Killington Resort invites women to get dirty for a good cause

KILLINGTON—On July 8, Killington Resort invites women to participate in the Dirty Girl Mud Run, one of the world’s largest women-only mud runs to raise awareness for breast cancer. The resort officially announced the event May 9.

Susan G. Komen®, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funds more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease, and its local affiliate Komen New England is the official beneficiary of the 2017 Dirty Girl Mud Run at Killington.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Dirty Girl Mud Run to help raise critical funds to support our neighbors who are fighting breast cancer,” said Lori van Dam, CEO of Susan G. Komen New England. A portion of registration fees go to Komen New England, and all female participants will have the opportunity to organize a team, fundraise, dress up, win prizes and of course make memories.

“We are excited to have Komen New England as a partner this year, and we are going to switch up the race flow with a new course design that hits new zones of the mountain,” said Jeff Alexander, events and sponsorships manager for Killington Resort. “It will be quite dirty!”

The Dirty Girl Mud Run is a 5K muddy obstacle course created to inspire women to run, walk, climb, jump and launch their way, hand-in-muddy-hand, to an unabashed sense of accomplishment. The Dirty Girl Mud Run and Komen New England partnership is a female-focused event designed to encourage women to get together, get a little muddy and support a worthy cause.

Participants are encouraged to make it a girls’ weekend or family trip with discounted lodging and 20 percent off daycare, Adventure Center one-day passes and mountain bike tickets and rentals for participants and family members are valid Saturday and Sunday July 8-9.
