Run Like a Girl Bellingham (RLAG) is a non-competitive event for folks (male or female) who just want to get out and have some non-competitive fun. Never participated in a half marathon or 10k before? No problem! You can go as far as you feel comfortable. There's no pressure to complete the entire distance.
Worried about the pace? Please understand that we use the word "run" loosely. Go as slow or as fast as you'd like. Most of our participants walk and if you're concerned you won't make the 4 hour cut off, get an early start or turn around early.
We'll mark each mile celebratory style. Just to give a hint – this is probably the only half marathon you'll get to proudly wear your very own dazzling tiara. And it wouldn't be "girl-style" if we didn't offer the chocolate mile, and other fun surprises along the way.
Receive a beautiful one-of-a-kind finisher's medal hand-made by a local artist when you cross the finish line. You will be personally adorned with this by our very own local firefighters.
Massages will be available after all your hard work. Along with other snacks & treats to help you get your energy back.
Of course, we can't tell you everything. Come experience it for yourself! And bring a friend.
All proceeds are donated to Girls on the Run, Washington.
