Run She Is Beautiful – Baby Mama Division 5k & 5 mile – Santa Barbara

We arrived. We ran (with Speed). We were inspired once again.

This was the third consecutive year that we’ve sponsored the Baby Mama Division of the inspiring She is Beautiful run in Santa Barbara (we also sponsor the Santa Cruz run!)  Being there, it’s impossible to not be inspired, encouraged and celebrated.  The two sisters, Melissa McConville (race founder & director) and Sara Tanza (Assistant Race Director & Chief of Fun) wouldn’t have it any other way.  They exude happiness and kindness + see the good in everyone.  Their MORE LOVE attitude is contagious.

With motivational words posted all through the course and groups of women from all walks of life walking, running, skipping or pushing a stroller, the race goes by in a blink.  Set right on the Santa Barbara coastline, the beautiful scenery is the icing on the cake.

Bumbleride’s mission is to make gear for you to get out and do what you love while doing our best to preserve the planet we all share.  This run helps us see our mission in action. This year, not only did we see tons of parents out running in the fresh air with their little ones in a stroller, we were so thrilled to see RSIB take the waste element to a whole new level with both compost and recycling options next to trash bins.  The race directors regularly attend conferences to help them to reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste altogether in these large scale events.  So cool.

Each year, proudly gift a Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller to each of the winners of the two distances, 5k and 5 miler.  These strong, dedicated mamas deserve it!  Congratulations to the 5k winner, Molly Thomson from Santa Barbara, CA and the 5 mile winner, Laura Ewing from Ventura, CA.

Join us next year!

She.is.beautiful’s Mission Statement

Empowering women and girls through movement and community in a supportive environment where they are able to take the lessons learned on the road and trail into the rest of their lives.  We believe that beauty is more of a feeling than a physical attribute. We believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful, strong, smart, and capable in their own unique way. We believe so strongly in the power of sweat and community. We think there is something powerful that happens when a women/girl learns how strong she really is and how this can impact the rest of her life.

 

Gear Day 2018 – Snuggle Bugz Canada – Coquitlam, BC

Save the Date! Snuggle Bugz Coquitlam’s Gear Day is taking place on Saturday September 15th 2018 from 10am-4pm!  

Join us at Snuggle Bugz Coquitlam – 1300 Woolridge St., Coquitlam

Stroller Day and Car Seat Day has easily become Snuggle Bug’z most popular event in Ontario, so we’ve extended this event to our BC friends. It is a fantastic one-day only Gear extravaganza – a day completely dedicated to all things strollers and car seats with great deals to boot!

Here are some of the highlights of this one-day event:

  • Amazing offers from our most popular stroller and car seat brands – available only at the event!
  • Meet & greet with brand representatives on-hand to compare your favourites and answer all of your questions.
  • Test drive your favourite stroller in real-life situations – grass, sidewalk, bumps and hills!
  • Car seat brand experts on site to answer all questions on safety and compatibility.
  • Buy any stroller or car seat and you will receive a $25 Snuggle Bugz gift card!
  • Free Gift Bag when you register at the event (Hurry, it is while supplies last!)

We have put together some tips on how to get through the event with the absolute most fun:

Rain Rain, Go Away!
Not going to lie, we obviously would rather it be sunny and warm, but in the event that we cannot control the weather Gods, this event will happen should it rain. We have tents and umbrellas and an indoor area that will be our saving grace should it downpour. Fingers, toes, even eyes crossed the clouds hold back until 4:02pm. Dress according to the weather!

Line Ups
Avoiding the lineup is always a big question people ask! If you do not like lines than we don’t suggest coming first thing in the morning. This is usually where the morning early bird line forms. However, come as a team, especially if you have a young child with you. One person stands in line, while the other browses around, takes a break, or picks up a delicious treat. If you don’t need to take your stroller home with you that day, it is usually best not to stand in line and skip some of the hustle and bustle! Usually by 2pm (nap time) things slow down till around 3pm. Then from 3-4pm there will be another last minute rush again!

Stock Availability
Don’t panic if the gear you want is not available to take home the day of the event. While we do our best to have as much gear available as possible, we will run out of car seats and strollers at some point during the day. When this happens, you will be able to special order the gear you have chosen and pick up or ship to you at a later date – estimated time of arrival of your special order will be determined at time of purchase.

We can’t wait for September 15th and hope to see all your smiling faces too! If you have any other questions you need answered before our first ever Gear Day, be sure to leave us comment a below or chat with us on Facebook.
