August 21st


Join us for a day of getting dirty on our beautifully muddy course at Wildlife West Nature Park for the Alburquerque event!

The Dirty Dash proves that anyone can “Play Dirty.” This filthy 5K empowers couch potatoes and athletes alike to put on their running shoes and make some fun for themselves. You don't have to be tough to play dirty - it's the mud run for everyone! Our sloppy mud pits, slip’n’slides, and foam baths are prep’d for even more filthy fun than ever before.

Location: Wildlife West Nature Park - 87 N Frontage Rd, Edgewood, NM 87015

  • Sorry, but no spectators will be allowed at the event. Participants only.
  • The kids only run, The Piglet Plunge, will not take place this year.
  • All staff & volunteers will wear masks at all times.
  • Masks for participants are required from the time you leave your vehicle until the time you return to your vehicle. The only exception is that you may remove your mask while actively participating on the course, though we do highly recommend that you continue to wear your mask even on the course.
  • Please respect physical distancing at all times. Six feet minimum distance between participants, but even further is better when possible.
  • There will be hand sanitizer available throughout the site and on the course.
  • Toilets and facilities will be cleaned periodically throughout the event.
  • You will not be allowed to arrive more than 45 minutes before the start time indicated on your ticket. We strongly recommend that you arrive already dressed in your running gear.



In order to shorten your wait time on event day, we are opening a packet pick-up day for participants to check in a day early, and get their gear. It's not required to pick up your packet on Friday, but it's highly suggested. No one wants to wait in line for check-in on event day!

Please bring your smart phone or print your ticket in order to pick up your packet. Anyone (runner or not) can pick up your packet for you—they’ll just need your printed ticket. If you are picking up for a team, please bring tickets for everyone on the team.

Packets can be picked up on Friday August 20th from 11am-7pm at the venue.



We really would prefer to see carpooling to the event to help protect the environment. So please... CARPOOL, CARPOOL, CARPOOL!
