Her Name Is Mud 

Forget sugar and spice and everything nice. It's time to get dirty, ladies.

The Dirty Girl Mud Run, a 5K fun run and obstacle course that literally drags participants through the mud, is coming to Memphis Saturday, March 16th. Women run, walk, climb, and crawl through 12 obstacles set up throughout Shelby Farms Park in this fund-raiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

It's not a race just for diehard marathoners but rather women of all athletic abilities. The obstacle course is not timed, so women are encouraged to run through it at their own pace. Participants are placed in groups that are released onto the course every 15 minutes to prevent congestion.

Because racers will be zipping through mud, women are encouraged to wear clothes they don't mind getting dirty (even bikinis are allowed!), but a solid pair of running shoes, towels, a change of clothes, and a garbage bag for storing your muddy attire are strongly recommended. A post-run party featuring live music and a free drink for participants will follow.

A percentage of all registration fees are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. In 2012, Dirty Girl Mud Runs were held all over the country and raised more than $250,000. The goal for 2013 is $500,000.

Dirty Girl Mud Run, Saturday, March 16th, 8 a.m. Shelby Farms Park, $100 to participate. godirtygirl.com
