Getting Pretty and Muddy Against Cancer

I’ve heard of all female road races and I’ve had a blast running the Tufts 10K, and now I just learned of an all female mud race! Pretty Muddy! 


“Pretty Muddy is a 5K adventurous obstacle course mud run for any woman who wants to get outside, spend time with friends, and have fun.”

  • 5k Course (3.1 miles, run or walk)
  • Women Only (sorry, guys)
  • Mud (lots of it)
  • Architectural Obstacles (much better than shabby hay bales and shaky plywood)
  • Pretty Epic Finish Line Party (entertainment, music, drinks & celebration galore)

The course is more family friendly than competitive, but you can have your individual competition if you want. It is un-timed, and any woman above the age of 14 can register.


Unfortunately, there isn’t one in Boston yet, but check out if any of these locations fit your schedule. And if they do, I would keep a close look out on the blog for a little something something (need I wink and hint anymore?)

  • Dallas, April 26th
  • Sacramento, May 3rd
  • Chicago, August 16th
  • Richmond, September 20th

But wait there’s more! They also use the races as a way to raise money for breast cancer research. They’ve partnered with Susan G. Komen, Race for the Cure! They’re giving away free race entries to breast cancer survivorsPlease check out this link or share it with someone who might benefit from it.

Similar to other races, the earlier you register the cheaper it’ll be so Register Early. And if you’re like me and can’t do anything without your slower half ;-), the family addition allows all members of the family regardless of gender to jump into the last wave of the race for a shorter and more kid friendly 2 mile version of the course.

BONUS — Pretty Muddy is giving a Five Dollar Discount to Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors to share with their readers! Just use the code: GIRLSGONESPORTY.

Please be sure to share this post on Facebook and Twitter to pass along the discount to anyone else you may know! Easy share buttons are located below.

You can connect with Pretty Muddy through their Social media outlets.

Have you ever done an all women race? I’ve only done an all women 10K, but never an obstacle course. I loved it. I found it empowering to be part of such an awesome event.

Have you ever done an obstacle/mud race? I’ve only done the Spartan race. Would love to try another one.

  1. I know there’s a race like this in the Boston area that involves mud and donates to breast cancer research. A friend of mine (whose mom passed away from breast cancer when we were in high school) had invited me to do it last year. Sadly, I was unable to, although it sounded like a lot of fun! I’ll have to see if I can track down the name of the race and share it with you.
