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.

Athletes may sign up to participate in any running, walking, cycling, swimming, or multi-sport event of their choice and participate in our GOTR-DC SoleMate Program. Registration for SoleMates is $35, and fundraising minimums vary by event.

Support for our SoleMate athletes includes:

  • Easy online registration
  • Exclusive SoleMate technical t-shirt upon registration
  • An exclusive GOTR-DC SoleMate Training Guide for those participating in a half marathon or full marathon
  • Premiums from GOTR sponsors, including a 25-35% discount on a Garmin fitness watch
  • Simple on-line fundraising through Raceplanner
  • Extra motivation for running for a reason – to change the lives of young girls!

City vs. City 5K Run - Baltimore vs. Washington DC on 10/4

Run. Give. Challenge

City vs. City Run is a first of its kind event giving you the chance to prove your hometown is the best!

Twin 5k races taking place in different locations, and each runner’s time contributes to an overall winning City.  Runners line up at the same time in Baltimore, MD as they line up in Washington, DC to run 3.1 miles hoping to beat the average time of their rival city.  

City vs. City encourages you to give back to the community by competing to raise the most money possible for a local DC charity.  Girls on the Run - DC has partnered with City vs. City to be a local charity for Washington DC runners. A portion of the proceeds will be divided amongst the participating charities across both cities.  And finally, you can team up with runners from your city to challenge a group of friends to beat your average time. 

Run for charity. Run for yourself.  Run for your team.  But most important in this race, RUN FOR YOUR CITY!

SoleMates: The City vs. City 5K is a fun way to just participate and at the same time raise funds for GOTR-DC without setting up your own fundraiser. Your registration alone supports the girls!
