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 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!
A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Houston Area Women's Center.
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.
