The Frederick Women’s Distance Festival is presented by the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club.
This 5k race for female runners and walkers promotes health and fitness among women of all ages and abilities. The front of the pack is pretty competitive, but we have plenty of beginners and walkers. Amenities include technical race shirt, swag bag, post-race refreshments, and awards for overall individuals/teams and three-deep in five-year age groups.
The main 5k event is held at 8:00am. The "Little Women 1k Fun Run", for girls age 13 and under, will be held at 7:30am.
Proceeds benefit the Women's Giving Circle of Frederick County, assisting local women and children in need.
