Since 2007, NM(X) is New Mexico’s PREMIER Youth Focused and Youth Driven Organization!! Bringing more than 16,000 Youth, ages 11 - 20, to Non-Traditional, Life-Long Sports and the Life-Long Skills of Creative Arts. ALL youth from ages 11-20 are welcome, regardless of income, ethnicity or background. We see ALL of today’s Youth “At Risk” No matter who they are!
Our surveys show that an overwhelming 90% of kids want to participate in the sports that NMX will represent, but only 20% are participating. However, there are currently few or no programs to solve this problem until NMX. NMX Sports will help overcome many obstacles that have prevented interested youth in participating in these sports. These obstacles include travel, proper supervision, cost and finding like-minded kids who enjoy the same lifestyle activities.
NMX Sports will provide a fun atmosphere and coordinate cool activities to help the kids enjoy their youth while taking advantage of all our beautiful state has to offer. Studies show that kids that are active in positive and constructive outlets are less likely to participate in delinquent behavior and in alcohol and drug use that is so common to today’s teens. We hope to give these kids the opportunity to become involved in activities that they desire to participate in and more importantly, we want to help to create better kids.
Have you ever said to yourself, “Marathons are too easy, and Triathlons are for sissies?”
We haven’t either…those races are really hard. Think about it…the first person to run a marathon actually died. HE DIED!...and he probably didn’t even have fun along the way!
Well, welcome to a new kind of race: THE DIRTY DASH. This race that puts all other races to shame. The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine.
You’ll need endurance to trudge up mountains of sludge, courage to overcome uncompromising obstacles, a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end!
So let this mud run obstacle course become your new guilty pleasure. Go solo or with some of your dirtiest, filthiest, & uncouth friends. Either way, you’ll be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am a Dirty Dasher!”… and then proceed to clean yourself off.
