We love when women support and encourage other women. And a great example of when that happens is the Virtual Women’s Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, Double and Triple challenge race series.
The VWHM was founded by Dawna and Michelle Stone in 2009. These sisters began the series in their hometown of Florida. Having decades of experience in the field, Dawna was the founder of the very successful award-winning publication, Women’s Running magazine, which she sold in 2012.
Dawna feels that "seeing women of all ages cross the finish line and achieve their goals is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever experienced."
The Virtual Women’s Half Marathon began in 2019 and has gained popularity quickly and is now one of the largest female-only races in the USA and has runners participating in all of the nation’s 50 states.
VWHM makes it easy by offering different distances that best meet your running needs including a double or even triple challenge where you can do all 3 days and distances.
All races begin at 7am no matter your time zone (but if you can’t make that time, don’t worry, you can choose your own start time so it fits perfectly with your schedule.) So grab your girlfriends and let’s get going!
Another reason why the VWHM series is so awesome is because it's VIRTUAL! This means you can run wherever you want and is most convenient for you and your friends or run group.
And of course, the swag is fantastic! With your registration, you will receive a beautiful 2-in-1 medal that has a removable charm, a technical tee to flaunt (because if you got it, flaunt it), a finisher bib, a certificate and an Ultima Replenisher sample pack with six different flavors so you can find your fav flavor(s) to love.
The Half Marathon race starts on Saturday, September 25th. 10k and 5k start on Sunday, September 26th. If you decide to sign up, use code ULTIMA21 for a $5 discount on any distance!
We can't wait to run with you!
