I know you have seen me post all over Facebook about the Venus de Miles all- women’s athletic event, but I wanted to share more information about this amazing event that is happening in 9 days. This awesome celebration of sisterhood not only offers the 25 and 62 mile bike courses, this year they are offering a 5K run (or walk) as well. That’s right! If you don’t want to ride, you can still come out and run a fun race and enjoy all the same pampering.
Venus de Miles takes place on July 25th in Lake Forest, IL. Whether, you want to run or ride, this event is for all ability levels and ages. The event benefits Greenhouse Scholars, an education organization that helps college students from low-income communities attend college and strive for great success. That alone, was reason enough for me to sign up.
By registering for this event, not only are you helping these incredible Greenhouse Scholars, but you are giving back to yourself as well. Venus de Miles is all about taking care of the women who register for this event. On the morning of the event, there will be coffee and breakfast for you provided by Whole Foods. During the ride, there will be rest stops with snacks, water and bathrooms. If that’s not enough, the real party happens post ride/run. Join us for a catered lunch, 2 complimentary drinks from North Shore Distillery and Goose Island, spa services, unique crafts from local artisans and a chance to meet the Greenhouse Scholars. How fun does this sound?
It’s not too late to register for the 5K run or either bike event. I even have a $10 off coupon code you can use to save a little money to buy a souvenir that day.
I am honored to have been chosen to be an Ambassador for this great event. I LOVE the enthusiasm and encouragement Venus de Miles promotes and watching women of all fitness abilities come together for a great cause is wonderful. This year is going to be a huge success. I hope you join us on July 25th in Lake Forest and be sure to say HI.
One final thing! Venus de Miles is still looking for volunteers. If you or someone you know wants to help this great event, let me know and I will put you in touch with the organizers.
I hope to see you there!
