This next event I can honestly say is one of the dirtiest, but at the same time one of the most exciting events--it's called the 17th Annual Volkslauf Mud Run and WLOX Reporter Michelle Lady and I literally got down and dirty for the race last year.

Here's what you need to know if you go: it's a four mile trail filled with mud and water. You'll have to go through dry obstacles, a water slide and mud hills. This event is open to the public. In order to attend you must have a valid license and vehicle insurance. Registration and check-in begins at 6:30 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday
