Park City’s Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold

On February 7, 2012, in Running, by Meghan

(Update, 11 February, 2012: The Park City Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold took place this morning, and it was a success! Fifteen folks from Park City and the Salt Lake City area ventured onto Park City’s snowy, icy trails to run in honor of Sherry. It was a great morning, and I’m grateful to all of you who joined us! I’ve posted a picture of our group at the bottom of this blog post.)

About a month ago, Sidney, Montana runner Sherry Arnold was abducted and killed during her morning run.

At the same time this tragedy occurred, thousands of other women around the world were engaging in their own morning runs. That we, as women, are subjected to violent crimes while engaging in the sports we love is an intolerable part of our society. We should have the right to safely engage in our sport no matter who we are, where we are, or when we run. We deserve safe streets and trails, and we deserve communities who support us.

This Saturday morning, February 11th, a Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold will take place. Around the world, women (And men, too!) will gather to run for Sherry, all women who’ve been victimized while running, and the right to safely play.

Park City, Utah is participating! Please consider joining us at 9am on Saturday morning at ZB Sports in Newpark. Below you’ll find the details of Park City’s Virtual Run for Sherry Arnold via a JPG image or a downloadable PDF. Click, print, repost, link away, and spread the word.

But, if you’re going to do anything, come run with us!
