The Sterling House Down and Dirty 5K Obstacle Race is a family-friendly community-wide event. There is a little bit of FUN for everyone. IT IS totally for "The Average Joe" looking to have a great time. You WILL NOT be timed and the only person you will be competing against is yourself. Go at your own pace. No need to rush!
Run, walk or crawl your way to the finish line - as you get sweaty, sandy, dirty and wet along the way! Best of all you are in it to win it for Sterling House. All proceeds will benefit our programs and services including camp, sports and preschool scholarships, as well as, food for those families and children experiencing food insecurity.
*Our first priority is the health and safety of our community. All programs and events are subject to change if needed.
