Amazing Aphrodite Run
1.7 & 3.1 miles – Female Only
September 17 | 8:30 AM
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.
