Lola Challenge Weekend is an initiative that comes from Run Like a Lola, Inc.
Incorporated in January 2012, Run Like a Lola Inc. is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is to help Puerto Rican women through sport. They promote and empower running, jogging and /or walking as part of helping women lead a healthier life by improving not only their physical and mental health but also by increasing their self-esteem and incorporating these benefits to their everyday life.
On November 2013, Run Like a Lola Inc. completed the “100 Lola’s a’ Divas” project. This project impacted a total of 189 women throughout the island, who had never trained nor raced before in their lives. This project was a complete success, reaching an above the level expectation, since the participating women involved their families, friends, and co-workers, creating a never-before-seen synergy!
For the seventh consecutive year, Run Like a Lola Inc. is proudly organizing the event “Lola Challenge Weekend” that will be held on September 4 through September 6, 2020, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. An innovative and unique event- not only because of what taking the challenge means- but by the place where it will be held, one of the most beautiful historical treasures of our island: El Morro.
