HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., March 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mud runners take pride in getting dirty and at the 2015 Dirty Girl Mud Runs, the Kenmore brand will help them clean up following the races. Today, the Kenmore brand announced that for the second consecutive year, it will be the official household appliance sponsor of the series, the original women-only national 5K obstacle and race event.
The sponsorship supports Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support for high-risk individuals.
At 15 regional races, Kenmore™ will host interactive laundry centers featuring demonstrations of the new Kenmore 5.3 cu. ft. High efficiency Top-Load Washer (ENERGY STAR® rated) and the Kenmore 8.8 cu. ft. Dryer. Located near the race rinse stations, the Kenmore laundry centers enable participants to easily clean up their post-mud run messes with a fresh towel. Runners and spectators visiting the booth will also have the chance to walk away with prizes while checking out the live demo, which will feature the new Kenmore high efficiency top load laundry pair.
"The Kenmore brand and Dirty Girl are a natural fit," said Ryan Ostrom, CMO, Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard. "It's hard to think of a better place to demonstrate the high-quality cleaning performance of Kenmore laundry products, especially our innovative, brand new, top load, high efficiency models, than at the Dirty Girl Mud Runs."
Dirty Girl Mud Run fans across the country can enter the Clean Up with Kenmore™ Sweepstakes,* which awards one lucky winner one brand new Kenmore Washer and Dryer plus 20 tickets to a 2016 Dirty Girl® Event of their choice and a $100 gift certificate toward the purchase of merchandise at any 2016 Dirty Girl® Event.

New this year, Kenmore™ will also give away three blenders to the Dirty Girl Nation in a Run-Day Giveaway Sweeps** at each regional event.
"Dirty Girl Mud Runs are designed to encourage women at all levels to take the challenge and run, walk, climb, jump and laugh their way through a muddy course," Liesl Holtz, vice president of corporate strategy and partnerships, Human Movement Management said. "Kenmore is a perfect match for Dirty Girl, as a brand that deeply understands our ladies and what it takes to clean up the big messes we love to make."
