The Dirty 30


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Let’s be real: running can be kinda boring. Unless you’re running through a muddy obstacle course like the one in The Dirty 30, the filthiest (and most entertaining) 5k challenge Oklahoma has to offer. The craziness begins at 9 a.m. and runs (literally) into the early afternoon at Canyon Creek Ranch, 3905 E. County Rd. 66, in Mulhall, just north of Guthrie. Admission is free for observers, and registration is $35 for kids and $75 for adults. Visit dirty30race.com.
