If you’re in the Vancouver,
Washington area this weekend, you
won’t want to miss the Skirt Chaser 5k Race and Block Party. The Skirt Chaser
series was created in conjunction with Skirt Sports, the women’s running
apparel company that revolutionized fitness fashion with the advent of the
first-ever running skirt. Company founder Nicole DeBoom infuses all her
projects with a fun, feisty, flirty attitude, and the race series is no
different. Women take a 3-minute head start on the 3-mile course, followed by
men in hot pursuit. The overall winner – male or female – snags a $500 prize, and
every runner enjoys the happy hour style post-race block party celebration.
The Vancouver event takes
place Saturday, August 7th, followed by the Denver race on August 28th.
