Join Gritty Chix the largest mud run in West Virginia!
Have fun and test your own limits in the time and space you’re comfortable with while gettin’ as Gritty as you wanna be on an untimed 5k Tenacious Trail or 1 Moxie Mile fun run and mud obstacle course designed for excitement, fun, and laughter. Walk, sprint, skip, jog or dance through trails, over walls, through tubes, and mud pits with names like Commando Crawl, Over-Under Logs, Slickey Slide, and more!

Wear anything you feel comfortable in. A bikini, costume, overalls, prom dress… anything, but it will get dirty!

Chix is in the name, but we don’t exclude the guys that respect our grit – those guys are man enough to run with Gritty Chix!

Open to ages 10 and up; under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.


You choose – sweat it out on the Tenacious 5k Trail or don’t sweat it on the Moxie Mile. Both trails go through the main mud obstacle course with a couple additional mud-holes on the 5k. Obstacles have varying degrees of difficulty, but all obstacles are manageable. Some upper body strength is helpful and you have the option to bypass any obstacle you’re not comfortable tackling. Go for it before going around it – try to complete each one! It’s all about excitement, laughter, and camaraderie so we encourage lending a helping hand to all Gritty Chix throughout the course.
Water stations and first aid are available along the trails and at the finish line.


ACE Adventure Resort gift certificate prizes are awarded at the starting line to:
Most Creative Team Name
Best Costume
Furthest Traveled


Teams are welcome but not necessary. The largest team gets special recognition.
