Obstacle courses rose to popularity in the early 2000s, bringing with them a sense of competition and a culture of athleticism and performance. The atmosphere within those races had long implied you needed to be strong, fast, and “masculine.”.
This climate could be intimidating to women, or even feel exclusionary.
After a loved one was diagnosed with breast cancer, Sportera decided to take action: Create an obstacle course for women that would have an immediate impact on participants' relationship with exercising, and a long-term impact by raising funds for breast cancer research.
MUDGIRL invites you to a rewarding experience that is accessible to everyone and hopes to make you discover new aspects of yourself through participating in mud runs. Whatever your lifestyle, your current health condition, or your age, our goal is to make you step out of your comfort zone and enjoy doing it!
Thanks to your enthusiasm and continued support, we are looking to expand our horizons and give more women the opportunity to experience positive emotions through athleticism.
The MUDGIRL experience hopes to create a spark in you, create a desire to attempt physical activity of any kind, and lead you to healthier lifestyle habits.
Behind MUDGIRL is a small, close-knit team of ten people. Although coming from different countries, backgrounds, and walks of life, they are all driven by a love for sport and its continued development.
(The atmosphere is indeed far from resembling that of a large international company)
The fundamental values of the company are those that you find at MUDGIRL experience.
Pleasure and humility
When you finish the race side by side, no matter if you are the fastest or slowest of your friend group .
When you have to navigate obstacles you rarely encounter on your way to work or school.
Team spirit and community engagement
Helping and motivating everyone, no matter it be a loved one or a stranger in a difficult situation.
We are of the opinion that physical activity has a massive impact on the mental and physical well-being of any individual. For this reason, through this race we want to show everyone that exercise can pull you up and even help some towards recovery.
