This is a run series designed for all women of different shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. F.A.T Girls run is a running group that is part of the Women’s Institute of Self Development and Efficacy, also known as WISE. We want to encourage everyone, especially women, that they can have a healthy lifestyle and be runners regardless of their fears, misconceptions, and doubts. Anyone can be a runner if they set their mind to it.

This run has been a dream of our Founder, Jennifer Sanchez, who wanted a healthier lifestyle and mind. As a result, she trained for and ran the Chicago Bank Of America Marathon back in 2018. She didn’t allow her weight on the scale stop her from running her first marathon. Thus, we want to change the perspective around the word fat and transform this hurtful and belittling word into a word of empowerment.

The F.A.T. acronym represents a woman who is fearless, authentic, and tenacious. We want all women who enroll in this virtual run to see themselves as F.A.T. We will also provide all our registrant’s support through a women’s running group on Facebook and via email to increase their chances of success.

You will have 48 hours after the opening ceremony to submit your results.

Make sure you also join our FB group to keep up to date with the entire community

We are also raising funds to provide partial scholarships for women who want to enroll in our virtual WISE 12-week leadership and coaching program. Please consider making a small donation so that we can help continue empower women and give them the tools and techniques needed to have a more successful and happier life both at work and at home.

Frequently asked questions

How do I record my activity?
To record your activity, you will need to download an activity tracking app that is able to track your distance and time. Popular apps include Strava, Nike Run Club, MapMyRun, and RunKeeper, and are available in the app store for free on your phone. For more details on our favourite tracking apps check out our blog post.
Are there time cutoffs for Virtual Events?
Virtual Events are fantastic in that they can be completed at any pace and location. The only restriction on how long you take is the event submission window, which is generally 48 hours, giving you lots of time to complete your event.
Can I go further than the race distance?
Yes, you can complete a distance further than what the event requires. All you need to do is input distance travelled and time, and we will adjust it down to the time it took to complete the event distance.
Can I take a break during my activity or do I have to do it without stopping?
In order to make the virtual experience as close to a physical event as possible, please submit your total elapsed time that it took to complete your chosen distance rather than total moving time. This will take into account any breaks or stops taken during completion, and mimic the experience of a physical event.
If offered, when will the post-race goodies be mailed?
Any race goodies or merchandise will be posted by the Event Organiser as soon as possible after the event. Please contact the Event Organiser if you have further enquiries about race swag.
Can I take part at any time of day?
You will find the event start time on the event page. Once the event starts, you can complete the event any time within the submission window. Make sure to upload your result and picture within the submission window to verify your results!
