*** IMPORTANT - CANCELLATION NOTICE ***
To all WQM Participants, Volunteers & Sponsors,
Due to the impending forecast and current flood zones around the city, we have decided to cancel the 2019 Women’s Quarter Marathon, 5K & Mini-Quarter.
This is not a decision we have come to easily. Taking into consideration that there are portions of Houston that are currently flooded with much more rain to come – it would not be a safe or responsible decision to host the event on Saturday. The Women’s Quarter Marathon is one of our favorite races of the year and are very disappointed not to see you all at the start line this year. However, we would still like to offer the opportunity for you to receive your participant shirt and/or medal. We are currently working with some local venues to host a shirt/medal pick-up – please stay tuned for more details coming very soon!
We thank you for your understanding and wish you all a SAFE and wonderful Mother’s Day weekend, and hope you'll join us for 2020. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

The Women's Quarter Marathon is a "One-of-a-Kind" experience created for you, by women like you! We believe that all women should feel empowered by one another and wanted to bring you together to show you what we are capable of when we come together.
The beautiful 6.55-mile & 5K course was designed to showcase thousands of women and their individual and group strength. We have added a NEW Distance this year... a 5K! Now there really is something for every woman and girl! Grab your closest friends and let's celebrate each other!
We are so excited to announce that this women's-only road race is moving to Downtown, Houston ... and we want YOU to be there. We invite you to join the hundreds of women from our surrounding 19 counties, on Saturday, May 11th, in this fun, one-of-a-kind quarter marathon distance (6.55 miles) road race, 5K and Girl's Mini-Quarter.
Our mission is to empower women and young girls by promoting healthy lifestyles and that all women are created equal.
