The SkirtChaser Race Series is an experience unlike any race you've run and any block party you've attended. Not only is it a brand new running race format, giving women a head-start on the men in a fun atmosphere, the entire event is innovative, from packet-pickup to the Block Party and all of its sponsors. From walkers to pro-runners, the SkirtChaser Race Series invites you to experience the most fun you've ever had while working out!
Packet Pickup will be held at SkirtSports retailers around each city, each of whom are proud supports of the SkirtChaser Race Series. Sizes, styles, and colors of each product will be onsite at packet pickup, so come early and get "Skirt-fitted!" in case you were unsure of your size when you registered. No promises, though! We sell out fast!
The actual race will be a 5k course, with the finish line ending at the Block Party. The women will start first, in a "Catch Me" wave, and the men will start three minutes later, in the "SkirtChaser" wave. First athlete to cross the finish line, male or female, will win $500!
Each Block Party will feature live entertainment and a happy hour atmosphere of food and drinks. Food will be your local favorite appetizers, and drinks will be brought to you by Red Bull and Oskar Blues Brewery. At the band's break, a DriLex fashion show, "all the way down to the skivvies," will feature SkirtSports and SkirtChaser products, emceed by the one and only, Nicole DeBoom. Awards will follow, where not only will the first, second, and third place winners receive their mullah, but a special "Skivvies Awards" presentation will accompany. Be careful on that course! You may be the next "most likely to make out at the water station" winner!!
Come for the crazy awards, or the scandalous fashion show, or the free beer and music, or the chance to leave your kids at home with the babysitter on a party night, or imagine that, the actual race! But mostly, come help SkirtSports and all of its sponsors celebrate a fun-filled life of fitness, where you'll never stop smiling and you may just meet your future spouse!
Most people don't know that when Nicole DeBoom, founder and CEO of SkirtSports, had the revolutionary idea for the first-ever running skirt, she also dreamt of creating a race series with the same message. Look good, feel good, perform better. Work hard and play hard. But, as SkirtChaser #1, Tim DeBoom looked on, Nicole decided she wanted to INCLUDE the men in her life in an edgy and fun event. Thus, three years after the company's birth, the SkirtChaser Race Series was born. Now, SkirtChaser has gone from nickname to tagline to race series to product line.
