ENDURE THE DIRT 5K MACKS PRAIRIE WINGS STUTTGART ARKANSAS
Beginners to elite athletes are welcome to participate in the fourth ENDURE THE DIRT adventure race that’s mission is to raise money to motivate, encourage, and educate cancer patients and their caregivers.
ENDURE THE DIRT is a 5K mud run that consists of obstacles that are engineered to test your strength and tackle your fears. Located on the flat land of Stuttgart surrounding Mack’s Prairie Wings, this course is designed for a healthy individual to understand what a cancer patient endures daily. Fellow participants will be there to give you a boost and help you conquer each task, just as the cancer patient has their caregivers to help them tackle cancer.
NOW WE SPRINT VIRTUAL CHALLENGE 50 MILES OR MORE (JANUARY 1st 2022)
Marc Stringer started his cancer regimen with 25 radiation treatments and 5 chemotherapy treatments. This wasn’t the end. After his esophagectomy, he continued with chemotherapy treatments for 3 years. We can’t even begin to count how many rounds he received some being 2 types of drugs some being 3.
This is what many cancer patients have to ENDURE, rounds, and rounds of treatment. These treatments can bring side effects that are undesirable. They can literally make you so sick all you want to do is stay in bed.
The NOW WE SPRINT VIRTUAL 50 MILE OR MORE RUN begins January 1ST, 2022.
Why in January? Because of the weather. Cancer patients have to deal with extreme circumstances just like you may have to deal with extreme weather. We want you to be uncomfortable, just like cancer patients are uncomfortable every day while battling the dreaded disease.
The Virtual race is also a great way to get ready for Endure the Dirt. Enter your miles by Feb 28, 2022.
THE RETURN of the Mini Mudder
This year we are bringing back the popular Mini Mudder. This is a great way for kids who may be too small for our obstacles on the main course to still get down and dirty for cancer.
