Women Run Arkansas Running club is an RRCA organization which was formed in 2000 in response to the need for a statewide women's running and walking club.

The mission of the WRA is to address the special needs of women's fitness, while promoting health and fitness through running and walking.

WRA is the organizing force behind FREE women's run/walk clinics which are held for 10 weeks each spring across the state. The first clinic was held in Conway, Arkansas in 1997. Since then, clinics have been held throughout Central Arkansas and the state. At the end of each clinic, WRA sponsors the Women Can Run/Walk 5K in Conway to celebrate the successful completion of the clinics.  The 5k is open to all ladies regardless of whether or not you participated in the clinics. This 5k race is open to women only.  The 2017 race will be held May 13, 2017.

Registrations are non-transferable and non-refundable. Race Director reserves the right to call the race for inclement weather or other imminent issues.
