Hey ladies, do you love running, especially in a skirt? Then, the Skirt Sports Virtual Half Marathon is for you! Every year, Skirt Sports puts on a half marathon in Colorado, but you don’t have to travel to be a part of the #RUNcelebration. You can run just where you are, with your girlfriends (or guy friends, it really isn’t just for the ladies, guys are more than welcome).
The actual Skirt Sports Half Marathon takes place on June 1st in Louisville, Colorado. If you live close by, or want to head out to the actual event, that’s awesome! Otherwise, the virtual option is one that works for everyone. When you run a Skirt Sports race, it’s a special one! All race runners or walkers receive some amazing swag with their registration. All racers receive a race bib, goody bag full of sponsor deals and samples, a finisher roll down skirt or finisher go-getter tank. There are two different virtual levels of participation; $85 for basic registration gets you a $50 Skirt Sports gift certificate and $115 upgraded registration gets you a $100 gift certificate. Talk about awesome perks!
The Skirt Sports Half Marathon is a #RUNcelebration that celebrates running as a woman. It’s all about helping one another hit that pavement and just get out there to run. The race itself benefits the Skirt Sports Kick Start Program. It is a beginner running program that pairs women who want to run, but can’t due to various fitness barriers with Personal Motivators. Those Personal Motivators are women who have found strength, confidence, freedom and much more through running. Skirt Sports provides the runners with an 8-week training program, running apparel, nutrition advice, free entries to their first 5k, and most importantly, support of other women who have been there before.
What inspires you to get out and run? For me, it’s a freeing experience. I feel empowered and stronger when I run. I also love those endorphins, that amazing feeling that running gives me when I’m out on the open road. It’s a feeling like no other. I love the way Skirt Sports helps inspire new runners to feel the same way.
