Sole Sisters is a womens walking / running group that began in 2008 when a few friends thought it would be fun to start an informal 4 month training in preparation to complete the Helvatia half marathon. We launched it as a small group at our church and a few dozen women showed up! We bonded as we hit the roads and completed our 13.1 goal! Then we thought—why the heck are we getting up at 4 am to drive far and pay big bucks for a race ---why not put on our own event on the very roads we trained on?! Queen of the High Road was born, and the rest is her-story!
Queen of the High Road (or the QUEEN /QHR as it has come to be known as) is a 13.1 OR 10K (6.2 miles) that takes place annually in MAY on the Saturday before memorial day weekend in Wilsonville. It is a low cost but HIGH fun , personalized experience unlike any other event. Proceeds benefit various charities---in the past those have included : YOUNG LIFE, Africa New Life and the MS foundation. We ask that if you participate in our 4 months of training as a sole sister that you please register for our event! we complete the goal together and celebrate! The QUEEN is open to any female—you do NOT have to train with sole sisters to do the QUEEN, but we keep it small (500) for that small town feel
Sole sisters Wilsonville was the inaugural training group soon followed by groups in Sherwood and Tigard (2013), West Linn (2014), Oregon City and Beaverton (2015) and Canby and Newberg (2016). We have grown with a database of close to 1000 women who simply want to get out there on Saturday mornings, and know that a few (hundred!) friends will be there to walk or run alongside them! we do not go looking to start groups in new towns---but we welcome the idea as leaders rise up to take on this active ministry!
If you feel called to be a leader, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are a free non-denominational ministry to women of all WALKS (or runs!) of life. We have Sole Sisters from age 12-76 , with every age, stage and pace represented. Our coaches volunteer their time for 4 months (and beyond) to spread the word, invite, include, motivate , encourage and love on women in their towns. We are thrilled to continue to grow and Sole Sisters knows no bounds other than fun, commitment, friendship, fitness and staying on the HIGH ROAD!
