Women Run Arkansas


The twenty-second annual women’s running/walking training clinics are set to begin March 3, 2019.

Have you always wanted to walk, start running, or if you are already running-run faster and longer? Join our clinic and we can help you by training you during this 10 week clinic and you will be able to complete the graduation event, which is a 5K (3.1 miles) at the end of the clinic, May 11.

The Women Run Arkansas Running/Walking Club is hosting the annual “Women Can Run” running and walking clinics, and we will be joining them by having a clinic here in Fort Smith, AR. Our clinic will begin at 6 p.m. on Monday and Thursday evenings and will meet at 7308 Ellis, Fort Smith, AR in the Chaffee Crossing District.

The 10-week training clinics are for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced runners and walkers and will culminate with a 5K run/walk graduation event on May 11 in Conway. By the end of the training clinic each participant will be able to run, run/walk or walk at 5K (3.1 miles). Each clinic meets twice a week.

We do not charge for the clinic training; however, there is a $25 fee for the 5K graduation event, which is the goal of the clinic participants. The $25 covers your entry for the 5K, which will also include a dri fit shirt, medal and other goodies. The $25 is used to help cover the expense of the clinics and the 5K event, plus a portion of every entry is donated to a charitable organization of the clubs choice. All WRA board members, clinic directors and leaders volunteer their time for the 10 week training period.

Come on and join in the fun with other ladies learning to walk and run. You will make new friends and possibly meet someone to walk and run with on a continuous basis, even after the training period and 5K. This is your opportunity to do something for yourself and start a lifestyle that will benefit you the rest of your life.

You can pre-register for the clinic online at the Women Run Arkansas website www.womenrunarkansas.net or at the first night of your clinic session.

You can also contact Leslie Bagby or Lorrie Runion at [email protected] for additional information.

The Women Run Arkansas Running/Walking Club is a RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) and is dedicated to promoting healthy living among women through running and walking activities. Additional information is available on our website www.womenrunarkansas.net
