The Charity Challenge Distance Counts Fitness Challenge
Due to the restrictions placed on large social gatherings because of the current Covid-19 outbreak, we have reluctantly made the decision to cancel this year's Down 'N Dirty Dash 5K Mud Run.

In its place, we ask you to join us in The Charity Challenge Distance Counts Fitness Challenge
It is virtual event, where you decide when, where and how far you run, walk, hike, or crawl! 
Because the circumstances that inspired this event are the result of Covid-19, we made the 
number 19 a significant component of how things will work. You may complete this event anytime between 19:00 hrs (7:00 pm) on May 19 and 19:00 hrs (7:00 pm) on June 19, 2020. The entry fee is $19. Every registered participant will be granted 1 entry into our prize drawing which will take place the day after June 19. For every multiple of 19 miles completed, you will earn another entry into the prize drawings and for every multiple of $19 that you raise, you will earn another entry into the prize drawings. Fundraising is absolutely encouraged and you can follow the RunSignUp steps to creating your own fundraising page and reaching out to your friends, families and co-workers to ask for donations in honor of your participation! The more you raise, and the more distance you tally up, the more help we can offer to our awesome charities below and the more chances you have to win great prizes! We have gift certificates to popular local establishments like Neon Chicken, The Hair Stop, Filomena's, Scott's Quality Meats & Deli, Love Bites, Camp Dog, Fiddleheads, Crown Pizza and more!!  
The miles completed do not have to be run on the same day, you have a whole month to clock up as many miles as you feel able to complete. Just keep a record of the date, time and distance of each run that you can total and send to us at the end of the challenge. In the meantime, feel free to post your selfies, hashtag away and get some friendly competition going!!  A cash prize of $200 will be given to the person completing the most miles. In the event of a draw, the award will be given to the runner who has raised the highest donation total. A cash prize of $200 will be given to the person who raises the most money OVER $500. In the event of a draw, the award will be given to the participant who has completed the most miles. If you have any questions about the event or the steps to fundraising, 
please feel free to contact us! Registration will remain open until June 12.
