TransRockies Events and Fast and Female are proud to announce Fast and Female as the charity partner of choice for the Skirt Sports Skirt Chaser 5k presented by the Running Room.

Fast and Female is dedicated to the empowerment through sport of young women ages 9 to 19. With an emphasis on cross-country skiing, biathlon and complimentary summer enduro- sports, Fast and Female hosts events led by athletic champions who serve as healthy role models and inspire girls to gain the confidence and leadership they need to reach their full potential in life and sports. In parallel, Fast and Female educates parents, coaches, and sports leaders to ensure they foster the most supportive environment for their young female athletes.

The Skirt Sports Skirt Chaser 5k is a North American running series with a focus on fun.  Featuring a unique format whereby women start first and the men ‘chase’ 3 minutes later.  First across the finish line wins and all runners, and their friends, are treated to a post-race block party complete with D.J., games, food and drink and plenty of swag.  A portion of event proceeds will go to support Fast and Female programs.

The first Canadian Skirt Sports Skirt Chaser 5k is set to take place on May 2nd, 2013 in Calgary, Alberta.  Burnaby, B.C. will play host to a second event on September 14th, 2013.
