THE WOMEN'S SOAP RUN

Fast and Female is proud to work alongside the Women’s Soap Run. 5km, 10km and half marathon distances are offered. Click here for details.

The Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run & Walk was initially started in Canmore in order to:

  • Create safe, fun and inclusive events for women, that inspire the pursuit of an active, healthy and environmentally responsible lifestyle.
    build a community platform that offers knowledge and expertise of selected professionals, as well as supports charitable organizations both culturally and financially.
  • A healthy post-race reception, well-being stations along the course, a non-competitive atmosphere and amazing swag will make this event an unforgettable experience for women of all ages and fitness levels.

Registration for the Women’s Soap Run opens on January 6th. Register before it sells out!

ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS

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 25, 2023: Directly following the Girls Run (9:30 am-12:30 pm) (20 tickets available) – $40 (Lunch included)
  • Sunday, May 26, 2023: Directly Following the Girls Run (10:00 am – 12:30 pm) (20 tickets available) – $40 (Lunch included)

Spots are limited to 20 participants per day! Please note that you can 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 $40 on-site and based on available spaces.

LEADERS IN TRAINING (LIT) :

Calling all girls aged 13-17! We are offering a new opportunity to learn and practice leadership skills by supporting the younger girls and getting mentored by REAL Role Models!
