On Thursday, Aug. 1 Life Time Athleta Esprit de She, the nation’s premier athletic event series designed exclusively for women, will host a 5K at Baylands Nature Preserve in Palo Alto.
Athleta Esprit de She features a signature post-race rendezvous complete with champagne bubbly bar, tasty tapas and community market showcasing fresh produce, local artisans, creative projects and more. To complement the fun race experience, participants will receive a custom designed, tri-blend lifestyle tank as well as a stylishly functional race bag to use while shopping the post-race night market!
Athleta Esprit de She has also partnered with Girls on the Run. Race participants have the opportunity to make a donation to Girls on the Run in one of three ways: 1) donate now, 2) donate as part of the registration process, or 3) become a “SoleMate” for your local council.
