you for this because nothing HAS to prepare you for it.
Sailors don’t need boot camp to prepare them for shore leave. Some things just come naturally - like blaming communists for global warming , ensuring a life of bachelorhood by with your mom until you’re 42, and churning through miles of muddy filth at The Dirty Dash without training a day in your life.
Sign up for some mudslinging at The Dirty Dash and you’ll feel like you spent 2 hours on the side of the farm Old Macdonald didn't want you to see. It’s a blitzkrieg of filth...an unpurified mess that no amount of Brita filters can cleanse. You’ll run, slide, jump, and crawl your way through piles of slop so thick and dark, you’ll think you’ve wormed your way back into the comfort of your mother’s womb. Oh yeah, and it’s just the best time you’ll have all year. That’s all.
By the time you’re done, even Drano won’t unclog those pores.
We’re the Ellis Island of competitions. We take all-comers. Advanced of years? Consider this your rejuvenating mud bath. “More to Love?” That’s just more surface area for mud. Pagan or saintly? Bring an offering to the lords of mud - gold, frankincense, and mirth (Visa and Mastercard also work just fine).
In a race with more obstacles than Rainbow Road in Mario Kart, you won’t just slip on a banana peel, you’ll slide down 175 feet of a giant inflatable slip and slide. Instead of a turtle shell in the back, you’ll get a water balloon to the sternum. And instead of cramps, heat exhaustion, and shin splints, you’ll wind up with nothing but a big smile on your sloppy face.
We dream of a day when the Grand Coulee will be replaced by a pile of hand-packed mud, Rainier’s snow-capped top will turn a sloppy brown, and the Space Needle will only be used to measure the depth of the mud we spew forth.
Paint the town red? We say paint it brown. So get your friends and get your sloppy seconds at South Sound’s Dirty Dash.

Peak 7 targets youth who are underprivileged or have been labeled "at-risk". We provide a positive alternative to the typical behaviors and habits that youth in our society often fall into.
Peak 7 takes youth on whitewater rafting and kayaking, rock climbing, and backpacking trips to challenge them spiritually, mentally and physically, encouraging them to evaluate what they put their faith in. These once-in-a-lifetime opportunities have an immeasurable impact on the participants and promote all-around healthier lifestyles.
Peak 7 Adventures is a grassroots outdoor adventure non-profit organization aimed at taking young people into the wilderness to show them the wonder of God's creation. Wilderness adventures challenge participants to expand their horizons by fostering trust relationships and team building skills.
