Explore 2016 outside with Black Girls Run! and REI!
When you register for the REI Explorer 5K or 10K, you'll receive each item perfectly bundled in a custom Black Girls RUN! REI Explorer gift box:
- Our exclusive Black Girls RUN! + REI Explorer race medal
- A REI luggage tag (for all of your amazing travels)
- Our favorite BGR! logo tee! This is perfect virtual race starter pack for you or one of your girlfriends!
- Three 15-minute walking meditation audio file downloads to help you find your zen while you run or walk from the Outdoor Journal Tour. Meditations will cover 3 topics (power, freedom, and peace). You will also receive a short how-to guide on using the meditations with a detailed summary of each meditation's benefits.
- Download of Black Girls RUN!'s "Treadmills Don't Suck" e-book
You’re encouraged to run your race at one of these parks, but of course, virtual runs can be completed anywhere. So get your Explorer on, and find a new favorite course!
Register by: October 21, 2016 (spaces limited)
Run on: October 22, 2016
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1) Register here for the virtual race. You don't have to select a 5K or 10K - that part is up to you!
2) Connect with your local Black Girls RUN! group! Many of our groups will gather to complete the Black Girls RUN! Virtual Race together. You can join Black Girls RUN! and/or find a group in your city by visiting and creating a profile on our website.
4) Plan your run! Choose a location, and remember to map your course before you head out the door to complete the full 3.1 miles (5K), 6.2 miles (10K). Distances can be completed in one day or over the course of several days! Just make sure you complete it by the end of race day. Looking for a course? Consider a run at a nearby national park: http://findyourpark.com/
6) Hit the pavement alone or with your BGR! crew on October 22. Just get it in, no matter your pace, location, or time you run.
7) Once you’ve completed your run, upload your race time to our virtual race roster!
Congratulations! You did it! You will receive your race bling no later than 3 weeks after the event. ;)
