Note: I am a blogger for Skirt Sports and have received some product and discounts in exchange for blogging about their products and events. All opinions are my own…I truly do love Skirt Sports!
Almost 10 years ago, on September 12, 2004, Nicole DeBoom won Ironman Wisconsin wearing her original running skirt prototype. Then, just three days later, she launched Skirt Sports Inc. forever making running more fun and cuter for women. Nicole changed the way ladies running style and I can’t imagine hitting the pavement any other way!
To celebrate this milestone anniversary, Skirt Sports is putting on a virtual running event. You can round up your running sisters and run either 10 miles together, or 10k. The skirt fun takes place September 13th, 14th and 15th either in Boulder with the Skirt Sports crew or in your own backyard! The distance can be run on any of the three days listed, anyway you’d like to put in the miles.
Just like the Skirt Sports Half Marathon, there are three options to choose from, all including git certificates for Skirt Sports gear! The Basic package is $85 and gives you a $50 gift certificate, the Upgrade package is $125 and includes a $100 gift certificate or the Skirt Lover’s Paradise for $250, which gives you a $250 gift certificate. No matter which package you choose, you get awesome skirt fun! Not to mention that a portion of each entry goes to help fund the Kick Start Program, in which Skirt Sports mentors and supports Skirt Sisters looking to get their run on!
If that wasn’t all, Skirt Sports has made your entry fee for this fun virtual run even better! Every finisher of either the 10k or 10 miler will receive their choice of a pink Roll Down skirt, Free Me tee in white, or a black Marathon Chick skirt. No other race gives you this much awesomeness for your registration fee. And, if you’re like me, you can’t imagine your running life without skirt; what a better way to celebrate the creation of this great addition to the sport?
Skirt Sports has provided readers of my blog and skirt lovers with a discount code for 10% off registration for any of the three packages. Simply enter, 10on10ImIN when you register at http://www.skirtsports.com/10on10/. With race weekend just a little over two weeks away, be sure to sign up today to be sure you are a part of this fun and unique virtual race experience celebrating 10 years of Skirt Sports!
