August 26th is considered Women's Equality Day in the United States of America. It was the anniversary of the passing of Women's Rights to Vote. The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. Workplaces, libraries, organizations, and public facilities now participate with Women’s Equality Day programs, displays, video showings, or other activities.
Participants can participate in the 1 Mile walk or 5K run in person or virtually. This run begins on time so please arrive at least 15 minutes early to receive your race packet.
Participants can run in the 5K for FREE (but will not receive a finishers medal or T-shirt).

For our In person runners, we will all meet up at Hammonds park in Junction City, KS to start at the sound of the gun. We will run the course on open roads. Our virtual runners will be timed on their own. Although the in person race will be timed, we will not block off the route from on coming traffic or allow vendors (in hopes that this will eliminate gatherings due to COVID outbreaks). The in person run will also be limited to 20 - 30 participants. For our virtual runners, immediately after completing a 5K/10K run/walk on Saturday, March 27th, submit your results to us. You’ll get to open up your personal swag-box which will include everything you need to make your run extra special!
