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 virtual race will be held beginning Saturday November 6th, 2021 through Saturday November13th, 2021.
The 2021 WRA 5K is limited to 800 participants, but may increase depending upon registration numbers.

Q: Do I have to be in a certain city/state to do this event?
A: If you are registered for the 24th Annual WRA 5K, you can run/walk the VIRTUAL 5K wherever you are, on your time between Saturday November 6th and Saturday November 13th
Q: Do I have to run or can I walk?
A: You can run, walk, runwalk ... as long as you are purposefully moving and logging miles, it counts.
Q: Do I have to complete the 5K Virtual distance at one time?
A: Yes, since this is a "timed" event, you will need to complete the full 5k during one activity ... not multiple combined activities.
Q: Do I have to put in my miles outside?
A: Preferably you will be able to go outside so you can use our Live GPS tracking app, RaceJoy. See RaceJoy "How To" (click here). but if you need to complete your miles inside (on a treadmill, at the gym, etc.) that will be possible with the alternate reporting option.
Q: How do I record my miles/time?
A: The easiest and best way will be to utilize the RaceJoy app (click here) ... you simply hit start on the app and it will register your time in results when you complete the 5K distance. But, if you are unable to carry your phone; will be in a location with poor cell service; or need to complete your miles inside or on a treadmill, then there will be alternate ways to report your time. You can upload directly to the RunSignUp system. Beginning Saturday, October 6th , Just go to the Results Tab (click here) and choose "Submit Virtual Results". Virtual results will be presented in a format similar to in person results, but for recognition only.
All registrations are final. No transfers or refunds. The Race Director reserves the right to cancel or call the race if dangerous weather or hazardous conditions are present.
Race shirts will be a UNISEX long sleeve cotton tee. You will only be allowed to pick up the size on your registration form. After the event, IF there are remaining shirts you may exchange at that time. Shirts are only guaranteed if registration is completed by November 1, 2021.
