Spring is a great season for many reasonsâ•Œmore warm weather, longer hours of sunlight, and our favorite: The official start to three of our spring sports tours! This month, Dirty Girl, Down & Dirty and XTERRA kick off their event season, which means we’ll be on-site, playing hard and providing athletes and attendees haircuts and sporty styles. Best of all, the proceeds from these services are donated to charityâ•Œit’s just one more way to strive to live beautifully!
Here’s what’s coming up:
DOWN & DIRTY " CASTAIC LAKE, CA
Note the irony between these mud-covered Paul Mitchell employees and the MITCH Nothing But Clean banner...
When: April 12, 2015
This is by far one of the most fun events we have on our roster and anyone is welcome to sign up for the race, so gather your friends and prepare to get dirty. The Down & Dirty course features a three-mile and six-mile courses with more than 20 military-style obstacles for you to tackle along the way. And here’s the best part: The course ends with a mud-pit you have to wade through to get to the finish line. It’s a serious amount of dirty fun. If you’re in the area, gather your friends and come out to play!
A team from Paul Mitchell Headquarters completed the Down & Dirty obstacle course at Castaic Lake last year" needless to say, they had some good, unclean fun!
DIRTY GIRL " ATLANTA, GEORGIA
When: April 25, 2015
The Dirty Girl Mud Run Series is a blast for so many reasonsâ•Œthere’s plenty of mud, the obstacle course is challenging but untimed, and the event encourages ladies of all levels to enjoy messy, muddy fun. With no pressure of clocks or times, this event is all about having fun with friends and family. We’ll be on-site with Paul Mitchell Future Professionals providing gals with sporty styles and, best of all, the proceeds collected benefit our partner, Bright Pink®"a non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Gather your girls and join us!
XTERRA WEST CHAMPIONSHIPS Â Â Â " HENDERSON, NV
The XTERRA West Championships are heading back to Las Vegas for another exciting competition, including a full-length XTERRA off-road triathlon, a shorter distance sprint race and 5/10/21km trail runs. Competitive athletes will come out to test their skills against Mother Nature in order to qualify for the XTERRA USA and World Championships later in the season. We’ll be there offering participants and their supporters haircuts and braids for donations as well as free product samples for all to enjoy! All proceeds from our services are donated the Challenged Athlete Foundation, an organization near and dear to Paul Mitchell. Come out to watch these supreme athletes tackle the rough terrain and cross the finish line.
We’re excited to ring in the spring season and kick off these fun-filled events. As always, check out #SportYourStyle on social media to get live updates and photos from our athletes, partners and event attendees.
The Paul Mitchell sports team is made up of a sporty duo that organizes and oversees our sports marketing initiatives, as well as our roster of professional athletes and events.
