Looking for a team to join?
If you search #WomenRunTheVote on Instagram or Twitter, you will see info about teams with open spots. If you have more questions about which teams are looking for runners, please email in to firstname.lastname@example.org!
What is included in registration?
Registration includes a virtual race experience where teams of 20 will cover the 907-mile journey, learn about Indigenous Sovereignty and Environmental Justice while raising money for The Duwamish Tribe of Seattle, National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, and Runners for Public Lands. The first 2900 people who purchase a race package will also receive an exclusive Women Run the Vote bandana.
How much of my registration cost will be contributed to these organization?
After covering the costs of hosting the relay (including paying content creators) every dollar from registration will flow directly to the three recipient organizations. We urge you to learn more about our charities and donate directly to their powerful organizations. If you are looking for a 501c3 tax receipt and corporate matching form for your donation, please donate directly on their website.
How do I claim my race swag - bandana?
Women Run the Vote bandanas will ship out starting the second week of September.
I see this is a team event, can I just run by myself?
Since the relay covers 907 miles in 7 days, it will require a team effort. If you do not have a team to run with, when you register you will be able to choose a team with vacancies to join!
What happens if my team doesn't "finish" the relay (doesn't cover all 907 miles during the allotted time)?
No adverse consequences! You'll receive emails along the route triggered by mileposts you pass, so if you don't finish the route you won't receive those emails or the "you finished!" email. But there will be no penalty - this is a relay to increase knowledge and raise money for our wonderful organizations.
How do I share Women Run the Vote on social media?
After registration and during the relay, you will receive emails with shareable images and information. Feel free to post those on social media using the hashtag #WomenRunTheVote
