The Girls on the Run SoleMates program provides people an opportunity to raise money for Girls on the Run while training for the athletic event of their choice. (We’d love for you to join us at our signature event, Sharkbite Half Marathon & 5k!) SoleMates set personal goals such as running in a marathon or 10K event to raise money for Girls on the Run in their community. Each year, our SoleMates raise critically needed funds that ensure our councils are able to serve more girls in their communities.

More than 8,000 SoleMates have participated in events in the United States, Canada, France and China and have raised nearly $5 million for Girls on the Run councils.

Whether you are participating in your first or fiftieth event, 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 SoleMate and let your love of running make a difference in the life of a girl.

Here’s how it works:
  • Register for an event (it can be anything!… 5k, marathon, obstacle course, biking, etc). Our signature event is the Sharkbite Half Marathon & 5k! You MUST register for this race separately from SoleMates. SoleMates is not responsible for your race registration. We do not provide race entries!
  • Sign up to be a SoleMate! Your $13 registration fee allows you to access our exclusive Facebook page, fundraising tips and tricks, and your SoleMates t-shirt to wear during training!
  • Set your goals and raise pledges. As a SoleMate, you are pledging to raise a minimum of $131 by one month AFTER the event. (All pledges are due by February 20th, 2019.)
  • Crush your goals & earn some awesome SoleMates swag! In exchange, you’ll receive access to our EXCLUSIVE pre- and post- party, the chance to “level up” for more enticing levels of swag, and more!
