We receive a fair amount of news releases about 5k runs in the area, but this one caught my eye. On Saturday, Oct. 27, the "Dirty Beach Mud Run" will take place at the Thunder on the Beach Raceway in Rocky Point.
Participants of the run will have to complete an obstacle course, with some of the obstacles listed as hell hill, tormenting tunnels, muddy muck crawl and quick sand. Thirsty runners can stop along the way to get water, but beer and tequila shots will be available. (Maybe to make the course harder to complete?) Also included: plenty of swag, music, food and a "huge" after party.
Register at www.dirtybeachmudrun.com. Cost is $68 by Oct. 15 and $78 late registration. Good luck to those who enter.
