|2021-03-31||Ekkie Wedul||Updates to the Montana Women's Run for this Year, Our 40th Anniversary!|
|First, it is virtual so that you can run or walk anywhere and anytime you want, with whomever you want! All shirts will be mailed first class this year. We’ll start folding and putting them in envelopes and the mail as soon as the shirts are printed.|
You can record your time through RunSignUp if you want to, but there won’t be any awards since we are not holding you to exact courses.
Getting Started Clinics are back! Gather your safe “friends/family bubble” group and join us in Pioneer Park on Monday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30 to run or walk around the park. Meet on 3rd St. W. near the tennis court bathrooms April 5th – May 3rd. Perhaps you can help someone else “get started” walking or running! Sponsored by Archie Cochrane Ford.
Pat Jaffray Inspiration Award will be given out again this year. Nominate a woman who has inspired you or others to get moving! Help the Montana Women’s Run celebrate strong, giving and health inspiring women. Tell us why she needs to be celebrated for her strength, compassion and dedication to health and fitness. Find the link at www.womensrun.org. Sponsored by Neecee’s.
No Kids’ Run this year. Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org
Watch for information about the online “Photobooth,” sponsored by Scheels.
So, why register for the Montana Women’s Run when it is virtual again this year?
1. It gives you a reason to get with friends and family and walk or run, and just enjoy each other. Also, you will be “joining” women (and a few men) all over the world, if it’s anything like last year.Deadlines: T-shirt, Pat Jaffray Award nominations, Team Up …April 16, 2021.
2. You get a beautiful blue shirt – a long sleeve technical shirt this year!
3. You will be supporting women in the Billings area. In case you didn’t see it, last year we donated $90,000 from the proceeds from 4800 entries, and sponsors. The money went to 1) Billings Clinic Women’s Wellness Fund, 2) Billings YWCA, 3) Billings YMCA, 4) MT Amateur Sports Foundation for the Yellowstone Elementary cross-country meet, 5) and 6) scholarships for women in track or cross country at MSU-B and at Rocky Mountain College.
4. You already have all the shirts from the last 39 years, and you need to add to your collection!!
All registration closes at 6:00 pm, Thursday, May 6, 2021. All registration is online at RunSignUp.
Support our major sponsors: Billings Clinic, First Interstate Bank, the Planet 106.7, KTVQ2, ExxonMobil, and Graphic Imprints.
