$67 for a VIP Ticket Package ($135 Value)
With each VIP ticket package, racers receive a T-shirt, parking pass, entrance to the VIP tent, two raffle tickets, a pitcher of beer or soda, and entry to the corn-hole tournament. The race will be held on September 22. Choose from the following wave times:
- 12:30 p.m.
- 1 p.m.
- 1:30 p.m.
- 2 p.m.
- 2:30 p.m.
- 3 p.m.
Runners should check in one hour before their scheduled wave times. Organizers recommend that runners prepare by running one to five miles frequently, putting together a costume, and getting comfortable with mud on a personal level.
After donning absurd costumes and slathering on ample amounts of wet earth, runners at the 5K Disaster Dash take on an exhilarating series of mud-slickened obstacles. Waves of runners are released onto the course every 30 minutes to dance between spare tires, slide down mudslides, and crawl through mud bogs. Climbing walls, rope ladders, and balance beams also await, intimidating runners with treacherous names including Tornado Alley, Crater Climb, and Hail Storm. After making it through the course, runners enjoy a post-race party with beer, food, and music at the Survivor's Saloon.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis, whose volunteers often rush through harsh, dirty conditions of their own to deliver food, clothing, shelter, and comfort to those in need.
