May 13th, 2014 – Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports is excited to announce a partnership with SheJumps for the Real Girls Run Half Marathon and 5k this fall. With this relationship, SheJumps’ local Richmond chapter will be leading a virtual training program for women targeting the November 23rd Half Marathon and 5k.

“Our mission at SheJumps is to increase the participation of women in outdoor activities, and we couldn't be happier about partnering with Bad to the Bone,” said Cristy Watson, Southeast Regional Coordinator for SheJumps. “Creating a 16-week training program, where women can support each other as they train for the race, fits in well with our mission and desire to create a community of woman who are passionate about being active in the outdoors and eager to share that passion with others.”

2014 will be the 4th running of the Real Girls Run 5k, and the second year for the half marathon which exploded in popularity last year. “We’ve found that women are really aiming for that half marathon goal right now,” says Alyssa Godesky, the Director of Marketing for Bad to the Bone. “Partnering with SheJumps to create a training program to help participants reach their goal is a huge piece of the puzzle, and we’re thrilled to be making this happen!”

There will be training options for both the 5k and the half marathon. The training program will be $30 and signups are available at www.badtothebone.biz. Race registration for both the Real Girls Run Half Marathon and 5K is also now open at www.badtothebone.biz. The program will be suitable for runners of all abilities.
