Danville Gets Ready for Dirty Dan Dash

Danville, VA-- If you're looking for an opportunity to get down and dirty this weekend when it comes to your fitness, you have a chance this Saturday.

The Danville Regional Medical Center is sponsoring the first annual Dirty Dan Dash. There will be obstacles, off-road running and of course lots of mud.

It all starts at the Community Market at 11am. Organizers have already started setting up for the race and they say they're excited to bring this kind of obstacle race to Danville.

"Mud runs and fitness runs, they're the big things right now," said representative from Parks and Recreation, Russell Carter. "We have a lot of people that travel out of state, they go to New York, South Carolina, so we just wanted to bring something here for everybody."

The registration deadline is at midnight. If you'd like to join in on all the fun, you can sign up here.
