Don’t believe me, ask Joy Tribble, the Founder and creator of The Plus Strut, THE 1st 5K run for plus size women in North America.
The Plus Strut 5K is described as a safe place where women can not only challenge themselves, but be encouraged by other women, while receiving positive energy and love as they conquer their goals and cross the finish line.
Yesterday, Joy announced on social media that the upcoming 5K was sanctioned by the U.S.A TRACK & FIELD (USATF).
“This makes our event the 1st in history, as a plus size running / walking event, to obtain this moniker. You can’t just “say” you’ve been sanctioned, you must be approved!,” shared Tribble. She continued, “Sometimes you have to share proud moments throughout your journey, and this is certainly one for me and The Plus Strut Team.”
The Plus Strut 5K takes place in Chastain Park, in beautiful Atlanta, GA on Saturday May 5th. Interested in making history? Visit ThePlusStrut.com.
