United Way of Greenbrier Valley will host its second annual Dirt Dash on Saturday, May 7, in the Greenbrier State Forest. The 5-mile trail run will raise funds and awareness for the United Way of Greenbrier Valley and the trail system of the Greenbrier State Forest.
Dirt Dash is five tough but beautiful miles through the Greenbrier State Forest in Caldwell. This is a hilly, mostly single track trail race. You will experience six different trails during this challenging adventure.
The run begins at 9 a.m. and pre-registration is available online at www.unitedwaygreenbrier.org/DirtDash for $25. The deadline to register at this price and be guaranteed a participant T-shirt is Friday, Apr. 22. Day-of registration will be $30.
Deva Wagner, Dirt Dash committee member and avid runner, says that the run is both beautiful and fun. “This year’s Dirt Dash will be especially nice in the forest this year because we’re having it in the spring. Runners will love this course.”
All race proceeds will benefit United Way of the Greenbrier Valley which works to advance the common good by focusing on education, income, health, basic needs, and literacy. The real power of United Way is its ability to bring together a whole community to make life better for all of us. United Way of Greenbrier Valley is doing just that, teaming up with regional partners, including school districts, local governments, area businesses, community advocates, local volunteers and others to make significant improvements in our area. With each of us bringing resources, ideas, expertise, and commitment to the table, we are creating powerful strategies that will result in measurable and lasting change in our communities.
