Due to the significant spread of the Coronavirus, the City of Galveston is cancelling large events in Galveston County through May, including the Gritty Goddess obstacle/mud run that has been scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020.  We respect the City of Galveston’s decision and want our athletic/special events community to remain healthy.

We are taking a look at some optional dates for the fall of 2020 at Moody Gardens. Given the fluid health situation facing us all, it is hard to predict future restrictions on large gatherings and availability of space.*  As we get information, we will be sharing it with you.

Unfortunately, as indicated on the event website, we cannot offer refunds--many of the costs are fixed and pre-paid. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the Gritty Goddess event.

*In the event that the race is not rescheduled, registered participants will receive at least a 50% discount code for next year's race.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding during this dynamic time.

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.
