Upcoming Women-Centric Events

Girls on the Run 5k

Come celebrate girl power at the New Balance Girls on the Run 5K. This race will be held at the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park, Sunday, Apr. 25, 2010 at 8am. It's a family-friendly run/walk where everyone is welcome. Whether you are one of the enthusiastic girls in our after-school program or a community member who wants to get out and exercise, come join us to support a great cause. All proceeds benefit Girls on the Run of Austin.

Skeese Greets Women's Tri
The 4th installation of the Skeese Greets Women's Tri happens on May 16th at the Texas Ski Ranch in New Braunfels, TX. The 300 m swim, 11 mile bike and 2 mile run is great for beginners or for advanced triathletes looking for an early season triathlon. This year each participant receives a tech tee, food & fun filled after party, plus other great surprises. Registration is currently open, but the event will sell out again this year.

Tough Cookie Women's Duathlon
If you've never participated in a multi-sport event, then why not try it out at a run-bike-run that's for women only? The Tough Cookies Duathlon is a beginner friendly 2k run, 10 mile bike, then 2k run which takes place on March 7th in Copperas Cove. This fun event, which also features a kids race, is a great way to get ready for all the upcoming triathlons.
