June 5K

SS - Logo 5K (RGB)Join us on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at 6pm for an un-timed 5K that you can run or walk.  There is a HUG station, chocolate station, 3 (THREE!) cheer/water stops, DJ on course, fire fighters and simply put, the prettiest finisher’s medal you’ll ever get. Plus, you get to pick your own swag! Check out our registration site for your options, you could get a purple, women’s cut, technical t-shirt, shoe BLING or/and a TUTU!

Perhaps you love tutus, or maybe you’ve never thought much one way or the other.  We have a very specific reason for running in tutus and for giving them out at Sole Sisters.  If you do not know our story please take time to read our story here.

 

 

Race & Route

For the Sole Sisters Women’s 5K Race we encourage all participates to walk (there is NO parking at the start/finish area) to the start-line on Wilkinson Avenue (this is adjacent to Action Car & Truck at 581 Wright Avenue) from Dartmouth Crossing’s stage near the Hampton Inn.   Go listen to music from 4-5pm or just plan to be there at 5pm for race announcements and to see Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club graduate. We will be walking sometime between 5:15 and 5:30pm.  This is the time to enjoy the feeling of solidarity and community when the Sole Sisters make their way to the start-line for the 6pm race!
