Fast and Female Girl’s Run

Fast and Female’s annual Girl’s Runs are fun runs for girls ages 5-12 alongside our REAL (Relatable, Empowered, Active Leaders) including Olympians, Paralympians, athletes, coaches and allies, held in Canmore, Alberta! The event includes a warm up activity led by a local facilitator and time to chat with our REAL Role Models.

Rocky Mountain Soap has generously partnered with us for this event, for many years. The event runs alongside the Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run. Participants get to run on part of the Women’s Run course and cross the finish line the same way all of the amazing women do all weekend. It’s the ultimate combination of girl and women power in Canmore.

This Year's Girls' Run

In 2023 we have made some changes and additions to the Girls’ Run, to make it the best experience possible for everyone involved. The first change is that the distances have been updated to a 1km and 2.5 km fun run. We are also piloting an Add-On Program for girls to have an opportunity to connect even more with REAL Role Models, and take the pressure off of women running the same day.

We are excited to be adding a program for girls aged 13-17. We are adding in a Leaders In Training program, for youth girls to learn and gain mentorship from REAL Role Models. This is a fun way to earn volunteer hours and connect with Role Models.

We have launched a Community Meet Up, leading up to the Girls’ Run. This will include an inspirational chat and Q&A session with some of the REAL Role Models that will be at the Run. Come out and see us Friday May 26th!
