Dream Factory's Dirty Dash 5K This Weekend In Greenville

If you're looking for a 5K with a twist, this is it.

The Dream Factory of Eastern Carolina is hosting what's being called the Dirty Dash 5K.

The run is a cross country obstacle course at the Bicycle Post mountain bike trails, just outside of Greenville, with 15 obstacles.

Organizers with The Dream Factory say, "This isn't a race, it's a fun, camaraderie and team building exercise. You can sign up as an individual but, it's even more fun as a team. There aren't any timers because it's just a completion exercise. Most importantly, you get to have fun helping us raise money to grant dreams for the kids that wish they could run but, they can't because of their illness."

Some of the obstacles include eight-foot-walls and an ice water puzzle made from a dumpster.

The event is Saturday, May 3.

Runners can sign up online and register to start the race from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
