Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
It’s not everyday you see large groups of adult women crawling through thick mud and zipping down a 100-foot slip-n-slide to help benefit leukemia & lymphoma research. On Saturday, September 22nd, Austin’s Stunt Ranch will host such a scene when the LoziLu Women’s Mud Run launches it's fabulous fun for the first time in the Lone Star State.
LoziLu, pronounced “low-zee-loo,” is a super-fab 5k obstacle course dedicated to providing women a uniquely feminine mud run founded on fitness and FUN. Area women challenge their strength, balance, and determination while working through a variety of creative obstacles, culminating in a crawl through the infamous skin-enhancing mud bath. Post-run, groups of women work the runway and pose on the red carpet before changing into their party boots. A quick visit to the LoziLu Salon and it’s time for the after party!
It’s apparent by all the smiles and laughs that LoziLu is achieving their mission: to spread happiness, health and fitness, and to support L.I.F.E., a non-profit organization dedicated to funding cutting-edge leukemia and lymphoma research and patient support.
“LoziLu is all about providing a fabulously fun and challenging obstacle course that’s perfect for a variety of fitness levels,” says Luisa Bryce, co-founder of LoziLu. “Music is a huge part of LoziLu. Music provides motivation and magnifies the fun; so there’s music in the party area near the start and finish and on-course at the more challenging obstacles.”
LoziLu’s fiercely fabulous 5k obstacle course, judgment-free atmosphere, and lack of results or timing makes for the perfect girl’s day out. LoziLu registration costs just $59 for all-day entertainment if registered by August 16th. Students and active military receive $10 off.

On March 30th, 2012 the LoziLu Women’s Mud Run series launched in Phoenix with 1300 women participating. Since then LoziLu has entertained Jacksonville, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Boston, Washington DC, and Chicago with Austin finishing up the 2012 season.
LoziLu Women’s Mud Run was founded by two couples, Lauren (Lozi) & Brodie Birkel and Luisa (Lu) & Francis Donovan, in October of 2011 as a means to spread fitness throughout the nation. Both couples have roots in competitive triathlon with Lauren, Luisa, and Francis having competed at the Ironman World Championships. Despite their multisport love, they wanted an event with a non-intimidating atmosphere and simple qualifications to participate: a pair of shoes and a mud-ready outfit!
To spread maximum fitness, Team LoziLu leveraged their backgrounds in triathlon coaching to create LoziLu Training. The free LoziLu Training emails help rookies and gym-regulars reach their fitness goals. The “Couch to LoziLu” program gets fitness rookies ready to confidently finish LoziLu. The Week of Workouts (or WOW) provides gym-regulars with professionally designed strength workouts to sculpt abs, tone booties, and add variety to gym visits. http://training.LoziLu.com
