About Women Run Arkansas
Women Run Arkansas Running Club is an RRCA organization which was formed in 2000 in response to the need for a statewide women’s running and walking club.
The mission of the WRA is to address the special needs of women’s fitness, while promoting health and fitness through running and walking.
WRA is the organizing force behind FREE women’s 5K Training Clinics which are held for 10 weeks each spring across the state. The first clinic was held in Conway, Arkansas in 1997. Since then, clinics have been held throughout Central Arkansas and the state. At the end of each clinic, WRA sponsors the WRA 5K in Conway to celebrate the successful completion of the clinics. The 5K is open to all ladies regardless of whether or not you participated in the clinics. This 5K race is open to women only. The race will be held May 9, 2020.

After the governor’s press conference Sunday announcing statewide school closures WRA is updating our guidance on clinic meetings. All clinics will follow the no public school, no in person clinic meetings. We want to do our part to help stop the spread of this virus.
Follow your local clinic on social media and check your email to keep up-to-date on the latest clinic information, to get your intervals for the week, and other information from your director. Feel free to share pictures of your training on your local Facebook page or even the state Facebook page. Training on your own is not always easy and we want to encourage each other during the time we use the virtual option.
Our graduation event is eight weeks away and as you know the precautions being taken in light of the Covid 19 have clinics operating in a virtual manner. Please be encouraged and don’t give up on your training! WRA, it’s board, directors and leaders are here to see you successfully across that finish line in May! We expect things to be back to normal by April, but in the event things don’t work that way WE WILL STILL HAVE A 5K. The WRA board has agreed to move all registrations to virtual if the worst-case scenario happens and we cannot host a public event on May 9th. Keep on training and keep each other encouraged!
Communication will be key in the following weeks, follow us on Facebook Women Run Arkansas Running Club and check out our website womenrunrkansas.net for the latest information.
