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!

About Kelly Barten (1146 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
