A Virtuous Event with a Dirty Name

The Dirty Girl Mud run will be held this August, event planners say. Before you lock up your daughters, keep in mind that the event is much “cleaner” than it sounds, and it benefits a worthy charity.

Billing itself as “the original women-only national 5K mud and obstacle run series,” this tongue-in-cheek tribute to girl power will be held August 23 in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area.

Organizers said that this year’s obstacles will include the Utopian Tubes tunnel crawl, PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff) mud pit and Dirty Dancing giant slide. The event welcomes women of all athletics abilities, and promises to be both dirty and fun.

The event supports Bright Pink, the national non-profit organization focusing on risk reduction and early detection of breast and ovarian cancers in young women.

Dirty Girl organizers said that the Mud Run has donated more than $475,000 to breast cancer charities since its inception. This year, Dirty girl promises to donate “at least” $125,000 to Bright Pink.

The event is open to women ages 14 and up with entry fees that start at $75.
