At its best, feminism is about equal dignity and respect - the simple idea that women are people and no person is less than any other. The current wave of progressive activism, including the Women's Marches that took over cities all over the world, is a continuation of the fight for equal dignity for all, and an affirmation that if you show up to participate in something larger than yourself, you belong - and that our visibility matters. 

If you've ever been to a 5k or any road race, you have seen support and inclusion in action. Even when you are at the back of the pack (speaking from experience here), everyone wants you to succeed, and they cheer you on. If you show up to participate, you belong. 

Come run/walk/roll with us.

In its debut last year, over 240 runners and walkers turned out for this event.  Kyle Ashe led all finishers with a 19:24 clocking.  Colleen McCarthy led the women in 19:45.

The race begins on Chavis Way at Chavis Park (522 Chavis Way for your GPS) and follows the Little Rock Trail Greenway to the Walnut Creek Wetlands Center, and continues in the Walnut Creek Trail to the turnaround. The route is out and back. There is a water stop near the Wetlands Center.
