DWD Hell

September 26

dwdhellWhat is DWD, besides one a those ak-row-nims for Dances With Dirt?

You must be livin' in a cave if ya ain't heard of the DWD Relay and Ultramarathons! I'll tell ya what it ain't, it ain't no place for wimps and it ain't a place for pansies, "don't get my shoes dirty" runners afraid of a few roots and cliffs.

Dances With Dirt 5 Person Team Relay (Green Swamp, Gnaw Bone and Hell)

5 Person Team Relay, each member running 3 of 15 legs. Each leg averages 4 miles so over the course of a day, each runner covers around 12 miles. Teams drive a vehicle to the next exchange and the fire drill continues ...

An extreme course, team themes, vehicle decorations, costumes and endless planning are the back drop for an adventure that adds up to much more than its parts.

Each leg has or will become legendary. Legs from the Hell event with names like "This Sucks", "Where's the F'n Bridge" and "The Stupid Leg...Lake" have become part of a running legend. Each leg is described and rated in difficulty so the team can meet beforehand and choose who to abuse ... we mean, who to run what. Basically, a difficult, wicked on and off trail run with stupid spots. Stupid spots include swamp crossings, river crossings, hills too steep to climb and can only be a butt slide down. Did we mention poison ivy, thorns, poor marking, bad (no) footing, a waiver that mentions your death 3 times and that we charge you for this?

The 5K and 1 mile course meanders through a beautiful wooded setting on one of northern Michigan’s favorite hiking, biking and ski trails during peak fall colors. It is a relatively flat run/walk with some rolling hills.
