Women's Distance Festival
Date: September 23, 2017. Location: Optimist Park. Lisa Unger has become a very experienced director of this event and the quality of the race proves it. The emphasis is on celebrating women in sports, and the women often outnumber and out run the men in this race through Indian Head Acres. It has a unique twist in that the women start 5 minutes before the men. Records fell in 2011 as the women’s winner almost broke 17 minutes. The race began with Dot Skofronick and Shirley Bull as race directors in 1982.
