JOIN OUR CHAMPION ATHLETES AND AMBASSADORS ON THE STARTING LINE!


Each year, the streets of cities like Chicago and New York City are flooded with thousands of runners who set out to complete 26.2 miles of the most storied races on the marathon circuit.

This fall, you can join our champion athletes as part of the Starting Line by running and fundraising on behalf of Play Like a Girl and helping to ensure that all girls have access to sport and physical activity.

If you have a guaranteed entry to any marathon or other race or are interested in running the
Play Like a Girl Global 5K and would like to contribute to our fundraising efforts, we would be honored to have you on the Starting Line!

LEARN MORE ABOUT STARTING LINE >>

Girls and women from around the world commit to run a marathon or other race of their choice at least once a year. And, on October 11 International Day of the Girl, we all join together as a single global team to run a 5K (that’s 3.1 miles) – all to raise funds to empower girls across the U.S. and Canada through key Play Like a Girl programs.

To recognize the powerful influence that sports can have on uniting people around the world, we are so excited to launch Play Like a Girl’s newest grassroots fundraising challenge – the Play Like a Girl Starting Line!

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

Each Starting Line member chooses a marathon, half marathon or other race to run on behalf of Play Like a Girl. Once registered, runners register with us and fundraise to keep girls in the game. We provide marathoners with running and fundraising tips. Plus, details about the girls and programs their run supports!

Then, on October 11, women and girls everywhere participate in our global “virtual” 5K, which means you can run wherever you are. You can complete the 3.1 miles alone, or you can create a team with your friends and run together. Each runner is encouraged to set an individual goal of raising $250, the full cost of helping one girl access sport and physical activity for one Play Like a Girl Club season.

Register by August 31st, 2018 to receive your Global 5K runner’s packet, including an awesome Play Like a Girl t-shirt and Global 5K race bib.
