Girls on the Run!

On Sunday, 25 October 2009, join a bunch of us for Bangalore’s first women’s only running event – brought to you by RunnerGirlsIndia (RGI)! Come and run or walk with us! This Girls on the Run event is partnered with YLG Salon and Spa; each participant will receive a YLG Gift Voucher too. We would love to see women coming forward and joining us – and don’t worry if you’re not confident about running – the event is mainly to encourage all of you to get out your shoes and get walking, skipping and just out of bed – maybe to rediscover your love for the outdoors or a reason to walk and run! So drop your inhibitions – you have nothing to lose but some morning sleep – believe me – it’s totally worth it! The directions to the venue are on this page. Don’t forget to send off a mail to girlsontherun at runnergirlsindia.com register for the run!
