Are you a DIRTY GIRL? ~Giveaway~

It's about time I get down and dirty. 
So this summer, I'm taking the plunge... into the MUD!


Dirty Girl is a female-only 5k obstacle and mud run for women of all ages and athletic abilities.  What I like about Dirty Girl is that the event is focused on female-camaraderie (hugs and laughter!), rather than pure grit.  Whether you're a runner, fitness guru or a beginner, anyone can do this fun run!  It's a healthy day of discovery and laughter with your friends... in the mud.

Participants can register either as individuals or as part of a team.  Undoubtedly, the fun begins with a team. At each race, there are awards for Biggest Team, Most Creative Team Name, Best Themed Costumes and a few more with fun prizes. I laughed so hard reading some of the names from past years...
Muddy Melons   •   The Mudd Butts
G.I. Sloppy Janes   •   The Muddonnas
Dirty Pigs (group of female cops)
Team Victorious Secret (dressed in lingerie)
Does This Mud Make My Ass Look Fast?

The Dirty Girl course is 3.1 miles with 11 obstacles along the way.  In true girl-style, each obstacle has a fun feminine name... The mud pit is called P.M.S. (Pretty Muddy Stuff), and the tunnel crawl is called Utopian Tubes.  I'm a sucker for that kind of creativity!  The obstacles have varying degrees of difficulty to accommodate all participants. Everyone crosses the finish line laughing with a feeling of accomplishment. See all obstacles of course here.

Do the Dirty Girl with your girls and for your girls. A portion of all proceeds from registration fees is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  In 2011, Dirty Girls helped raise over $50,000 to help win the race against breast cancer.  In 2012, race coordinators will also give special recognition and complimentary registration to 250 cancer survivors in each of the 12 planned cities on the Dirty Girl tour.




The Dirty Girl Mud Run series debuted in 2011 to a sold-out field of over 6,000 women in Wisconsin.  (Yup, I'm a Wisconsin girl and can attest... we are dirty girls!)  The inaugural year also featured successful events in Colorado and New York.  In 2012, the Dirty Girl has expanded across the United States...


The entire day of Dirty Girl is a festival-like atmosphere.  The start area features music to rock the crowd, pump up the Dirty Girls and set the stage for runner waves departing every 15 minutes. The course is staffed by off-duty firefighters and concludes with a sloshing crawl through a 40-foot mud pit, energizing Dirty Girls with the laughter, encouragement and cheering of teammates, supporters, friends and families.

After completing the course, Dirty Girls can clean up, change clothes, and then do what women do best... eat, drink, dance and shop!  That's right... delicious food at the end with a complimentary cosmopolitan!

So get your girls together and sign up today! Events do fill quickly. The Wisconsin race already sold out for August 18.  Thankfully, race coordinators added a second day to accommodate those Wisconsin Dirty Girls.

  8. I was surprised to see that they have a Buffalo location, none of these races ever have anything remotely close to me! But I won't enter since that is only a few weeks from my first marathon and I wouldn't want to hurt myself! Maybe some other year.
