SOUTH PORTLAND, ME

JOIN US ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF TITLE IX AND OLYMPIC DAY FOR A UNIQUE, INSPIRING, INCLUSIVE RACE.

 

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL LEVELS, AGES, GENDERS, STROLLERS, WALKERS, IN-PERSON, VIRTUAL, AND ALL! 

WHY WE RUN:

We run to break assumptions and build a community that empowers girls and women! This race is open to everyone, regardless of gender or background. It's not just about running; it's about challenging stereotypes and showcasing the power of unity in sports. Inspired by Coach Katie Stannard’s experience, where assumptions often overshadowed her leadership, we're turning frustration into positive action. By lacing up your sneakers and hitting the pavement, you're supporting a mission that uplifts women and challenges preconceptions. Let's run together, break barriers, and prove that anyone can accomplish incredible goals when given the opportunity and belief. Join the movement and make a difference—one stride at a time!

Register to Run : 5k | 10k | Virtual

JOIN THE FUN:

We are excited to be hosting the 2nd annual Just A Girl Run on June 23rd, 2024 AT 8:00AM. In addition to the 5k we'll be introducing a new 10k option for runners. This year, our run coincides with the anniversary of Title IX and celebrates Olympic Day, adding an extra layer of significance to the occasion.

Whether you're lacing up your running shoes or planning to be a spirited spectator, make your way to Bug Light State Park in Portland, ME, for a day filled with joy and camaraderie. Female College Athletes are volunteering to run lots of games and Olympic themed activites, so be sure to bring the kids along! 

For those who want to support the SG United Foundation but prefer to skip the run, no worries – you can contribute by making a donation below or by volunteering! Your generosity is greatly appreciated, and every contribution helps us in our mission to empower females across the state to aim high and achieve their goals. Rest assured, all proceeds from the event will directly benefit the SG United Foundation. Thank you for joining us in making a positive impact!

"Just A Girl 5k was the first race I participated in and I can honestly say I cannot wait for the next one! The atmosphere made me feel as though I could have run 10 miles, and I am not a runner.  The support and encouragement I witnessed that day was inspiring and although one 5k a year may be enough for me, I am proud to participate in this one."
