A Note From the Goat

Yo Dirt Kickers,

You signed up to do this, what were ya thinkin’? Seriously, I’m proud of ya already! You are the few, the non wimps, those toein’ the line at DWD GNAW BONE!

We've been a polishin' the Gnaw Bone course up and y’all is in for a dandy good time! The course info might not make much sense to ya but not to worry, when we say go, just follow ribbons till ya finish!

My hillbilly friend Mike will have a couple Hogs roasted, pulled and ready to gnaw! Mike will also be makin' his Kick Butt Beans, with report beans that speak for themselves.  So, you 5K, 10K, half marathon, marathon, and fast 50K folks can finish, go freshen’ up, then join us for the hoedown. 50 milers will finish right into the party! Oh yeah, we do have a river at the finish if ya just want to splash off.

Join us for post race beer and a jammin’ band at the finish! Yee Ha!

Runnin' the ridges and readyin’ Brown County up, just fer you! The course is calling, start planning!

-- Head Goat, Swamp Dog, Trail Dog and the rest of the ever faithful hard workin’, Dirt Crew Litter.

Now a note from Randy Step, president of RF Events, just out of goat mode.

The dirt team is working day & night as we get closer to DWD Day. Our goal is to give you a running experience like no other. This race is more than special to all of us; it’s a passion, much like running itself.

I want to thank the Dirt Crew … the markers, the aid station & exchange crews, parking rats, finish line crew, data entry and every person who makes DWD what it is. It won’t come off perfect, it can’t, but we’ll be givin’ it a shot … The variables are many but the challenge of pulling it off  drives us to the core. (Please take this into account when you are lost, pissed off or get cold pizza or pig!)  

With a full calendar of great events out there, you chose ours and we thank you!

Yes, run fast and take chances but also look out for yourself and each other as we head into this great adventure,

--Randy Step, AKA Head Goat

Team Note: DWD Day is special and with some plannin’, you can make it even more stupid and memorable. Get the team theme going, it adds to the fun. Consider the shock factor when dreamin’ up the theme! Make that car a float. Blow us away with your imagination … Have fun!
