SoleMates

Are you an athlete or training for your first event?

Do you have a passion for the Girls on the Run mission and want to help?

The Girls on the Run SoleMates program provides a great opportunity to give girls an example of healthy living.  By joining Girls on the Run SoleMates, you can play a vital role in ensuring the future success of Girls on the Run programs that impact the lives of thousands of young women every year.

What is the Girls on the Run Utah SoleMates program?

SoleMates is the adult charity running leg of Girls on the Run. We are male and female athletes of all ages and abilities who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon, to raise money for our local Girls on the Run Council.

Your personal goals, like running a 5k, a half or full marathon, or completing a triathlon, can help thousands of young girls live their own dreams.

Who can be a SoleMate?

A SoleMate is anyone in the community who supports the mission of Girls on the Run Utah to “inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running” through charitable giving and/or fundraising on behalf of the program.

What is the SoleMate commitment?

  • Although we do not have a fundraising minimum, we encourage all SoleMates to raise at least $185, the cost of a full scholarship for a girl to participate in our life-changing program.
  • Find and register for an athletic event of your choice to train for & complete on behalf of GOTR Utah
  • Register online as a SoleMate for a $20 annual donation. (This annual donation allows you to be a SoleMate for as many events as you would like during the year.).
  • Create your fundraising page and share it to meet your
    goal! 100% of your donations will go directly to GOTR Utah and used to deliver the program to more girls!

What do SoleMates get in return?

  • Personal and customizable online fundraising tool through our website
  • SoleMates training technical t-shirt & SoleMates car decal
  • Running training programs developed by Jenny Hadfield
  • The extra satisfaction and motivation of knowing you are TRAINING FOR A REASON — to change the lives of girls across Utah!
