Women’s Five

An event that’s for a good cause and keeps you fit sounds too good to be true but the Women’s Five run is that and more. Included in your registration fee is a five week running and yoga programme that culminates in a fun event when hundreds of women join forces to complete the ‘journey.’ Part of the proceeds goes to local women’s charities.
