The most important measure of the YMCA is the impact it has on the lives of the people and communities it serves. By growing and changing to meet the current needs of our community, we have be able to ensure that everyone finds a place of welcome and belonging at the Eugene Family YMCA. We are an organization that builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities. Through our staff, programs, seven childcare sites throughout the community, the YMCA positively impacts people of all ages, races, faiths and economic backgrounds. The purpose of our Y is to provide life-enriching, learning opportunities to people of all generations and walks of life. All Y activities seek to create a safe, loving, fun environment which fosters spiritual, emotional and physical growth.
Have you ever said to yourself, “Marathons are too easy, and Triathlons are for sissies?”
We haven’t either…those races are really hard. Think about it…the first person to run a marathon actually died. HE DIED!...and he probably didn’t even have fun along the way!
Well, welcome to a new kind of race: THE DIRTY DASH. This race that puts all other races to shame. The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine.
You’ll need endurance to trudge up mountains of sludge, courage to overcome uncompromising obstacles, a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end!
So let this mud run obstacle course become your new guilty pleasure. Go solo or with some of your dirtiest, filthiest, & uncouth friends. Either way, you’ll be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am a Dirty Dasher!”… and then proceed to clean yourself off.
