Held in memory of race co-founder Diane Sherrer, the Women’s Distance Festival 5K celebrates women’s running with a women-only road race and walk. Mothers, daughters, sisters, and women partners run together along the scenic waterfront trail in Ithaca’s Stewart Park. Along with individual and age group awards, special awards will be given to the first mother/daughter, sister/sister, grandmother/granddaughter, and women partner teams. Men are welcome…as fans and volunteers.

In recognition and support of the Advocacy Center of Tompkins County, participants will have an opportunity to donate funds during registration and when picking up bib numbers. The Advocacy Center (formerly the Task Force For Battered Women/ Child Sexual Abuse Project) has provided support, advocacy and education for survivors of domestic violence since 1977, survivors of child sexual abuse since 1982, and survivors of adult sexual assault since 2003. The goal of the Advocacy Center is to help reduce the trauma that results from domestic violence, sexual assault, and child sexual abuse.
