The SoleMates Challenge

The kids are back in school, the heat is starting to dissipate, and you’ve got a tiny bit of free time on your hands. What to do? Fall is a great time to strive for an end-of-year fitness and health goal.  Here at Girls on the Run, we are committed to helping you and our GOTR girls be active and healthy. So we challenge you to join us this Fall. We’ll help you meet those fitness goals so you’re feeling your best by the Holiday Season.

What’s a SoleMate®?

Charity running has become an integral part of most endurance events across the country. Training for any endurance event is often challenging and being a SoleMate is a great way to keep it fun, stay motivated and maintain your commitment.

The Girls on the Run SoleMates program provides adults an opportunity to raise money for Girls on the Run while training for the athletic event of their choice. SoleMates set personal goals such as running in a marathon or 10k event to raise money for Girls on the Run in their community. Each year, our SoleMates raise critically needed funds that ensure our councils are able to serve more girls in their communities.

Here’s what you get when you sign up:

•             Weekly blogs containing healthy recipes to support your running, running tips, inspirational stories, and more!

•             A customized training plan

•             Optional Saturday group runs to help motivate you to go the distance.

•             An online community of runners going through exactly what you’re going through via Facebook SoleMates page where you can interact with your fellow Treasure Valley participants, make running dates with buddies, and hopefully form lifelong friendships.

•             Access to a certified health and nutrition coach to answer all of your nutrition and running questions

•             Super cool prizes

•             Way more fun than you should be having running that far
