There are two things that will never go out of style: being healthy and being sexy! Join Black Girls RUN! in its first national “Black Girls Run! Preserve the Sexy Tour.” Starting January 2013, Black Girls RUN! will travel to cities in the “Stroke Belt” that have some of the highest obesity rates in the United States to host one-day health and fitness clinics. The Stroke Belt is a name given to the Southeastern region of the United States by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for having an unusually high incidence of stroke and other forms of cardiovascular disease. These health and fitness clinics will share Black Girls RUN!’s unique “Walk Before You RUN!” training program, guiding women in their journey from walking to running. Participants will also receive information and tools on choosing the best running gear, hair maintenance tips, nutrition and healthy eating, and more.
Participants attending the “Walk Before You RUN!” clinics will receive a comprehensive toolkit to get them out of the door and onto the pavement. The “Preserve the Sexy” tour stops include:
January 5 – Nashville, Tennessee
February 2 – Birmingham, Alabama
February 9 – Miami, Florida
March 16 – Richmond, Virginia
April 20 – Atlanta, Georgia
May 11 – Jackson, Mississippi
June 8 – Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina
The tour is open to beginner runners, walkers, non-Black Girls RUN! members and current Black Girls RUN! members. Click here to register for the January 5, Nashville, Tennessee tour stop.
