WHAT'S NEW

ADD-ON PROGRAM:

We know that an existing barrier to allowing women to be physically active is childcare. So to ensure that all parents and guardians can participate in the Women’s Run and have their loved ones participate in the Girls’ Run without the fear of supervision or juggling schedules, we are launching an ADD-ON program following the Girls’ Run! This ADD-ON will include further connections with the REAL Role models and activities such as crafts and movement. So parents and guardians can go out and enjoy the run/walk, and we’ll be at the finish line cheering you on! Lunch is included!

Cost:

  • Saturday, May 27, 2023: Directly following the Girls’ Run (9:30 am-12:30 pm) (25 tickets available) – $35 (Lunch included)
  • Sunday, May 28, 2023: Directly Following the Girls’ Run (10:00 am – 12:30 pm) (25 tickets available) – $35 (Lunch included)

Spots are limited to 25 participants per day! Please note that you will be able to pick up your loved one anytime between the time blocks listed above. If you require this ADD-ON program day-of and have not purchased the ticket, the cost will be $35 on-site and based on available spaces.
