Recap: Run She Is Beautiful Santa Barbara 2019

September 24, 2019

Another remarkable She is Beautiful race in Santa Barbara, CA is in the books! Bumbleride has now sponsored eight consecutive She is Beautiful races in both Santa Cruz, CA and Santa Barbara, CA and they just keep getting better. Beautiful clear skies, warm coastal weather and a sold out race give this event a foundation for fun but the added benefits of great like-minded sponsors, inspirational speakers and motivational quotes along the route are the icing on the cake. Race Founder Melissa and her sister Sara, Chief of Fun, bring so much joy, kindness and empowerment to this race. They are truly naturals at this and we are honored to continue sponsoring the Baby Mama Division.

Congratulations to Bumbleride Baby Mama Division winners: 10K – Cheri Glimp of Solvang and 5K – Kari Moran of our hometown of San Diego (@grrrlrunner)!

The winners of the 5k and 10k races in the Bumbleride Baby Mama Division walk away with a brand new Bumbleride Speed running stroller.  We love seeing all of the mamas out there with their strollers and their little passengers, showing their kids that movement and connection are key to a happy and healthy life.

Come out and join us in 2020!

Congratulations to Bumbleride Baby Mama Division winners Liza Reichert (10K) and Cristina Schwartz (5K)!! Enjoy your new Bumbleride Speed jogging strollers!

She Is Beautiful is more than an event series, it’s a community. SIB empowers 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. You can feel this throughout the race with inspirational messaging around every turn and through their race warm-up and event staff. Learn more about She Is Beautiful.

Cristina already owns Speed and has generously donated her winning Speed stroller to Jenny’s Light Race in Los Gatos, CA on May 19th featuring a 10k, 5k and 1k Kid’s Fun Run, http://supportingmamas.org/jennys-light-run/ ! We’ve sponsored their 5k so stroller stroller division female winners will receive a new Speed jogging stroller thanks to Cristina’s support.

Join us for She Is Beautiful’s next race in Santa Barbara on September 14th! Learn more about Santa Barbara.

The morning started out with a little rain and cleared for the start. The Santa Cruz race couldn’t be in a more picturesque location.
