WOMEN’S RUNNING RACE SERIES BECOMES A FAMILY AFFAIR
The Women’s Running race series returns for 2017 with a new location and a
new one mile event, offering male participants and children the opportunity to
take part, for the first time, in this year’s racing season.
The popular race series continues to grow from strength to strength, with 2017
seeing the addition of Maidstone as a brand-new race location, and a one mile
event at every site.
Thousands of women of all abilities have taken part in Women’s Running 10k
and 5k running events all over the UK since 2012, and the race series now boasts
twelve locations across England, Scotland, and Wales, with the number of
entrants set to increase again.
For the first time in five years, those cheering from the side-lines, will now have
the chance to take part in the inaugural one mile events.
Race Director, Rob Griffiths of Contest Running Co, said, ‘It’s been great to
witness the success of the Women’s Running race series over the past five years,
and I’m delighted to be adding the mile event into the mix. Every year families
come to support mums, daughters, sisters, wives, and grandmothers, so it’s nice
to be able to invite them to join in with the fun. For a lot of women, running a 5k
or 10k distance marks a milestone in their physical fitness, and for them to share
that sense of achievement with their family too, makes the event even more
The event should prove to be a fun day out for the whole family, with medals
and treats for finishers who cover the mile distance.
Female participants who complete the 5k and 10K race options will also leave
with a commemorative medal, Women’s Running t-shirt, and a Women’s
Running goody bag.
