The Running Club

About The Club

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.

WRA keeps women moving…

We understand that women work hard to balance their many responsibilities. After all, we’re women, too! We want to help our members make fitness a priority while maintaining a healthy balance in their lives. Having fun and forming lasting friendships is an important aspect of our group.

WRA encourages its members

Our diverse membership includes elite runners, teens, mothers, as well as more mature women. In other words, all women fit into WRA!

Membership Benefits

Free Clinics across Arkansas

The clinics are designed to meet the needs of all ability levels. From beginning walkers and runners, to intermediate and advanced runners with specific training goals, No one is left out!

Motivation & Networking

WRA members stay motivated after the race through a runner/walker network where women in cities across Arkansas are connected with other women runners/walkers in their area.

Grand Prix Racing

The Arkansas RRCA Grand Prix is a series of 20 races affiliated with Arkansas running clubs throughout the state. The Grand Prix Series features road races of various distances, from 2 miles to a marathon. The Series generally consists of 10 Championship Races and 10 Non-championship Races. Individual runners earn points in each race they enter based on placement among other Grand Prix runners at the race. The state’s running clubs also compete against one another in the Grand Prix Team Competition.

Annual Women Only 5K

The clinics culminate with a women’s 5K in Conway, AR. It is an inspiring race, with some runners and walkers completing their first competitive event, while participants from previous clinics and races return to compete and cheer on their sister athletes.
