shoozWe’re so proud of this gosh darn community, and we know that you love it as much as we do! Thanks to you, 2015 has been our best year yet!  To celebrate, we’re bringing back Free Shoes!

We want to help you be the best you can be, and we believe the best way to do that is runners sharing our stories with one another.  So now it’s your turn!

But I’m not fast/my race was short/I didn’t win/I didn’t finish/I’m a dude

We want you to enter anyway!  Salty Running was built by women who love running fast at all fitness levels, so that means this contest is open to YOU, no matter what the distance, no matter what the speed. We encourage everyone to enter, men and women alike, no matter what kind of race you had:  from breaking tape to bonking hard, from just-as-planned to totally unexpected, from epic PR to epic DNF.  From marathon to 100m to your fifth ultra or your first 5k, roads or trails, bring us those race reports! If you ran the race in 2015, send it in!
