Dirty Girl Mud Run, the original women-only national 5K mud and obstacle run series, returns to Charleston. Dirty Girls are encouraged to make a friend, make a memory and make a mess at this empowering event.
Dirty Girl Mud Run challenges women to break out of their comfort zones and get dirty with an untimed, obstacles-optional course that welcomes women of all ages and athletic abilities. Obstacles include the Utopian Tubes tunnel crawl, PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff) mud pit and Dirty Dancing giant slide.
Each event attracts thousands of women as well as supportive spectators. Many women participate in groups complete with unique team names and crazy costumes.
As part of its mission to empower a healthy lifestyle, Dirty Girl proudly supports Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on risk reduction and early detection of breast and ovarian cancers in young women.
Since its inception, Dirty Girl Mud Run has donated more than $475,000 to breast cancer charities and will donate at least $125,000 in 2014 to Bright Pink. At each 2014 event, 300 free registrations are reserved for cancer survivors.
Women ages 14 and up can participate in Dirty Girl events. The entry fee is $85 and participants can register online or on-site.
Dirty Girl Mud Run is also searching for volunteers to help put on a spectacular, successful and inspiring event. Along with receiving service hours, volunteers receive a free t-shirt and complimentary entry to a future Dirty Girl Mud Run.
