Skirt Sports, the maker of the first ever running skirt, is celebrating their 10 year anniversary!
I didn’t even know that the run skirt is even 10 years old… like most things, I just took it for granted. Like can you remember a time without a run skirt?! But like the internet, there existed a time in which life continued without a run skirt (*shudder*). In 2003, founder Nicole DeBoom, was out on a training run and upon passing her reflection in a glass window, decided that women shouldn’t have to sacrifice femininity for performance.
Nicole took to the task of creating the world’s first-ever women’s fitness skirt, turning heads as she raced to victory in the 2004 Ironman Wisconsin in her hand-sewn prototype. And 3 days later, Skirt Sports was founded.
And to celebrate, Skirt Sports is hosting a 10 year anniversary fun run (untimed) at Boulder, Colorado at Skirt Headquarters for a 10k or 10 mile untimed with other Skirt Sisters. And I want you to join me and my fellow SweatPink ambassadors on this fun run! If you’re local or visiting, here is the 411:
- Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 8:00 am
- Skirt Sports HQ’s at 6205 Lookout Road, Suite G, Boulder, CO 80301
- Fun Run Race Day Registration will be open
- You may pick up your packet that morning
- RSVP to email@example.com so that they can plan post-run food and drinks!
- Please note you must be registered for the virtual race to join.
Not based in Colorado or visiting? Don’t fret! You can run virtually – in your own neighborhood, park, treadmill, or wherever! When is this all happening? September 13 through the 15th.
What does it cost? Good question!
There are 3 options to choose from, all which all include gift certificates for Skirt Sports gear!
- The Basic package is $85 and gives you a $50 gift certificate;
- The Upgrade package is $125 and includes a $100 gift certificate; OR
- The Skirt Lover’s Paradise for $250, which gives you a $250 gift certificate.
No matter which package you choose, you get awesome skirt fun! Not to mention that a portion of each entry goes to help fund the Kick Start Program, in which Skirt Sports mentors and supports Skirt Sisters looking to get their run on!
And even better, through FitApproach and Skirt Sports, you can save 10% on your registration fee with code: SkirtPink10. Again all registrations include a gift card to Skirt Sports and that cannot be beat! You will also get an awesome swag bag which will include the following: Your lucky #10 race bib, Finisher Award, and other samples!
But hurry – registration is only open for a limited time - #10on10 registration is open until September 15.
I am really excited for this and can’t wait to join in on the fun! I have to do 12 miles that weekend myself as part of NYC Marathon training soooo I am excited to partake on 10 on 10 because it’s for a good cause and I was going to have to run the miles anyway, so I might as well get something cute out of it and help their mentoring program. I have a pair of the pants with the skirt and it’s one of the most flattering and comfortable things I have ever worn. [Disclaimer: bought with my own $$]
Have you ever worn a run skirt? If not, would you try it? Come join!
