Spread happiness, health and fitness throughout the world by
leveraging the familial influence of women while helping young patients with leukemia & lymphoma have a future of fun.
LoziLu Women’s Mud Run was founded by two couples in October of 2011 as a means to spread fabulously fun fitness throughout the nation. Lauren (Lozi) & Brodie Birkel and Luisa (Lu) & Francis Donovan all have roots in competitive triathlon, with multiple Ironman Triathlons completed by each. Despite their multi-sport love they wanted an event with a non-intimidating atmosphere, be fiercely fun, and have simple qualifications to participate: a pair of shoes and a mud-ready outfit! You and the girls will be beautifully badass at LoziLu and even fitness rookies can LoziLu with a bit of training.
On March 30th, 2012 the LoziLu Women’s Mud Run
series launched in Phoenix with 1300 women participating. Since then LoziLu has
entertained Jacksonville, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Boston, Washington DC, and
Chicago, with Austin finishing up the 2012 season.
We took a look at what was most important to us while launching this endeavor. Fun, fitness, and women were at the core, but you, the women, were the nucleus. So we combined the nicknames of the women most important to our company, Loz (Lauren) and Lu (Luisa) and LoziLu emerged. That's Low-Zee-Loo if you were curious on the pronunciation. It's fun, it's feminine, and Loz and Lu are the fit women we all strive to be.
Cancer sucks. LoziLu is proud to support the Leukemia
