Looking for help finding your fitness motivation? 

Register for our 1st virtual 5K Race! 

Start training now and keep your running (or jogging or walking - here at Fit Armadillo, we're all about having you enjoy fitness at your place and YOUR pace!) motivation going this fall. Submit proof you ran 3.1 miles on our virtual race day (Sunday, December 17th 2017) and you'll be rewarded with a sparkly finisher's medal (mock up shown above) and get to be a part of our fundraising efforts for our favorite nonprofit, Girls on the Run!

Not motivated by racing bling that sparkles or giving back?

I'm not sure if we can be friends, but...please, don't leave yet, because we're making this race even COOLER ;) It's also going to be an East Coast vs. West Coast competition! Instead of donating proceeds to Girls on the Run International, we'll donate 100% of proceeds to two of our favorite Girls on the Run (GOTR) chapters. One on the east coast and one on the west coast. Pick the coast you want to raise money for when you sign up!

Our favorite east coast chapter is the newly formed Girls on the Run of Southern Maryland (GOTRSOMD). One of our Fit Armadillo trainers coaches for this chapter and if they sound familiar that's because you might have helped raise money for them before. Fit Armadillo founder, Catherine Bas, donated December sales of her new book to GOTRSOMD.  

Our favorite west coast chapter is Girls on the Run Los Angeles (GOTRLA), the chapter closest to Fit Armadillo headquarters that our founder was a head coach for this spring. You might have been inspired by learning about the amazing 3rd-5th grade girls on her team who ALL completed a 5K (our founder didn't run her 1st race until SEVENTH grade and it wasn't even 3 miles long - talk about a team of sheros!).

About the Race:

When: Complete your 5K (3.1 mile) race on December 17, 2017 (run, jog, walk, skip, crawl - go at your happy pace!)

Where: You choose the course and time yourself (report your finishing time to us via email). 

Why: Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K and to give back to our favorite nonprofit to help empower as girls through running (The Girls on the Run mission!). 

Cost: $17 EARLY BIRD (Register by 10/17/2017) $22 Regular Entry Fee (after 10/17).  Includes custom medal shipped directly to you IF you submit proof of finishing on race day (email us a picture of your watch, screen shot from your running app, etc.)  100 % of proceeds will be donated to Girls on the Run Los Angeles or Girls on the Run of Southern Maryland (you pick which one when you sign up).
