  • Komen New England, an affiliate of Susan G. Komen® is the official beneficiary of the Dirty Girl Mud Run at Vermont’s Killington Resort.
  • Komen New England’s mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in New England communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. 

KILLINGTON, Vt. (May 9, 2017) – On July 8, Killington Resort, the largest four-season destination resort in eastern North America, invites women to participate in one of the world’s largest women-only mud runs to raise awareness for breast cancer. Susan G. Komen®, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funds more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease, and is the official beneficiary of the 2017 Dirty Girl Mud Run at Killington.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Dirty Girl Mud Run to help raise critical funds to support our neighbors who are fighting breast cancer,” says Lori van Dam, CEO of Susan G. Komen New England. “Through Komen New England’s partnership with Dirty Girl Mud Run, we can share our mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and invest in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer with hundreds of thousands of women who participate in these events.”

A portion of registration fees go to Komen New England, and all female participants will have the opportunity to organize a team, fundraise, dress up, win prizes and of course make memories.

“We are excited to have Komen New England as a partner this year, and we are going to switch up the race flow with a new course design that hits new zones of the mountain,” says Jeff Alexander, events and sponsorships manager for Killington Resort. “It will be quite dirty!”

The Dirty Girl Mud Run is a 5K muddy obstacle course created to inspire women to run, walk, climb, jump and launch their way, hand-in-muddy-hand, to an unabashed sense of accomplishment. The Dirty Girl Mud Run x Komen New England partnership is a female-focused event designed to encourage women to get together, get a little muddy and support a worthy cause. Participants are encouraged to make it a girls’ weekend or family trip with discounted lodging, and 20% off daycare, Adventure Center 1-day passes and mountain bike tickets and rentals for participants and family members valid Saturday and Sunday July 8-9.
