Join SoleMates®, the adult charity running program of Girls on the Run!

Joining SoleMates is a great way for you to make a difference for local Girls on the Run® chapter. You can walk, run or bike in any event of your choice and raise funds for our organization. With your support, the message of health and wellness that Girls on the Run brings will continue to spread and grow.

Want to use the power of running to make a difference in the life of a girl? Join Girls on the Run SoleMates, our charity running program. We are a team of male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or 5K, or completing a triathlon or cycling event, to raise money for one of our over 250 Girls on the Run councils in the United States and Canada.

Individuals can sign up to run/walk/bike in any event of their choice and participate in Girls on the Run SoleMates. Registration for SoleMates does not include registration to the actual race. The runner/walker must still register for the event of their choice independently. These are two separate registrations.

Girls on the Run’s support for our SoleMates athletes includes:

  • Easy online registration process
  • Premiums from GOTR SoleMates sponsors
  • Simple online fundraising through Raceplanner
  • Potential for participation in “in person” group training runs (varies per council)
  • Inspirational emails from Girls on the Run to keep you motivated
  • Extra motivation of running for a reason – to change the lives of girls!

Girls on the Run SoleMates participants agree to pay a non-refundable $20 fee upon their registration. This amount will not be applied toward their minimum fundraising goal. By registering for our charity running program the participant agrees to raise a minimum of $250 for the Girls on the Run council of their choice on or before thirty (30) days after completing the race, or be personally responsible for this amount
