Womxn Run the Vote Relay – September 21-27

Are you on a team yet for the Womxn Run The Vote Relay?

This is an epic relay: 680 miles run by teams of 15-20 people, symbolizing the distance from Atlanta, Georgia to Washington, D.C. $23 from each registration is donated to the non-profit Black Votes Matter, and registration is set at only $30/person.

As of now, there are nearly 650 teams and more than 7,500 athletes that have signed up, and the relay is still more than 10 days away. It’s completely virtual – you can run it from anywhere. If you don’t have a team, there is team matching available through Insta & Twitter (search #WomxnRunTheVote) or you can join one of three umbrella teams of unaffiliated individuals: Team Iron, Team Cobalt, and Team Mercury.

Registration also secures you an invitation to a virtual event featuring LaTosha Brown, Co-Founder of Black Voters Matter. The virtual event is fittingly scheduled for National Voter Registration Day – September 22. Both the relay and the LaTosha Brown event are being organized by Oiselle, a leader in women’s running.

Check it out, find or make a team, and spread the work about this virtual relay! Tell everyone – even your non-running friends … because participants can walk, bike, swim, ride, row, or even play sports with ways to track “distance” with all types of movement!

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
