Description

For the last 30 years, the Women's Distance Festival 5K has been the #1 women's only running or walking event in Rockland County, and has become a premier event in New York State.  Ladies, this is your race! Please join us for the 30th Annual Women's Distance Festival 5K Run/Walk on Saturday July 8th and help us raise money to help the Center for Safety and Change in their mission to eradicate domestic violence and sexual assault against women and children and to provide services to its victims!  

We also would like to ask race participants, in honor of the 30th Anniversary, to make a donation while registering, in the amount of $30.  This is easy to do, and it will help reach a goal: in the future, this race can benefit another organization because WE have eradicated domestic violence and sexual assault!  Prevention is the key, and the more money we can raise, the more we can do to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault!

Sign up for the 5K and compete as an individual or create a Mother/Daughter, Sister/Sister, or Grandmother/Granddaughter team. We also have a team event for groups of 5 or more!

Online Registration is $22.50 for Rockland Road Runner members, and $27.50 for non-members.  Team registrations are available for Mother/Daughter, Sister/Sister, or Grandmother/Granddaughter at $45 provided that at least one team member is a Rockland Road Runner.  If neither is a Rockland Road Runner, then the cost will be $55.  Teams of 5 runners/walkers are available for a discounted cost of $22.50 a team member provided that the team meets a minimum requirement of 5 members.  Running teams will be an awarded category like the others.

Online registration closes at 11:59pm Monday July 3rd.  Registration can be done in person Race Day or at Pre Race Packet Pick-up, but once online registration closes, in person registration is $40 a person no matter what you are registering for.

NEW for this year, the first overall walker will receive $100 in prize money!  We will have spotters on the course, and walkers must follow the walking rules explained by the spotters to be eligible for the prize money.

Packet Pickup Will be from 4pm to 8pm on July 6th at Dick's Sporting Goods at the Palisades Center in West Nyack.
