December 20, 2016 – Katy, Texas – Registration is now open for the second annual Women’s Quarter Marathon – one of the few women’s only races in Houston, Texas.
“I loved being a part of this race,” says Tasha Smith, 2016 participant. “There were cheers from not only the sidelines, but from runners themselves, encouraging each other along the way. It was a very inspiring morning with awesome gear, a friendly atmosphere, and a beautiful course!”
The team behind the event, Randi Schooley and Lauren Smith from iRun Productions, founded the Women’s Quarter Marathon to empower women and young girls by promoting healthy lifestyles and that all women are created equal.
“We encourage all women of all ages to join us, no matter where they are in their athletic abilities,” said Randi Schooley. “The race is really more about promoting fitness, raising funds for a good cause, and enjoying a day outdoors with other women.”
The Women’s Quarter Marathon also has a Mini-Quarter Marathon, which was designed for girls under the age of 12 who also want to join the movement.
“This is an excellent opportunity for women who have never run before to cross the finish line in a non-competitive and supportive atmosphere,” says Lauren Smith. “We’re proud to be able to foster this empowering environment where we can celebrate each other’s achievements.”
Registration for the Women’s Quarter Marathon is $50, which includes a long-sleeve participant shirt, finisher’s medal, entry to the post-race party, post-race food, and two (2) tickets to the Karbach Beer & Mimosa Bar. The Mini-Quarter Marathon is $15 and includes a Mini-Quarter Participant Tee, Finisher’s Medal, and post-race food. Prices will increase on race day.
