Many exercises are rooted in everyday activities, such as walking up the stairs or punching a heavy sand-filled bag that’s in your way. Get prepared for a very muddy foyer with this Groupon.
- $40 for entry in the Benjamin Dash mud run and scavenger hunt (an $80 value)
On Saturday, November 2, Benjamin Dash participants will slog through a muddy 5K course—all the while earning and searching for special flags. The flags have monetary value, and some are tied to challenges while others are buried or otherwise hidden. At the end of the race, runners redeem their flags for cash, which they can keep or donate to a charity. For more information, see the race FAQs.
The Benjamin Dash is all about the Benjamins—but there's no cash on the mud-drenched race course. Instead, the 5K route is dotted with special flags, which participants redeem for money at the finish line. Some flags can be won through roadside challenges, such as sprint races or bus pulls. Others are buried in the mud and can only be found by digging or by mopping the course terrain clean.
Participants not only strive to collect flags, but they struggle to keep them. During the race, charity warriors roam the course trying to steal flags for their nonprofits. However, selfless-minded racers can donate without submitting to robbery; they can also choose to donate some or all of their flag earnings at the finish line.
