Black Girls RUN! is painting the Nation pink and black in 2013 and we are coming to a city near you!Black Girls RUN! is proud to announce its 2013 National Race Schedule. Members and supporters are encouraged to sign up for these races and conferences, and join the BGR! Nation as we continue to fight the obesity epidemic across our country. “We’re excited to release our 2013 National race schedule,” said Ashley Hicks, co-founder of Black Girls RUN. “These events give our members an opportunity to meet and fellowship together, all while completing their first race or adding to their collection of ‘bling’. This year we focused on increasing our presence on the West as we will be adding several Black Girls RUN! groups along the coast in 2013.” One of the highlights of our 2013 schedule is The Black Girls Run! “Preserve the Sexy Tour” (PTST). This tour will travel to U.S. cities in the “Stroke Belt,” which have some of the highest obesity rates in the country, to host one-day health and fitness clinics.
