Kick Start

The Skirt Sports Kick Start program offers women with barriers to fitness who otherwise couldn't or wouldn't participate in a 5k due to family obligations, lifestyle or health, a life-changing chance to train for and complete a 5k race. Kick Start provides Racers a training plan, weekly tips, an online forum, and most importantly a Personal Motivator - or mentor - to encourage and guide her.

We currently offer two Kick Start Programs

Kick Start Colorado consists of 30 women in the Denver/Boulder area. This program provides 15 women, who want to become runners but need support, the opportunity to join a free, resource-rich community that prepares them for the Skirt Sports 5k in Superior on June 1, 2014. Additionally, Skirt Sports pairs each racer with their own personal motivator, a seasoned runner, to help guide them through the training.

Kick Start Virtual is a nation-wide program which runs throughout the year. The beginner and the personal motivator apply as a pair, choose a goal 5k race, and Skirt Sports provides the training program, weekly tips, motivation guide, and special gifts along the way. This program provides a seasoned runner, who finds empowerment and fulfillment in running the opportunity to share this passion with someone in their life who has not yet found this gift.

Skirt Sports is currently accepting application for Beginners and Personal Mentors for both the Kick Start Colorado Program and the Kick Start Virtual Program. Click the links below to find out which program is right for you.
