The Black Swamp Dash is our premier event for 2017. It will be a two day event, Saturday June 17th and Sunday June 18TH. Waves will go out every half hour starting at 9 a.m. with the last wave going out at 11 a.m.. Some participants are just looking to challenge themselves so there will be NO TIMING for Sunday's waves.

SATURDAY there WILL BE TIMING FOR ALL WAVES, with the 9 o'clock wave being reserved as an Elite wave for the serious OCR men and women racing for the best time (Anyone can sign up for the Elite wave). There will be special awards for top male and female from the Elite wave ONLY!

Race Cost
Early Bird Special $49.00 per runner/per event (Elite wave included)
1-Month out from race day only $59.00 per runner/per event (Elite wave also)
Race Day walk in's welcome at a $69.00 per runner/per event (Elite wave also)
​You cannot get a better obstacle course for the money and the experience will be PRICELESS!
A portion of every registration is donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio

As for our course we believe that you sign up for an obstacle/mud run for the Obstacles and the Mud or you would just sign up for any old run. Our course consists of 3.2 miles and 26+, yes that's right 26+ obstacles, not counting the obstacle of the natural terrain. Although we have water, mud, and muck none of it is deep. There is NO swimming and we DO NOT allow diving of any kind.

The big difference in our course is that most obstacles, you can choose your own challenge. Here you can choose how far you want to push yourself. Our obstacles have a normal side and an Extreme side. If you're the Extreme athlete looking to push your limits or your the first timer just looking to get off the couch and try something new this is the course for you. All participants receive a Race Jersey, custom medal, 1 free refreshment, and a lot of Black Swamp Mud to take home.

* Participants must be registered at least 10 days before the event to guarantee a race jersey *

Once done if you choose not to take home all the mud on you, we have dozens of wash stations. There will be live music, Food and ,drinks.

We also have a Black Swamp Dash Backdrop for that perfect photo to remember the fun. Make it a weekend and rent a campsite from the Ottawa County Fair Grounds located just feet from the course.
