Parking is Free on Weekends.
Note: In order to ensure a smooth start and for the sanity of all volunteers, there will be NO RACE DAY REGISTRATIONS. So sign up early to reserve your spot. Last year, we sold out early and sadly, had to turn many girlfriends away.

Start Time:

Race Starts at 9:00am sharp. It’s always wise to get to an event at least 30-60 minutes ahead of schedule to ensure you’ve got enough time to get organized, take a potty break and not feel rushed.

Please don’t leave this to the last minute – it makes for a hectic race start. A good girlfriend is considerate of these kinds of things. :)

Event Description:

How do you describe your best girlfriend?
You love to hang with her – no matter what you’re doing.
You can tell her anything without judgment.
She inspires you to do and be better.
She lifts you up and empowers you.
She helps you to see the bright side when you’re going through a tough time.
You can laugh and cry and sometimes just do nothing with her.
So who is your best girlfriend? Is it your mom, your sis, your daughter, someone you’ve known for years or someone you just met recently? One thing is consistent – it’s someone you connect with on a deep level, a soul sister. And bottom line - when girlfriends get together they can accomplish anything! There’s nothing better, more beautiful than a bunch of strong, powerful, passionate women on a mission! And that’s why collectively, as a group of determined gals, we can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Plus when you cross the finish line, you can’t imagine how that positively impacts YOUR entire life.
The sense of accomplishment you will feel is unbelievable and it will provide you with the strength and confidence to conquer anything in your life. So – “Go Girlfriend Go Girlfriend Go!”
