Creating the foundation, purpose, and mission of WOMEN RUN LA, Jennifer and Jonathan while volunteering at the Women’s March in Los Angeles had an epiphany. Thinking about their daughter who had been raped. It was during the time of the Me2 movement, the lack of women and girls equity. The injustices that women of all ages, all colors, all backgrounds experienced. During this time women were coming out regarding the sexual abuse that they and girls endured all over the World.
Honoring women’s empowerment, awareness, and encouragement led the WRLA RACE TEAM to produce premier racing events throughout Southern California. These endurance running events included half marathons, 10K, 5K and 1K fun runs. Designed to inspire runners of all genders, all skill levels, and all ages. WRLA is proud that 85% of our participants have been women and girls. WRLA highly appreciates the men and boys who are allies and help to support the WRLA mission.
WRLA events raise funds and awareness for women and children's charities.
The new Women Run Virtual Races - Half Marathon/10K/5K/1K fun run are Run’s for HEALING, Races for OPPORTUNITY, and Walk’s for EMPOWERMENT! Registration opening soon.
