Ladies, prepare for things to get a little messy! The Dirty Girl 5K Mud Run and Obstacle Course hits Lake Lanier Resort on Saturday, April 12. Perfect for women of all fitness levels, the Dirty Girl Mud Run encourages ladies to have a great time with their friends and let go of the everyday worries of life.
Since getting it’s start in 2011, the run has become the premier women’s only mud run event and is held in over 25 cities in the U.S. Dirty Girl events hope to inspire ladies to run, walk, climb, jump and laugh their way, hand in muddy hand, to an unabashed sense of accomplishment. They even let teenage girls in on the fun, the minimum age to participate is 14.
And if you are worried about the obstacle course aspect, don’t be. Dirty Girl assures it’s participants that all of the obstacles are manageable for most fitness levels. But if you simply do not want to do one, you don’t have to! The run is not about competing with other women, it is non-timed and strictly about bonding with your friends and having a great time. You can participate as an individual or as part of a team with all of your pals.
Dirty Girl is also about giving back. Dirty Girl events has partnered with Bright Pink, an organization whose mission is to encourage and educate women to understand the signs, symptoms and risk factors of breast and ovarian cancer. Together, Bright Pink and Dirty Girl focus on empowering women to lead healthier, happier lives. So far, Dirty Girl has donated over $400,000 to Bright Pink, and they hope to surpass that number this year. Not only does Dirty Girl raise money for Bright Pink, but they also support and encourage cancer survivors. At each Dirty Girl event, up to 300 complimentary registrations are available to cancer survivors.
The registration fee is $85 but rises to $100 on April 2, so register today!
