The best and muddiest finish you've seen in all of obstacle course running!

No way… San Jose! Women of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels will skip, slip and scramble their way through a mud run of obstacles and dirty fun at the 2nd annual in San Jose, CA event at the Santa Clara Fairgrounds on April 14, 2013. Kiss Me Dirty offers a fun, safe and rewarding fitness challenge as it encourages women to “come as you are,” free from the pressure to look or act in a particular way. The end of this San Jose run goes through the 408MX motocross facility – sure to be the muddiest finish of all Kiss Me Dirty Events!

Kiss Me Dirty mud races empower women in two important ways: 1) It encourages women to get off the couch and have fun with fitness, and 2) it donates a portion of event proceeds directly to gynecological cancer research and treatment support. The 2013 Kiss Me Dirty San Jose event will benefit the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“Kiss Me Dirty chooses to partner with local cancer research facilities in each of the communities we produce events,” says Kiss Me Dirty founding partner, Charity Vernon. “We know participants appreciate that their monies are staying local and furthering treatment options and research capabilities in their own communities. Kiss Me Dirty also encourages participants to hold their own cancer research fundraisers in conjunction with an event. Participants are rewarded with entry fee waivers for future Kiss Me Dirty obstacle course events when they meet specific fundraising milestones.

Started in 2010, Kiss Me Dirty mud races have been widely embraced as a way for “today’s stressed-out woman to lose herself, along with her inhibitions, in a sea of mud, laughter, and girl power.” From the ‘Dirty Director’, who acts as Master of Ceremonies and keeps the atmosphere pumping, to the custom pageant style sashes that are given to cancer survivors, Kiss Me Dirty strives to provide the right combination of energy, attitude, and value in a setting that gives every participant the freedom to express her individuality and her wild side. After all, women aren’t ‘one size fits all,’ so why should Kiss Me Dirty be?
