Episode

29. Chix Run the 6ix

In this episode, we chat with Amanda Richardson and Kim Munro Roberts, two of the four founders of Chix Run The 6ix. We discuss their personal running journeys and what inspired them to start a run club with both an awesome name and purpose. Chix Run the 6ix got its start when Amanda suggested to a few friends who enjoyed working out together at the park to go for a run. Eventually one run turned into several and when everyone realized how much fun they were having, they decided to share their experience with other women in the running community.

Our mission was really to give women of any age this approachable, social, supportive and non-competitive community that builds on their confidence and creates a belonging for anyone who wants to be a part of it

Kim Munro Roberts

Fast forward just a few months and Chix Run the 6ix has created a vibrant community for women to build confidence and feel a sense of belonging. These extraordinary women aren’t just creating a space for women in the running community, they’re also giving back through their charity work in support of menstrual health of BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and anyone experiencing a barrier to safe menstrual products.
