Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
The 20-lesson Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-15 girls, we teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.
Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.
You can sign up to be a running buddy or you can use this race, which features a FLAT course, to set a new 5K PR!
Blood Rock 50K
Blood Rock 50K Trail Race is part of the final race in the 2016 Mountain High Outfitters Southeastern Trail Series. The race will take place at Oak Mountain State Park, starting and ending at the Fishing Center Pavilion at the north gate. The race will start at 6:30 AM. (Sunrise on the 19th is 6:24 a.m. and sunset is 4:42 p.m.) The 50K course will be a single loop course circling most of the park. The first 25 miles of the race will follow the same course as the 50 Mile Race. At the Marina Aid Station #4, 50K runners will return to the Finish. Aid Stations will range between 3 miles and 6 miles with one exception. The distance between AS 1 and AS 2 will be almost 10 miles. This will be the most difficult 10 miles of the race and will take much longer to run than you will expect. Carry plenty of water!
One of my goals for this year, a long-distance trail race!!!
The Cumberland Plateau Stage Race is a three-day stage race that provides runners and guest with amazing food, guest speakers, hard running, trail clinics, lots of activities, craft beer, and dance parties. Each day holds a different distance at the beautiful East Fork Stables, which is a stone’s throw from Big South Fork State Park. While the main focus of this event is trail running, Hardwin Adventures, with the help of some great sponsors, is also putting together a host of fun activities during the day for participants and their guests.
A NIGHTTIME RACE??? YES YES YES! I am thrilled about this opportunity!

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is challenging and inspiring Nashville residents to be more physically active. Thousands of Nashvillians “stepped up to the challenge” in each of the last two years, including more than 5,000 in each of the first two years, by participating in the Mayor’s Challenge 5K Walk/Run and Kids' Fun Run - the city’s only free 5K event with a free six-week training program offered through Metro Parks & Recreation. As one of Mayor Dean’s most popular health events to date, the Mayor’s Challenge 5K brings out Nashvillians of all ages and fitness levels to walk and run the streets of downtown Nashville. The event also includes a Kids’ Fun Run, a 0.75-mile course for children 12 years of age and under.
I love Mayor Karl Dean. He has had a major impact on Nashville in so many ways. Mayor Karl Dean is also a big supporter of GOTR, he always starts off our Spring 5K! Join my team and run or walk this FREE event!!
