If there's one thing Facebook is known for, it's breaking up happy marriages and inventing the Super Poke. If there's one thing New Mexico is known for, it's alien encounters and their invention of the Super Probe.
Avoid cyber pokes, broken homes, and alien abduction by diving headfirst into The Dirty Dash - the state's, nation's, and, heck, probably the galaxy's muddiest race.
Mud, much like a well-groomed beard, shields your face from harsh UV rays, the gaze of unwanted admirers, and effectively conceals years of untreated acne. Applied to the whole body, it can conceal you from extraterrestrials and put a sloppy smile all over your unwashed face.
So make some friends, knock down some enemies, save your marriage, and propel yourself through miles of intergalactic filth at The Dirty Dash New Mexico. You'll sweep past obstacles at every turn, and in the end, you might just overcome the greatest obstacle of all, heart disease.*

Race Day Info
Course Length: About 3.1 miles
Packet Pickup will take place on Thursday and Friday, August 29th and 30th from 11 am to 7 pm both days. Location details coming soon.
We don’t want you to destroy your latest, greatest electronic devices during the race so we’ll have photographers from Flo-Foto present taking pictures throughout the race as well as at the finish line. Photos will be available a couple days after the race for pretty ‘durn’ affordable prices and are searchable by bib number or last name. Click HERE to go to their site.
If you want to go it alone, we recommend a good buddy trotting along side you, a zip lock bag to keep your camera safe and mud free, and slow shutter speeds.
Let’s be frank: your shoes are going to be a muddy mess after the race and if you want to do some good rather than taking hours with a toothbrush to clean them off, don’t even bother cleaning them one bit cuz our charities will be accepting shoe donations by the showers. All of these shoes will be used to help the less fortunate in the US and in developing countries.
The Piglet Plunge will be the highlight of your child's summer, their storied running careers and potentially their existence to this point. They must be over age 2 and under age 12 to run in the kids' race and you’ve got to accompany them the whole way.
The Piglet Plunge will be about 1 mile and will include some of the best obstacles to ensure a thoroughly muddy child: the Slop n' Slide, the Hog Wash and the Pig Sty. All children must be respectful of other children, pushing or splashing will result in being removed from the kids' race area for the day and subject to grounding at their parents’ discretion.
You’ll need to sign a waiver for them before they receive a sweet Dirty Dash Tattoo (temporary of course) to show that they can participate on race day. The Piglet Plunge will begin at 3:00 pm (80 minutes after the final adult wave starts).
