Title 9K Race – coming to the Bay Area!

on July 31, 2012

Almost two weeks without a post, then two posts back to back – what’s up with that??

Well, we, at Moms RUN this Town – San Jose Chapter, have made some friends with the folks at the Title 9K race series!  Yes, it’s exciting….

Title Nine is a women’s athletic clothing line.  They have great outfits that all come with a one (1) year return policy (I know, how awesome is that!!).  In the Bay Area, they have stores in Los Gatos and Palo Alto (also Berkley, Walnut Creek and Mill Valley).  I haven’t visited their stores yet, but will definitely be making a trip soon!  Love their catalog, though!

The Title 9K race series is a women’s only race that celebrates the landmark legislation, Title IX, that gave women equal rights and access to “any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance”.  That meant that public education institutions could not exclude women from “participation in, or be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” not only sports but also, any other higher education activities receiving federal funding.

The Title 9K race will be held on September 16, 2012 at the Quarry Lakes in Fremont, just outside of San Jose.  The race itself is for women only – they have a special stroller division and a “Rag-a-muffin” race for kids. Husbands/Dads/Uncles/boy-friends (you get the picture!) can come and cheer us on or volunteer at the race – they just can’t run it.  MRTT will have a booth there, so if you are in the area and would like to check us out, please do!  But more importantly, sign up for this race and celebrate the power of women and the 40th anniversary of this landmark legislation!

We’ll post updates as we get closer to race day!  In the meantime, look out for our race review of the 1st Annual MRTT Hot Mama Virtual Half Marathon…
