Woman’s Hospital and Gulf Coast Event Group proudly announce the Gulf South’s first major running event exclusively for women. The 3rd Annual Woman’s Half Marathon, 10K Road Race, 5K Fun Run and Wellness Boutique will be held November 16, 2014.
“Woman’s has focused on improving the health of women in our community for more than four decades, so we are excited to host a signature event that not only reinforces our mission, but also promotes a continuing healthy lifestyle,” said Teri Fontenot, Woman’s President and CEO.
“This event is a celebration of women’s health,” said Adam Guess, Managing Partner of Gulf Coast Event Group. “It is not only the first major endurance event in this area designed just for women, but it also provides a great platform for fundraising for several worthy causes.”
The Woman’s Half Marathon, 10K and 5K offers runners the unique option to choose their running distance, even during the event. If training didn’t quite prepare a runner to tackle the half – or if she’s just ready to start the post-race party – she can simply turn north on the 10K course.
“This option will provide runners with an unprecedented level of flexibility to choose the distance that is right for them, even once the race has started,” explains Guess.
