Big Diry Run 2018. Mud, Run, Fun!
Posted by Amanda Schauer | Friday, October 19, 2018
The Big Dirty Run in Suncadia was back and bigger and dirtier than ever! Participants ran, jogged, or walk through muddy trails, a mud pit, and through an obsticle course to get to the finish line. Here's everything you need to know about the Big Dirty Run to be prepared for next year!
Check-in is at Nelson Farm in Suncadia Resort. It is recommended that you check-in at least half-an-hour before the race begins to avoid the lines. Participants who registered online get checked off a list, are given a complementary Big Dirty Run T-Shirt, and a number to pin onto their shirt. Participants that need to get registered pay $30 to get signed up. Any participants wishing to get a beer at the end of the race are required to show their ID and get a wristband to confirm they are over 21.
The run is about as long as a 5k. Once the race began, participants ran through a downpour of water from a fire hose, through a mud pit and over a balance beam. Once they crossed the beam they went through a second mud pit, army-crawled under an obstacle, hopped over two hurtles, and over a wall. Then participants raced through the beautiful Suncadia trails, eventually looping back around to the obstacle course again to cross the finish line. Participants are not required to participate in any of the obstacles if they don't want to.
After the Race
Once participants finish the race they are given a Kind Bar, a beer from Dru Brew (if you're over 21. If you are under 21 you get root beer), and a commemorative mug. Then participants can choose to enjoy the Harvest Festival, happening right next door!
- Wear disposable clothes! You will get extremely muddy.
- Stay warm! Running through water and mud in October can get a bit chilly. Make sure you bring whatever you need to stay warm during the run.
- Wear comfortable shoes. The trail is fairly hilly.
