SoleMates® Charity Athletes

SoleMates are men and women who use their passion for GOTR and personal athletic goals to raise money in support of the Girls on the Run St. Louis mission to empower girls for a lifetime of healthy living. 100% of the funds raised by GOTRSTL SoleMates directly supports participants.
We have had Solemates run in Memphis, Nashville, Florida and beyond (and of course, St. Louis)! The race you choose is up to you - REGISTER as a Solemate and then sign up for your goal race! Your fundraising minimum will depend on your event and we'll provide fun incentives for meeting fundraising goals. Most importantly, you will be directly supporting Girls on the Run St. Louis so that even more girls can be empowered for a lifetime of healthy living!
