We Are Going Virtual

With heavy hearts the WRA board has made the decision to switch our graduation 5K to a virtual event. Not the outcome we were hoping for, but with social distancing extended until April 30th a public event won’t be possible and we want to do everything we can to protect and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Even if social distancing is lifted on April 30th, there is simply no way we would be able to complete plans for a quality event in that short amount of time. We are sad about this but feel this is the best decision we can make given the uncertainty we are facing.

What does this mean?

You can complete the 5k ANYWHERE, road, trail, track, treadmill, as long as you complete 3.1 miles and complete your miles by MAY 31, 2020. You will still get a medal and a we will send or deliver them. If you want a shirt you have to register by APRIL 30, 2020. Since the race is not officially timed we will not award prizes, so just have fun. We still want to celebrate with you so please post pictures using the hashtag #WRA2020 #VirtuallyUnstoppable.

If you have any questions contact our race director, wraracedirector@gamil.com

 

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply compete the distance on your own, and you still get a medal. 

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs and be able to fulfill our obligation to the Children's Tumor Foundation. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at next years event.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Description

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.

Women Run Arkansas is the organizing force behind the FREE WRA 5K training 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. Concluding clinic training, Women Run Arkansas sponsors the graduation WRA 5K in Conway to celebrate.  The 5k is open to all ladies regardless of whether or not you participated in the training clinics. This 5k race is open to women only.  The race will be held May 9, 2020.

The 2020 WRA 5K is limited to 1600 participants.

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

Clinic Participants must indicate as such on the race registration.  Those not participating in clinic training must register in the open division.  Clinic directors/leaders must register as a leader.  Violations may result in disqualification.  A second offense will result in a 3-year suspension from the race.  A third offense will result in a lifetime ban from the race.
