Women - of all ages, generations, fitness levels, running
enthusiasts, walkers, wheelers, strollers -can all benefit from the
coming together to encourage each other, celebrate and enjoy a grand day
for themselves. The grandmothers can inspire their granddaughters, the
young ones can hop, skip and jump their way to a finish, mothers and
daughters can cheer and run side by side for support. Memories are made
in company of friends, colleagues, family and our 'competitors. This is
the day for all of the women to be Divas, for fitness, for health, for
the pure enjoyment of being out and on the move. Our gracious host is
again Community Medical Center, and with their spirit and energy, the
party will be better than ever.
Women: Come and celebrate your strength, your future and your past with your friends, daughters, mothers, grandmothers, nieces, all welcome!

+++++++++++++++++++++Notice: Sept 26th
Our Diva numbers are rising like the tides... and you should prepare to be in the first line...
As of Sept 25th, we are already at 680 women and girls. Wow! If these numbers grow like other years in the last 2 weeks, we will top 1,000 easily. We'd like to be able to plan for the right amount of food, water, port-o-lets, and timing chips, and to figure out how to arrange the start to keep it smooth. It will be a chip time from when you cross the start line to when you cross the finish line, so no need to rush to the front.
Now..why be in the top 1,000?
All participants will get a great scarf. It's long grey ring-spun cotton with our 2012 race logo. But, you may have to wait for a second order if you are past the 1,000th to register. And, of course, everyone who registers participates in the party! We have: pre-race stretching, music from 102.5 Mountain FM, water and (yes chocolates) on the run, post race massage/consults by Alpine PT, photo-booth and face-painting courtesy of Community Medical Center, Oula dancing with the Women's Club, brow waxing at the Skin Chic table, post race snacks, random drawings, a free kids run, and more tables at the expo to check out.
We have 1,000 Diva Day race bibs. These bibs will make sure that you get the scarf at packet pickup friday or on race day. You will also get a race bag with all sorts of good stuff: Sports Beans sample from Runner's Edge and/or a protein bar sample from The Women's Club, a coupon for socks from LinnSocks (free socks but you pay shipping), and lots of flyers and other goodies. Folks past the 1,000 will still get a bib (but not a diva one) and a timing chip. And many will still get a bag, but it may be a bit emptier than than the first 1,000 ones.
All will be eligible for the random drawings and top 3 finishers in each of our 17 age groups.
So -- don't wait any longer. Get going to our on-line registration and reserve your Diva bib. We'll try to post our reg numbers every other day to let you know how it stands.
