Fun and unique races are popping up everywhere it seems. Ways to get covered in color, glow-in-the-dark, or find your inner warrior have all been pretty popular additions to the running scene this year. Just when you think they’ve thought of it all, a new race with appeal unlike any other shows up. Pretty Muddy is a new race just for the ladies… no boys allowed!
Pretty Muddy is a 5k adventure obstacle course race. As you can probably gather, it’s also pretty muddy. The whole concept is focused on women being able spend free time out of their daily grind in an unforgettable way. The race was created by two men who watched their wives balance so much between work, family, and responsibilities and realized they needed more outlets for carefree time in their lives. And thus, Pretty Muddy was born. I can tell I already like these guys.
An occasional solo shopping trip or even wine night out with the girls isn’t always a true release, nor is it very active. But an obstacle course in the mud? Umm yes please! I can’t think of a better way to blow off steam with my friends while painting a constant smile on my face. (more…)
