Winter Solstice Run
December 19, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The 2015 Winter Solstice Run is a 40 mile ultra-run on December 19th, raising awareness and funds to support On The Ground’s Project Congo. Project Congo concentrates on gender equality and raising awareness about the key issues faced by coffee farming families in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Initiatives will promote peace and gender equality while highlighting inspirational people and their stories. The work aims to break the chains of poverty and conflict while supporting women empowerment groups in coffee communities of the region.
The Run offers four options:
40 miles – The whole shebang.
20 miles – Half-Solstice option: Run the last 20 miles!
Relay – You and three others each run a 10 mile leg!
The First 10 – Run the last 10 miles!
Following the run, join fellow participants in a post-run celebration!
