Hi everyone! I am so excited to announce that I’m an official Dirty Girl 5K Mud Run Ambassador for 2014! I had the amazing opportunity to attend my first Dirty Girl 5K Mud Run last year as an official blogger, and I can’t wait to do it again this year!
Check out my blog post on the Dirty Girl blog! I talk about how the 2013 Dirty Girl Mud Run was my first ever 5K, and how it really challenged me physically and got me fired up to continue running and further challenging myself. I can’t believe how much I’ve grown since then.
I’m so thankful that Dirty Girl is part of my story!

Overview: Dirty Girl Mud Run is the largest women-only 5K mud and obstacle series in the country. At Dirty Girl, it’s not about who finishes first. All obstacles are optional and all fitness levels are invited to participate.
What makes Dirty Girl different from other mud runs? Dirty Girl is non-competitive and for women only. It’s not timed so it’s not about crossing the finishing line first, it’s about creating a day that encourages women to get out there and do something unexpected with their friends and loved ones.
What are some of the obstacles? Each event has 10 to 12 obstacles set up, spread throughout the 5K course. Some examples are the “Pretty Muddy Stuff” mud pit, the “Get-a-Grip” net climb (you ring a bell when you reach the top), and “Down and Dirty,” where you crawl under a series of nets in the mud. All obstacles are optional, so if you don’t feel like tackling one, or can’t for some reason, you’re welcome to pass it by.
Have you ever done a mud/obstacle run before? Did you like it? If not, is it something you want to try?
Disclosure: I was invited to attend the Dirty Girl 5K Mud Run in Cleveland as an ambassador. My registration fee was waived. I will also receive a “Dirty Girl Swag” item for free. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.
