Gildan Esprit de She is one of the nation's premier athletic-event series for women. Throughout the country, organizers put together timed races and other activities for experienced runners to first-timers looking to accomplish an athletic goal. For the former, there are duathlons and triathlons; for the latter, 5Ks, 10Ks, and yoga. After many of these events, especially the 5K/10K races, the female participants attend a fitness-inspired "happy hour" for networking, celebrating, and trying out samples provided by event partners. Each Gildan Esprit de She event supports the local council of the nonprofit Girls on the Run, whose programming fosters confidence and strength in girls.
