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. Fundraising minimums need to be met on or before 30 days post-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
  • Discounts from GOTR sponsors when available and incentives when going above your fundraising minimum
  • Simple on-line fundraising through Raceplanner and a fundraising guide
  • Extra motivation for running for a reason – to change the lives of young girls!
