Dirt Dash brings nearly 200 people to Camp Alexander

The challenge was tougher. The obstacles were more numerous.

But the thrill of defeating the Nitty Gritty Dirt Dash course was just the same as last year -- and over 180 people went to Camp Alexander for the second annual warrior run.


Emporia State student Hannah Rosenwald of Overland Park participated last year and was glad to take part again this year.

The event raised awareness and money for the Children's Champions Network consisting of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Alexander and Emporia Child Care. Big Brothers Big Sisters Director Andrea Landgren:

Proceeds will be split among the groups' various needs. Participation numbers were almost identical with last year, but course designer Joel Dixon added several new features, including more tires and crawling through a wet trench under a bus.
