#DirtyDash

It's just like any other trail race through the trails and rivers of Bechtel Park.  Except, at the end of the race is a 70 foot mud pit!  It's not a course to set a 3 KM or 6 KM personal best, but it will be your most fun trail race of the year!  

Check here for the dirty finish line pictures from last year's race!
