Mud, sweat and cold beer: Dirty Dash rocks Bogus Basin

The music of Katy Perry calmed the nerves of the costumed thousands at Bogus Basin, Saturday morning. But, knowing what lay ahead, some of those of age elected to employ some stiffer relaxants – Keystone and Coors – to melt their popsicles.
Like thousands of others, Jeff and Kara Woodsford rose early and braved the road to Bogus for their first ever Dirty Dash – advertised as “The Muddiest Race on Earth.”
“Well, I’m bull—”
For language reasons, we actually can’t tell you the full name of Jeff’s costume.
“And this is holy—”
Or his wife’s. But you get the idea.
The Woodsfords began the day perky. But after six miles up and down through mud, muck and water, only one thing would ease their aches.
“Party,” Jeff said.
“Yup,” Kara said.
The Woodsfords and a throng of other little piggies left the resort’s base clean and nervous. But when they finished – having climbed, crawled, jumped, splashed and floundered through a series of muddy obstacles – they were digusting, dripping and oinking with satisfaction.
The Woodsfords told Today’s 6 News they aimed to finish. And that’s all: just finish.
Two hours in, we still hadn’t seen them. But when they did cross the line, we knew where to find them.
“A beer station,” Kara said.
“Yeah,” said Jeff.
