GOLDEN VALLY, Minn. - Ready to get dirty for a cause? Many women are as they get ready to participate in this year's Dirty Girl Mud Run, Saturday, August 3, 2013 (rain or shine).
It'll be held at the Running Aces Harness Park, Forest Lake, MN.
Jenna Mueller, spokesperson for the race, joined KARE 11 News @ 4 to talk about what makes the Dirty Girl Mud Run different from other runs.
- It's a women-only mud run for all ages and abilities.
- The run is untimed and all obstacles are optional, so it's not competitive.
- Dirty Girl is all about having a good time, bonding, and camaraderie. Forming teams is encouraged, and so are crazy team uniforms.
- In 2013, Dirty Girl plans to donate $300,000 to breast cancer charities nationwide. Dirty Girl's official partner is Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancers in young women.
- Cancer survivors always run for free at Dirty Girl events.
Every one of the obstacles-from the "Utopian Tubes" tunnel crawl to the "PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff)" mud pit-is optional, so participants can skip anything they find too difficult.
Forming teams is encouraged, and so are crazy team uniforms. A Dirty Girl Mud Run comes with excitement, laughter, and camaraderie-as well as lots of music, food and drinks.
