It’s finally time to throw on your sweet race tee, lace up your shoes, and head on out for your 5K or 10K Walk or Run! Make sure you take plenty of pics, because what’s a race without a #selfie to prove you were there? Share them with us on our Facebook page and on Instagram using the hashtag #shrinkingjeans -we’ll be re-sharing our favorites throughout the week!
After your race, do your victory dance and proudly show-off your finisher’s medal, then meet us back here to log your results! Official results will be posted on shrinkingjeans.net the following week!
We are so excited to announce the Together We Race 5K/10K/Mile Run and Walk to be held on Sunday, April 12th, 2015. Whether you are a runner, jogger, or a walker -this race is for you! The Sisterhood is known for their awesome Run the ‘Hood virtual races, and this 5K/10K Run and Walk event will be no different! We do a lot of things together at the Sisterhood. We lose weight together, we do endless squats together, we learn to eat healthier together, and we even run together. It’s really an awesome thing, all this together-ness we have, even though we all live in different parts of the country and world.
To recognize this special bond we have, our spring Run The ‘Hood race theme is TOGETHER WE RACE, and we’re going to have lots of cool things like custom race shirts, medals, and maybe even friendship bracelets!
We’ll all race across this great big earth, on the same day, TOGETHER.
Race registration opens RIGHT NOW and will remain open until March 18, 2015. Why do we close registration so far ahead of time? Well, that’s because we have some kick-ass race tees and medals that we need to print and ship to you ahead of time, so that you can show them off come race day!
What: Together We Race 5K/10K/Mile Run & Walk: A Run the ‘Hood Virtual Race

The Charity: With every race that we host, we donate a portion of our proceeds to charity. This spring, we are choosing Together We Rise to receive those funds! As a foster mom, this cause is very near and dear to my heart! Every day, 1,200 children enter the foster care system in America. Together We Rise is a non-profit organization that aims to change their lives -for the better! They provide suitcases to children who often have nothing but a trash bag to hold their few belongings. They provide bikes to foster youth across the country, and give foster children opportunities they may never have otherwise -taking kids to Disneyland, helping them furnish their college dorm rooms, taking them shopping for new clothes- things you and I both probably take for granted.

When will I get my race tee? Race tees will mailed out in time for you to wear on race day! We are hoping to do the same with the finisher’s medals! **international participants tees/medals/swag cannot be guaranteed to arrive before race day. Sorry.
What will they look like? The shirts will be eerily amazing! A super soft tri-blend tee with ghostly graphics! Women -SIZE UP! They tend to run small! Men’s are true to size! Youth and 3XL shirts will be 100% cotton and run true to size also.
When does registration end? Registration will end on Wednesday, March 18th, 2015. Why so much earlier than race day? See below!
Can I register late? Nope. Sorry. Once registration is closed, it’s closed. We need to get the t-shirt order into the printers so that everyone can get their tees in time for race day!
What about race results? After you finish your race, we will have a form to fill out with your race distance and time! Results will be separated into age brackets and published the following week!
Age brackets: Men’s and Women’s will be separate, ages as follows:
60 and over:
12 and under
I live for race bling, please tell me I will get a medal! Most definitely! The custom medals are going to be extra special this time around!
