Dances With Dirt Extreme Trail Run Comes to Brown County This Weekend

May 9, 2016

One of the toughest trail runs around is slated for Saturday, May 14 in Brown County. Dances With Dirt Gnaw Bone will lead daring runners on several courses across the hilly Hoosier landscape in what is sure to be the race of a lifetime.

A day of extreme outdoor fun, Dances With Dirt includes various races within the Brown County State Park, each with its own set of unique challenges designed to test even the most avid runner. Dances With Dirt’s 10K features 6.2 miles of insane terrain. From uphill climbs to dashing through rivers, this is one course that will have participants begging for mercy…and for more. Dances With Dirt is a true measure of human endurance that will leave runners tired but totally satisfied and filled with pride.

There also will be 13.1 mile, 26.2 mile, 50K (31 mile), and 50 mile races along the beautiful, but wickedly hilly hiking and mountain biking trails in the Brown County State Park. Dances With Dirt will even feature a five person, 100K relay event, with each runner putting in approximately 12 miles each.

After a hard day of work, runners will be treated to a post-race celebration at Mike’s Music and Dance Barn. A delicious BBQ dinner will pair perfectly with a cold craft beer, sponsored by local favorite Big Woods Brewery/Quaff ON! Brewing. Post-race festivities will take place from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Runners can register online or during check-in on May 13 or May 14. Participation costs and race times vary depending on course distance.
