Run/Walk at Freedom Park
It's usually kind of hot, but I love running and walking outside. Please bring some water and maybe a towel to wipe the sweat. A hat helps protect your face from the heat. Also, a thin long sleeve helps a little bit. It protects your skin from the sun. I usually exercise without a long sleeve shirt, but just know you'll be a few shades darker. Lol.


Myers Park, Dilworth, Freedom Park, · Charlotte, NC

What we're about

African-American women with an unhealthy BMI who live in Uptown/South End Charlotte interested in learning to run to achieve a healthy weight and health goals. Those looking for the support of a community. Also, those interested in the Black Girls Run movement. The group will run/jog at the Dowd YMCA (membership is required for YMCA runs) and in Uptown/South End (when temperatures permit). Women over 35 are welcome and encouraged to join. Ultimately, this group is intended to be large so that there is always, at least, 3 women running together on any given day (at any given time.) If you are interested in being a co-organizer just say so!
