Dirty Girl Mud Run Event Recap

This past weekend, myself and two friends embarked on the journey of the Dirty Girl Mud Run in Las Vegas, NV. I was very excited to do this one because I LOVE mud runs and obstacle courses. I was contacted by Dirty Girl Mud Run and asked to do some promoting of the event online prior to the event as well as brief interview with Fox 5 Vegas. From the start, a great company to work with.

My friends and I decided to dress up in 80’s fashions and our team name was “Dirty Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”.  After my work presentation that morning, we all met up and headed out. We were very excited for this adventure!!


It was a super windy day in Las Vegas, noted by signs down for the event and tents trying to blow away. This also caused some dusty conditions and when we started, we were told to proceed with caution. So… off we went!! Our first obstacle seemed easy enough, an inflatable staircase! Okay, seriously, who doesn’t love the idea of adult bouncy houses? This was a lot like that, and so much fun to climb and bounce on!! I want one in my backyard, seriously (although the dogs would hate it).


Then we trekked through a couple different mud obstacles. Some we had to crawl through, crawl under nets and around inflatable tubes in them. When one friend attempted her best to stay clean, we made sure to hug her with all of our mud! Hello… it is the MUD run!!



We then climbed a wall:


Traversed through some bungee cords… not sure why, but seriously struggled lifting my legs in this one… kept getting tangled, lol. It made for fun and giggles for sure!!


We then climbed another wall with the help of ropes, swam in the mud tank… it was SO cold in there!! Then… we saw it, the finish line! However, we still had a few more obstacles to get through first…




A net cargo climb, an inflatable tire jump thing (it was like an air mattress with holes in it to jump into). Easier said than done… then finally… the end!! ANOTHER giant inflatable obstacle! Climb up one side, then go down the slide into the final mud pit!! Then, we posed for pics with our muddy selves, cleaned up and did some souvenir shopping.

Awesome green jacket I purchased!

All in all, this was a very fun event. I loved that it was Women Only, I feel that helped get some women out there that may be intimidated at other events to participate, there was no timing, so it really was all about getting your friends together and having fun along the way. We laughed, threw some mud, tripped, and laughed some more. Another bonus: a portion of the proceeds goes to the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation, helping fund research to end breast cancer.
