The first ever 5K run / walk for plus size women in the United States, this event was created to encourage and embrace women by providing a safe place where they can embark on this challenge together in a supportive environment.
We think this sounds amazing!
You’ll be cheered on by other women, feel that incredible support and love, as well as be inspired by the positive energy surrounding you. Crossing that finish line will feel even more incredible as you accomplish this run/walk with your fellow plus size sisters.
So kudos to the folks behind The Plus Strut™ because this is an event that will show that health cannot be diagnosed by looking at someone and it defies the stereotype that plus size people are lazy and not active.
The Plus Strut is for all fitness levels. The goal is to finish and not where you rank.
This event is taking pace on Saturday, May 5, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia at Chastain Memorial Park. The race fee is $35 + a $3 sign up fee. Click here for more information and to sign up.
If you’re still hesitant because this is something you’ve never done before, the folks over at The Plus Strut™ have also created The Strut Club™. It’s the official training group for The Plus Strut™, where they’ll have scheduled 5K training sessions, to get you ready for the big event in a community environment. They also have an Instagram page for the club here.
We’re loving the sisterhood community vibe of this event and can’t wait for it to take place in other cities across the US and Canada.
