Registration Underway for the Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run

Runners can find out more through a popular running app

Registration has opened for the Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run, and this year there is an easy way to keep up with the event. Participants can register at or load the popular race app Race IT and register through it.

The Women’s Only will be held Saturday, Oct. 1, at Women’s Hospital. Proceeds

from the Women’s Only help provide screening mammograms through the Mammography Scholarship Fund. The fund enables women who might not otherwise be able to afford a screening mammogram to receive one of these potentially lifesaving tests.

This year participants can download Race IT and keep up with the Women’s Only. In addition to being an easy way to register for the event, the app is ideal for:

  • Keeping up with run announcements.
  • Donating to the Mammography Scholarship Fund.
  • Reviewing the course map.
  • Connecting with your Facebook friends about the Women’s Only.
  • Allowing family and friends to monitor your progress as you move along the United States Track & Field-certified course.
  • Getting results on race day.

The Women’s Only is one of the largest races of its type in the Southeast. Festivities begin at 8:15 a.m. with the Girls’ Only Mini-Walk & Run for participants 6 years old and younger. There will be dozens of exhibitors, Jazzercise warm-ups and other activities. Men can support the women they love through the Men’s Only Support Team.

Early bird registration is $30 before Sept. 7. After that date, registration is $40. Girls’ Only Mini-Walk & Run registration is $10. Men’s Only Support Team registration is $30. Register at or through the Race IT app.   

About one in eight American women will develop invasive breast cancer. The Cone Health Cancer Center treats more breast cancer cases than any other type of cancer. Mammograms are considered the gold standard of early detection.
