A team of 6 SoleMates ran in the 2015 Sawtooth Relay for the first time.. boy what fun we had being close to home running in the beautiful valleys we travel often! We will plan to have a team in the 2018 race, and will require course volunteer help as well. If you're interested in either opportunity to help contribute to the program, please contact us. Here's a video the captured the spirit of being a SoleMate, and the beauty that we get to call home!
New in 2015, Girls on the Run had a SoleMate team in the local Sawtooth Relay race. This 6- person team will travel the 60 miles Stanley, along the beautiful Salmon River with the Sawtooth & White Cloud mountains on either side, up and over Galena pass, and down to Ketchum for an in town finish celebration. The race takes place in early June. If you're interested in joining the team as SoleMate (your entry fee will be covered!), please contact us!
Grand Teton Relay!
For the first time in the Summer of 2012 a team of 12 Wood River Valley women traveled to Aston, Idaho on the edge of the Teton mountains to run a combined length of 180 miles over two passes and beautiful mountain scenery which make up the course of the Grand Teton Relay. While SoleMates are often pursuing their own individual race goals, this team of women chose to travel together to race together, while doing it for something that is meaningful to them such as the Girls on the Run program. They happily agree to stink up their vans together, sleep in awkward places, and run in the middle of the night all for a great cause! Girls on the Run has been supported by this team effort each summer since. We are sadden that the race ended in 2017... we're in the process of considering a new race. Send us your suggestions.
