GOTR SoleMates

Join Girls on the Run - DC SoleMates, our adult charity running program. SoleMates are individuals or teams (men and women) who pursue personal goals, such as running a marathon or a 10k, or completing a triathlon or cycling event, while raising money to help young girls in Washington, DC live their own dreams. SoleMate fundraising helps provide program scholarships to girls who could not otherwise participate in the life-changing program.
