Enter to win below. This fall, Women’s Health magazine will once again host its signature RUN10 FEED10 event with a mission! Kicking off the event series in New York City on September 20, thousands of participants will run down the West Side Highway for the timed 10K race. Women’s Health and FEED, the organization founded by philanthropist and social entrepreneur Lauren Bush Lauren, partner for this race series to motivate consumers nationwide to help fight domestic hunger. The concept is simple: run a 10k, feed 10 people. Since starting this initiative they have raised 3.75 million meals and have the hopes of breaking 5 million in 2015. “New York City had only shut down the West Side Highway just one other time before RUN10 FEED10 was created,” Jen Ator, the Fitness Director of Women’s Health tells me on a bright sunny morning just a few weeks before the big race. “They said yes to Women’s Health because they were so excited to see a race that would benefit New York since 10 meals are donated to local food banks per runner.” “The reason behind the race is simple,” she explains. “There are a lot of races out there, other magazines and outlets have their own runs and we wanted to find something unique and specific to us. We noticed that 10ks were getting increasingly popular and we partnered with FEED because we realized that women were trying to make their fitness philanthropic, helping other people while promoting their health.” Not only have 10ks become more popular in recent years, but Jen points out, “6.2 miles is an attainable distance and you feel proud accomplishing it. We have a wide span of readers. Everyone from people who don’t consider themselves runners to people who do marathons. This distance is great for serious athletes to track their run times and for new runners it’s an achievable distance. Seasoned or not — everyone will feel proud they accomplished it.” In celebration of the race we’re giving one lucky reader an amazing Fit Kit stocked with over 25 awesome fitness, wellness and beauty items courtesy of Women’s Health and FEED. Check out Jen’s top two favorite items from the Fit Kit, find info on everything you need to know about the race and enter to win below. Jen’s Faves Batiste Dry Shampoo: Training for a race can mean a busy schedule of workouts each week. To prevent over-drying my hair, I try not to shampoo my hair after every workout. Dry shampoo is my saving grace when I need to get ready quickly after shorter training sessions or freshen up on my off days. Go Organic Apple Hard Candies: I love carrying these little hard candies in my work bag and purse; perfect for satisfying those little sweet cravings (they have a variety of flavors, too—cherry, pomegranate, and ginger are some of my other favorites). Sometimes if my motivation is waning before a p.m. workout, I’ll pop one of these for a quick little mental boost of energy.
