What’s a SoleMate?

Girls on the Run SoleMates

SoleMates is the charity running component of Girls on the Run. SoleMates participants are men and women who pursue individual athletic goals, such as running a marathon, half marathon, 10k or a 5k, to raise critically needed funds for Girls on the Run of Alachua so that the program can serve more girls. Training for any endurance event is often challenging and being a SoleMate is a great way to keep your training fun, to stay motivated and maintain your commitment to your individual goals.

Whether you are participating in your first or fiftieth marathon, by becoming a SoleMate you are doing much more than achieving your personal fitness goals. By asking friends to support your event training and participation with a donation on your behalf to Girls on the Run, you are showing your true commitment to the values we are instilling in girls everywhere to celebrate their physical and emotional health. Sign up today to be a SoleMates and let your love of running make a difference in the life of a girl.
