Please read this as it contains information about the run!!
On Sunday we would request that you get to Cedarbarn 30 minutes before the start of your wave. This is to make sure that you have time to park and visit the registration tent to sign your life away and to receive your number.
Your number will be written on you either on your arm, leg, head, wherever it will be visible. This is for two reasons, one being so we know you made it round the course and haven't wandered off towards Thornton le Dale, and the other reason is that there will be a photographer on site taking snaps on the obstacles and these will be made available to you to purchase after the event.
Bring a towel and a change of clothes! It may be the hottest May ever, but there will still be mud and water around the obstacles, so make sure you have something to change into.
If you have friends or family coming to spectate they are welcome and there will be a bouncy castle for children as well as the Barns play area and miniature train! There are also food and drinks available on site, along with cider for those of you wanting to get an early start.
Look out also for the raffle which contains some fabulous prizes and is definitely worth a go.
10 minutes before your race begins there will be a safety briefing and warm-up near the start line and then after that it's up to you!!
Remember that this whole event is for two amazing charities and that our main aim for everyone to get out there and have fun!
The Dirty Dash is all set to be run/climbed/crawled by you on May 28th, but there are a few things that you may need to know...
Parking is available on site accessed via the Cedarbarn regular entrance. Marshals will be on site to guide you to the correct place, and the get out is nice and easy. In the event of heavy rain we will have an alternative car park near by and will let you know early on the day of the event.
Registration is near the start line. You will need to visit registration to fill in a waiver, and then when you hand that to the marshal, you will receive your race number...via a marker pen...onto your skin.
Baggage can be left at registration.
Toilets are available near the start area.
The Start and Finish line are next to each other so friends and family are welcome to come and watch. There is also opportunity to view various obstacles around the course.
Warm-ups are 10 minutes before each start time with a brief Health and Safety briefing and course guide, followed by a quick jump around to get your sweat on!
The course is more than 5km. There, I've said it. So no complaining when you pass the 5km mark and the end is not in sight! But it's all for a good cause so that makes it okay :)
The course is very well marshalled with someone to guide you at every twist and turn. There are also several first aiders on the course should any of you decide to do yourselves an injury.
Now if I've missed anything then I will no doubt add it to this page very shortly, hopefully with an overview of the actual course!!
