Women's Walk Run Memphis

Girls Run the 901 has partnered with Women Walk Run Memphis to raise awareness about this great event. Open to all women and all levels, the event is the perfect way to get started in running, improve upon your pace and meet some incredible new runners. We will be there supporting, volunteering and coaching this great program!

This 10-week training program (2010 RRCA Beginning Runner's Program Winner) has been in Memphis for 22 years and is for walkers, beginning, intermediate and advanced Runners. At the end of the program each trainee participates in the 'Graduation' 5K. This is a great source of accountability and encouragement. For the registration fee of only $30 (until July 1st) you recieved pace orientated training for 6 weeks, a tshirt, and a graduation 5k. What a deal! 

From talking to their staff, they are all about encouraging and supporting the runner. This is not a place for runners boast about the 100 miles you ran this week, it is about encouraging you in your fitness journey.

Women's Walk Run Memphis will kick off with our annual EXPO on Monday,
July 1, 2013 5-7pm at the AgriCenter International. Here you will have a chance to register (if you haven't already), meet the coaches and have any of your questions answered, purchase technical wear, learn from local running stores about shoes and proper running apparel and visit vendors and sponsors booths. 

Be sure to read the tips for beginning runners here as well as updates on program information

We are very excited about this amazing resource right here in the 901!

We will see you there!
