Amazing Aphrodite Run
September 17 | 9:00 AM
Join BRR and Girls on the Run in a celebration of the power of women at BRR’s Jamaica Pond.
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.

DIRECTIONS & PARKING
Parking has been known to be an issue, so plan accordingly and you’ll be on time to take part in one of the best races of this summer!
Take the MBTA if possible to reduce traffic, parking congestion, and ecological impact.
There will be a safe place to store your personal items.
Do not check any valuables. Although we will do our best to ensure that your gear is waiting for you at the end of the race, we are not responsible for lost items and/or gear check bags.
There are restrooms available near the Start. Please respect the surroundings to ensure we are able to continue using the park as our home base.
