HAMILTON-WENHAM, MA, March 18, 2014 – On Saturday, May 3rd, 2014, the Hamilton-Wenham Mother’s Club (HWMC) will host the 3rd Annual Fast Chicks 5K. The Fast Chicks 5k is a women’s-only race/walk designed to celebrate active women everywhere.  

New this year:  Girls 13 and under can register for only $15.  Plus the race will be chip-timed for the first time using the MyLaps Bib Tag System.

For this 3rd annual race all monies raised will support Wellspring House, a local non-profit dedicated to empowering individuals and families to live more secure lives through basic needs assistance, education and job training.

“The Fast Chicks 5K is more than just a road race,” says Jessica Minnaar, chair of the race. “It’s a call to action to celebrate the active roles women take as community leaders. To contribute to women’s interest charities and to empower each other, our mothers, our friends, and our daughters to lead, not follow. And it’s also one heck of a way to have fun!”

Although the Fast Chicks 5k is a women’s only run, race organizers auction off a bib number to one wicked lucky “rooster” (male) who will get to join the field and race along side the field of women. To join the fun and submit your bid, visit our facebook page.

The Fast Chicks 5K is only possible with the support of sponsors and volunteers.  Please contact us at fastchicks5k@gmail.com to sign up to volunteer.
