Have you heard of it?
I hadn't until Katherine emailed me a couple months ago and asked me to be on her team. The event is this weekend in Waukesha!
Dirty Girl is a 5k mud run for women of all ages and athletic abilities. A portion of all registration fees is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Dirty Girl was founded in 2010 & held events in Wisconsin, New York and Colorado in 2011. The Dirty Girl Mud Run Series is expanding across the nation in 2012. Females ages 14+ complete a 5K obstacle course consisting of a series of difficult, but manageable, tasks including wall climbs, stomach crawls, cargo net climbs, tire tests and conclude with a mud-filled pit.
Check out all those obstacles! The 11 are described on the website:
1. H20MG - Water Pit
2. The HangOver - hanging tires
3. Barn Burner - Hay Bale Climb
4. Loop De Loop - Tire Weave
5. Tire Pump - Tire High Step
6. Just Get Over It - Wall Climb
7. Utopian Tubes - Tunnel Crawl
8. Get A Grip - Cargo Net
9. One Ugly Mudder - Mud Hill Scale & Descent
10. Jail Break - Fence Jump
Oh boy, should be fun! Our team, named the Filthy Five consists of myself, Katherine, Polly, Angela and Nicky. I'll be sure to give you an update sometime next week. Hoping we'll get some fun pictures. Besides the dirtiness and exhaustion is looks like they have some fun things planned. It should be a really fun experience and I'm so looking forward to it!
