Gritty Chix Mud Run

July 23, 2016 - Starts at 12 Noon


Gritty Chix have fun and test their limits in the time and space they're comfortable with, while gettin' as Gritty as they wanna be on an untimed Tenacious Trail (5k) or Moxie Mile (1mi) run and mud obstacle course designed for excitement, fun, and laughter. Walk, sprint, skip, jog, or dance through the trail with walls, tubes, and mud pits with names like Commando Crawl, Over-Under Logs, Slickey Slide, and more!

Wear anything you feel comfortable in. Anything. A bikini, a costume, overalls, a prom dress, whatever. But it will get dirty!

You choose - sweat it out on the Tenacious 5k Trail or don't sweat it on the Moxie Mile. Some 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!

Your participation in Gritty Chix helps support the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, and First Descents young adult cancer fighters and survivors.

Teams are welcome but not necessary. Chix is in the name, but we won’t exclude the guys that respect our Grit - those guys are man enough to run with Gritty Chix! It's all about excitement, laughter and camaraderie so we encourage lending a helping hand to all Gritty Chix throughout the course.

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