Jog It Out At SHAPE Women's Half-Marathon
It's that time of year again, when strong, hardworking gals from around the globe come to New York City in hopes of running together, towards a better future. On Sunday, April 30th, the 14th Annual SHAPE Women’s Half-Marathon is taking place in none other than Central Park!
Sponsored by the New York Road Runners (NYRR), the half-marathon will bring together women of all ages and abilities for a 13.1 mile race through the iconic park. And if you participate, you may even see some celebrities trotting alongside you!
Runners will be jogging in support of CARE’s fight against global poverty, in addition to celebrating the second anniversary of the Women Run the World™ Relay & Mentorship Program. The program pairs race honorees with young girls from the NYRR Run for the Future program, a fitness scholarship program for high school seniors, to run or walk a one-mile leg of the race in a relay team. Mentees will also spend a day at work or participate in a mentorship conversation with their honoree.
