The "Dirty Girl Mud Run", the original women-only national mud run series, is coming to Charleston's Coonskin Park on Saturday, April 6. Organizers said in a news release that more than 2,800 women registered to participate.

The first wave of runners will begin at 8 a.m. and the last is scheduled to start at about 4 p.m.

Women will navigate a course with about 10-12 obstacles, from the "Utopian Tubes" tunnel crawl to the "PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff)" mud pit. Participants are encouraged to run in teams, and many teams choose to dress in costume, according to organizers.

The event will also feature music, food, and drinks for participants after the mud run.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is Dirty Girl's official partner. Monies raised from the event help to support research and services. In addition, cancer survivors run for free at any event.
