About

Run Dirty is a BahamaHealth Wellness Initiative.

2015 was an amazing year for BahamaHealth! We set the trend by introducing RUN DIRTY! Run Dirty is an innovative wellness initiative and a fun endurance event that is certain to become a mainstay in the Bahamas. Run Dirty hosted 250 participants in its inaugural year last year and for this year, we are expected to more than double this number. The event includes a 5 mile run with more than 20 obstacles throughout the race and is focused on encouraging health living, vibrant exercise, team comradery and group participation.


Run Dirty will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 6:00am.

The race course will begin and end at Fort Charlotte. Participants have the option of walking or running the route and the most exciting part is the chance to RUN DIRTY.
