Women 4 Women is launching the Filly, Kentucky’s first women’s-only half-marathon, on June 10 at the Parklands. The Filly also offers a four-mile run/walk for women and girls who prefer a shorter distance. Registration is $75 for the half-marathon and $55 for the four-miler.
“We couldn’t be more excited to launch the Filly here in Louisville,” said Misty Cruse, executive director for Women 4 Women. “Women are fighting every day for their voice, for their freedom, and for the opportunity to prove they are strong enough. On June 10 mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends will gather on the starting line strong and united, and we hope the men will show up to cheer us on.”
The Women 4 Women Filly Half-Marathon is also working alongside grant recipient, Girls on the Run Louisville to bring the community the SoleMates program. The Girls on the Run SoleMates program provides people an opportunity to raise money for Girls on the Run while training for the Filly races. SoleMates set personal goals to raise money for Girls on the Run Louisville.
Volunteer opportunities are available. For more information or to register, visit http://www.w4w.org or contact [email protected].
