You said you’d never wear it again, but this event invites you to pull your tackiest dress or suit out of storage for a 5K obstacle course race through the mud. Don’t have anything terrible enough to wear? Pick one up on the cheap at DI or Goodwill. A portion of proceeds goes to Children’s HopeChest, a nonprofit dedicated to helping orpans worldwide. Wear running shoes, but skip fancy jewelry so you don’t lose it. Race is Saturday, August 3, 2013 in Salt Lake City at an undisclosed location.
