We are thrilled to be partnering with the team over at Tough Runner on this exciting new event.

Some may ask why women only? The simple answer is that for many women entering a race can be really intimidating. We want to create an event that’s more empowering, where all abilities, ages and body shapes are welcome. A race to help women feel more Badass!

We know the team at Tough Runner put on a great event and so this race will also be perfect for those runners looking to challenge themselves on a trail terrain over a 10k distance!
