Join us for the 32nd annual Frederick Women's Distance Festival!

In-person racing is back! But our runners loved the virtual option last year, so we're offering both in 2021.

Participants may transfer between the in-person and virtual race events until July 30th.

Rest assured that we will have detailed COVID safety procedures in place in alignment with current federal, state, and local health recommendations.

Net proceeds will again be donated to The Women's Giving Circle of Frederick County.

For more information, see our website at https://frederickwdf.com

The Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club offers a nine-week summer training program for women in preparation for the Frederick Women's Distance Festival 5k.  The coaches are excited to be able to bring our beloved women's 5k training program back this year for in-person training runs.

Registration for the training program is separate from registration for the race. Signup at:  https://runsignup.com/fsrcwdf5ktraining.  The training program is free for members of the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club. If you're not already a member, you will need to signup before registering for the training program.
