MUD...SWEAT...CHEERS! On the Gritty Course, which is about 3 miles, you'll meander your way through Moody Gardens, Palm Beach, and the mud and muck on the banks of the Offats Bayou, before finishing in front of the cheering masses! Yup, there will be mud. There will be sand. You will get wet. You'll also probably get foamy! Along the way, you'll go over, under, through, into a variety of awesome obstacles, in your quest to join the Sisterhood of the Soil! If there's an obstacle that spooks you, it's ok. You can skip any of 'em that seem too daunting...Do it solo, or grab your Sistahs to join you, and form a team!
Check out some photos of our obstacles HERE

Choose A Wave
YOU get to choose the wave/time that works for YOU. Each wave is named after a famous goddess, so all you have to do is remember your goddess name and you’ll be able to look up the start time later if you forget. Many Sistahs choose to roll with a team. Many choose to do it solo. Each are welcome in the various waves.
**The minimum age for all waves is now 10 years old, so we have eliminated the mother/daughter waves, as mothers and daughters ages 10 and up can now participate in any wave of their choice.

We have reserved the FIRST wave of the day, for you, our couples - and that includes ALL couples, of any kind - everyone is welcome. You've heard the saying: "couples who get muddy together stay together". Okay, well maybe that's not quite how the saying goes, but there's nothing like a little muddy, foamy fun to boost your relationship! After all, it takes cooperation and teamwork to traverse three miles of obstacles together. Along the way there will be laughter, butt-slapping, and high-fiveing; perhaps some rolling in the mud too; after all, it takes TWO to tango! So join us for the couples therapy wave at 8:30 am - it's good, not so clean, therapy.
The more the merrier! Form a team, name your team, send us your team picture! Teams can have 2 Goddesses, or they can have 200….it’s however you wanna do it. When you register, be sure to put your team name on the entry, and BE SURE to have all of your teammates register for the SAME GODDESS WAVE. You’ll all want to start at the same time!
Each team member registers individually. The first team member to register will "Create A Team" and enter the team name, then the rest of your team will "Join A Team" during their individual registrations.
