On Thursday, September 19, Life Time Athleta Esprit de She, the nation’s premiere athletic event series designed exclusively for women by Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life CompanySM, will return to Minnesota with a 5K and 10K. The Athleta Esprit de She Maple Grove follows the success of Athleta Esprit de She 50th & France and Athleta Esprit de She Lakeville Duathlon which drew more than 1,700 women participants.
To gear up for the event, Athleta Esprit de She will host a free Ladies’ Night Concert on Sept. 10 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes fountain featuring a performance by Keri Noble.
Athleta Esprit de She has also partnered with Girls on the Run as the series national charity partner. Girls on the Run is an organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. 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 the local council, Girls on the Run Twin Cities. On Sept. 19, Girls on the Run will celebrate Spirit Day to highlight the beautiful, unique and empowered spirit that Girls on the Run brings out in all of us.
