Amazing Aphrodite Run

1.7 & 3.1 miles – Female Only

September 17 | 8:30 AM

Jamaica Pond

 

Join BRR and Girls on the Run in a celebration of the power of women at BRR’s Jamaica Pond double-header: a 1.7-mile race for girls aged 7 to 18, and a 3.1-mile race directly after for ages 19 and up!

Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We’re honored to be partnered with them in our inaugural Women’s race.

If you’re not racing, please come and cheer on your sisters, wives, daughters, mothers, and friends. We’d also love to have you volunteer with us for the race.
