Due to the significant spread of the Coronavirus last spring, the City of Galveston cancelled the Gritty Goddess obstacle/mud run that had been scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020. 

Unable to secure a fall 2020 date, we were forced to postpone until the spring of 2021. As we had promised last year-“In the event that the race is not rescheduled, registered participants will receive at least a 50% discount code for next year's race”.

We have secured a spring date at Moody Gardens of March 27, 2021.  For registered participants from 2020, you should have received an email with a registration code equal to 80% off of your registration price that you paid last year.  As we mentioned last year, this is due to expenses incurred that were not recoverable by the race organization.

We are excited to be able to offer the event this spring. Our utilization of current COVID protocols, gathered from various multi-sport organizations, will be the springboard for a safe event!  Be sure to check the registration site for more details of the safety protocols. 


We are aware that some people may not feel comfortable for some time to recreate socially with others, however, there are many that are eager to get outside and play…

Gritty Goddess Staff

Gather your fellow goddesses for an event that’s all about women, and women ONLY.

I mean really, who wants to climb a cargo net with a sweaty, hairy, possibly smelly guy? Okay, some of you might, but for the rest of us, that’s just unnecessary grossness. No offense guys – we still love you.

Join Us!  

We know you’re swamped in laundry, work, school, motherhood, wivery (not a real word, but we’ll go with it) – you know… LIFE.

But you really need to set aside one day for yourself and take on a different sort of challenge. What is it exactly? It’s an obstacle course (approximately 3 miles) built just for women, no matter your age, shape, size or athletic ability. It’s a way to get back to nature, and reconnect with your inner goddess. And it’s non-competitive, so you can take your sweet time, have fun, and enjoy every moment with your bosom buddies!

Yes, it’s gritty too. There will be mud, sand, foam and water involved (we said “get back to nature”), and some other, more colorful goop as well – so we suggest you leave your Marchesa gown and Jimmy Choos at home. You’ll also be required to run, crawl, climb, slide, balance, hoist, swing, stretch, and make your body do things it may not usually do. That’s all part of the fun!


All of this effort is not without reward… along the way you’ll find “Temptation Island” (need we say more), and at the finish you’ll receive a goddess finisher item that every hard-working goddess deserves. There may even be a few “spirits” of the drink variety waiting for you.
