SoleMates/Charity Athletes

Do you have a passion for the Girls on the Run mission and want to help?

The Girls on the Run SoleMates program provides a great opportunity to give girls an example of healthy living.  By joining Girls on the Run SoleMates, you can play a vital role in ensuring the future success of Girls on the Run programs that impact on the lives of thousands of young women every year.

SoleMates is the adult charity running leg of Girls on the Run. We are male and female athletes of all ages and abilities who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon, to raise money for our local Girls on the Run Council.

Your personal goals, like running a 5k, a half or full marathon, or completing a triathlon, can help thousands of young girls live their own dreams.

There is only a $10 entry fee to become a SoleMate but we require all SoleMates to raise a minimum of $150 to support GOTR-ME. Your $10 entry fee (your personal donation) counts towards your fundraising minimum. 

UPDATE:  The first 5 GOTR-ME SoleMates to register beginning July 1, 2014 will receive a FREE Garmin watch! (watch is refurbished) Thank you National Sponsor Garmin!
