Submitted by Lindsey R. McKissick on Fri, 03/15/2013 - 2:35pm

Forgo the pricey spa mad bath. Instead attack ten obstacles in this women-only 5K and get the mudbath free of charge. Trudge through the non-competitive, untimed course solo or bring a team of as many dirt-loving ladies as you can to form a wall-climbin', mudpit swimming pack. Wear duds that can hit the trash after day's end, a towel, and know that the only clean thing in your end of run photo may be your teeth. But, even that's not a promise. Ten percent of proceeds benefit AIM, a charity that rescues kids from sex slavery and works to provide a better future. 13 and up. Sat 7 a.m.
