2015 Women’s Only Running Races in U.S. & Canada

Women-only road and trail running races are fun, friendly and supportive. Many are perfect for Divas starting out on a walking or running program because the focus is on participation, not fast times!

Listed here are numerous women-only road running races (and a handful of trail races) set for 2015 in the United States and Canada (in alphabetical order first by state or province). Even if an event has passed, do check the website for possible 2016 information.

Please bookmark this page as it will be updated as information is either received by event organizers or discovered. Let me know of any additions, changes or corrections, too!
