WRA 5K IS GOING VIRTUAL
Due to COVID-19 we have decided to hold the race virtually this year. That means you can complete the 5k anyway you please and on your own time. Track, trail, treadmill, or road with friends, family or by yourself, as long as you complete 3.1 miles. To secure a shirt AND a medal please register by April 30, 2020. After April 30, 2020 but before May 30, 2020 you will still get a medal, but we cannot guarantee a shirt. We still want to celebrate with you so please post pictures of your 5K on social media using #VirtuallyUnstoppable and #WRA202. Cannot wait to see you next year!!
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.
If you participated in a WRA clinic, you have to register as a clinic participant. If you did not participate in a WRA clinic then you register in the open division.
The 2020 WRA 5K is limited to 1600 participants.
Registrations are non-transferable and non-refundable. Race Director reserves the right to call the race for inclement weather or other imminent issues.
Clinic Participants must indicate as such on the race registration. Those not participating in clinic training must register in the open division. Clinic directors/leaders must register as a leader. Violations may result in disqualification. A second offense will result in a 3-year suspension from the race. A third offense will result in a lifetime ban from the race.

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.
