As runners, we love a challenge. We love proving to ourselves that we are capable of more. We love the freedom that comes with running. We love to overcome. But man, 2020 sure has been more than we bargained for! If you're ready to get your motivation back, get back on the road to your running goals, and end the year feeling confident, strong, and in control, let's kiss 2020 goodbye and run headfirst into 2021!
Do this for yourself, and help change the lives of others in the process!
We are so excited to be partnering with the Girls Gotta Run Foundation, empowering girls and women in Ethiopia through running, education, and entrepreneurship. A portion of the race proceeds and all donations will go towards their work of helping girls in Ethiopia. They provide running programs, education scholarships, health needs, and more to encourage girls to stay in school past 5th grade. Find out more about this great organization at www.girlsgottarun.org
