Talk it up and get your friends and family members involved! This is a single day event where almost anyone can complete a 5k (~3 miles), so why not run on a team with your girlfriends? The Woman of Steel Relay Run is ~54 miles in length, split into ~3 mile segments. Starting on Saturday morning with teams of 3 – 6 women, each person on your team will take turns running three to six separate 5k’s and finish on Saturday evening (No sleeping in cars)! Located in beautiful Heber Valley, you will start and finish at one of Utah’s most scenic towns where you can treat yourself like a queen!
This race is for anyone and everyone who is ready for a worry-free, lady friendly event (sorry guys, women only, but we want you there to cheer them on!).
