If you’re afraid of some dirt, this isn’t the event for you.

The Dirty Donkey Mud Run is fast approaching, as competitors weave their way through unique obstacles that challenges both fierce competitors and off-the-couch thrill seekers. The fun 5K event is August 18, where competitors will head to Spring Hill Winter Park and Oasis Resort to conquer obstacles over the extreme and hilly terrain.

“With Dirty Donkey Mud Run, we’re taking the normal 5K run, and throwing in extreme challenges to push our racers to their limits,” said race director John Ford. “The great thing about this race is that we’ll have the competitive racer that has trained for it, and the weekend warrior just out to have fun.”

About 1,500 racers will crawl thru mud, under barbed wire, shimmy thru tunnels, and climb over and under obstacles in an attempt to cross the finish line wet and muddy.

Live music, food and beverages will begin the celebrations following the competition.

Early bird registration is $68 until June 30, with the option to raise funds for the MS Society of Manitoba. Regular registration pricing is $79 per racer from July 1 to August 11.
