Event description

Description

Here's the thing: When women run for office, they win at the same rates as men. And when they win, they tend to be really good at their jobs.

  • Female politicians are more likely to say they entered politics because of a specific policy concern, which means they're focused on actually getting stuff done.

  • They are more likely to sponsor bills, and women tend to keep their proposals alive longer, even when they're in the minority party.

  • They're more likely to reach across the aisle.

  • And if we learned anything from Senators Collins & Murkowski in the healthcare fight this summer, it's that female politicians are more likely to have a damn spine. (Okay, this last one isn't a sourced fact, but c'mon: you know women saved health care.)

So, basically, we need more people to run like girls.

Join MSP NOW and The Progressive North for the Run Like a Girl race, where we'll raise money for WomenWinning, a Minnesota-based organization that encourages, promotes, supports, and elects pro-choice women of all political parties to all levels of public office. Register today!


EVENT INFORMATION

Run Like a Girl will be held at Como Park on Saturday, October 7th. Registration begins at 8:00AM.

We're offering both a 5K run and a 2.5K run/walk, so the world is your oyster. The 5K run will start at 9:00AM and the 2.5K walk will start shortly thereafter.

Registration fees include a Run Like a Girl t-shirt*, running bib, and post-race drinks and snacks. Stay tuned for additional details around our speakers and post-race fun!

*NOTE: The registration deadline to guarantee a t-shirt is Friday, September 15th. While you may still register for the event after this deadline, a t-shirt is not guaranteed. A limited number of shirts will be available at registration on race day for those registering after the deadline.
