At Sole Girls, girls learn tools for life skills, confidence, being responsible and being healthy in a safe and interactive environment. During the program, girls will mentally and physically prepare to run a 5km fun run at the end of the season. Our Sessions include a Sole Girls t-shirt, Playbook and a healthy snack.
(**The 5km run registration is not included)
Sunscreen (for sunny days)
Clothes for running (see above)
If it is raining, a change of dry clothes for afterwards.
Running shoes are the most important piece of running gear you can have because they reduce the shock of hitting the ground each step. They are also made to fit your foot properly so that you can avoid blisters.

The end of season 5km fun run for the girls Weekly Session is depending on location. Once registered, we will provide you the details on which run your girl will be training for. Your girl has the opportunity to participate in three 5km fun run every year with Sole Girls.
The curriculum is based on all girls participating in all the sessions in the 8–10 week program. The development of trust and individual training and empowerment depends on all girls participation. If you have a previous arrangement please contact us in advance email@example.com to see how we can best help you.
Sole Girls will be expanding into more neighbourhoods soon! Let us know where you are and where you would like to see a Sole Girls program by sending us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lunch is not provided during our programs. Girls who are attending full-day Workshops or Sole Girls Camps, will need to bring a healthy lunch with them (unless stated otherwise). At our Weekly Sessions, we do provide a healthy, allergy-free snack like fruit, bars or granola.
