Voted #1 Mud Run/Adventure Race in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, in the 2020 Best of the Blue Ridge Readers’ Choice Awards by Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine!
No matter what Gritty Chix wear (athletic wear, costumes, or dresses), no matter how they look (aflame with glitter, game day face paint, or gloriously au natural), no matter how they start (sprinting, jogging, or moseying along), no matter how hard they laugh or grit their teeth along the way, they cross the finish line as mud covered and as triumphant as they want to! Second to none.
Gritty Chix Mud Run is where you cut loose and let it fly! It’s all good.
Walk, sprint, skip, jog, crawl and dance through trails, over walls, through tubes, and mud pits! You’re gonna sweat a little, challenge yourself a little, get a little mud in your teeth, and you’re gonna have a lotta fun.
Held at ACE Adventure Resort in Oak Hill WV, the largest outdoor adventure resort around, ACE has most everything you may need on-site: food, drinks, shopping, adventure activities, cabins and campsites.
Some Gritty Chix run in and out for the mud while others make the whole weekend on their terms! There’s a Waterpark and swimming lake with a beach, there’s music and drinks on the deck of the Lost Paddle; options to pop a tent on a campsite or a get cozy in a cabin, and other adventures like ATV’s, hiking trails, ziplines, climbing, stand up paddle boarding, fishing, rafting, kayaking, relaxing massage, mountain biking, and paintball!
Open to everyone ages 10 and up; under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. No exceptions.
We don’t exclude the guys that respect our grit – those guys are man enough to run with Gritty Chix!
You choose – the 5k Tenacious Trail or the Moxie Mile. Both woodland trails converge on the mud obstacle course, with a few additional mud-holes on the Tenacious Trail.
Obstacles have varying degrees of difficulty, but all are manageable. 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 applause, hoots, hollers, and lending a helping hand.
Water and first aid are stationed along the trails and at the finish line.
