2. Can anyone participate?
Yes! We welcome participants of all ages and abilities.
3. What if I can't complete the 5k distance on October 11, 2017?
That's okay! We trust you'll complete your race when you can and don't track results. We will mail all medals following October 11.
4.I would like to sponsor the event or provide support in some way. How can I get involved?
Wow, thanks! Just fill out the form below and we will get back to you. We are excited to see what you have in mind!
5. Who is Project Soar?
Project Soar is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization, registered in the U.S. and in Morocco. The organization was co-founded in 2012 by American social entrepreneurs to empower Moroccan adolescent girls to continue their education by providing after school academic support, as well as life skills and leadership coaching. Project Soar works to keep girls in school and to prepare them for more productive, fulfilled futures.
Project Soar was part of the CNN film We Will Rise featuring Michelle Obama and Meryl Streep. Watch the promotion video here!

1. I submitted my registration, now what?
Register - check! Now just recruit and then run! We will inform all participants of event news through email. Check your inbox and our Social Media for everything you need to know.
2. Can I register for multiple people?
Right now, we aren't able to process multiple registrations in one donation. Sorry! We're working on it for you and your running crew.
3. Are there any hidden fees?
Nope! Your $25 donation is all you need to pay. If you live outside the US, you will need to pay additional fees for delivery of the medal.
4. How much of each registration goes to Project Soar?
As much as possible! Your registration fee pays for the medal, shipping and materials. These fees per entry will depend on the number of runners so the more we have the less it costs to produce medals and more can go to Project Soar!
5. Is my Registration fee tax deductible?
Yes! Project Soar is a 501(c)3 organization registered in the United States and Morocco. Following your registration, you will receive a donation thank you letter that can be used for tax deduction purposes.
6. Do you offer group discounts?
We would love for your group to participate! Email us with the size of your group and a little bit about your team. This fundraiser is a great way to make your group runs fun while giving back to a great cause!
1. How big is the medal and what does it look like?
The medal will be at least 4" and will have a colorful design. We're in the process of creating the medal and will let you know when it's created!
2. Do you ship internationally?
Yes, but we do need to charge an additional fee to cover the increased cost. Runners outside the United States will be sent an email with instructions on payment. Moroccan residents may have the option for pickup in select Moroccan cities.
3. When will you send the training plan?
Training is based off a 9 week training plan to get all abilities ready to run! We will email all registered participants the official training plan August 1.
4. When will I receive my digital bib?
All registered participants will receive their bib between October 1 - 4 to print and display for race day on October 11, 2017
5. What is the sponsored swag?
We know your cool and think some sponsors will agree! We hope to be able to send you a virtual goodie bag after the race. More details to follow.
