Fitness enthusiasts around the island will have a chance to put their endurance to the test this weekend. The Bahama Health "Run Dirty" Mud Run is all set for 6 a.m. Saturday, October 24 at Fort Charlotte. Individual registration is $45, and team registration is $40 per person. Some of the proceeds will be donated to the hurricane relief effort to help those affected by Hurricane Joaquin.
The race will take place on a five kilometer (three mile) course that includes a number of obstacles at the end of the race. The course will begin and end at Fort Charlotte, and participants will have the option of walking or running the route; at Junkanoo Beach, they have an option of entering or not entering the obstacle course. Some of the obstacles include the Beach Splash, the Tall Wall, the Tire Trail and the Belly Crawl.
Ahead of Saturday's race, Elite Fitness business development manager Ethan Quant is issuing a challenge to all other fitness clubs and teams around the island, stating that no club will be able to cross the finish line before them.
"There was a challenge issued by Terrell Major from the Major Changes Rehab Center, challenged me and the members of Elite Fitness, saying that his Major Changes team was going to destroy us at the race," he said. "That made me think, because I know that Elite Fitness is the top group in the country, and made me want to issue out my own challenge to all of the other fitness clubs out there. I want to see everyone out there because this is truly going to be the major fitness event of the year."
Registration forms can be picked up from Bahama Health or at Club One Fitness Centre. Those seeking more information are asked to visit the race website at www.bahamahealth.com/rundirty.
Sponsors for the event include Dasani, Sun Tee, EF Nation, Powerade, Major Changes Rehab Centre and Milo Butler Distributors.
