On your marks, get set…GO! Registration for the More Magazine/ Fitness Magazine 2014 Women’s Half-Marathon is now open. The 11th annual half-marathon, presented by More and FITNESS magazines in conjunction with New York Road Runners, will be held in New York City’s Central Park on Sunday, April 13, 2014. The race is open to women runners and walkers of all ages.
The More Magazine/ Fitness Magazine Women’s Half-Marathon is the largest all women’s half-marathon in the country and it brings together women of all backgrounds and all ages. This year, the event is expecting over 20,000 participants and spectators. The presenting sponsors are Athleta, Skechers, Duane Reade and Tonalin are the official product sponsors.
The event is not just about the 13.1-mile race. The weekend begins on Friday, April 11 with a two-day Health & Wellness Expo at the Metropolitan Pavilion. The expo is free to the public and includes health screenings, fitness seminars, food and product sampling, sweepstakes and more. This is where women can pick up their runner’s information, and also participate in health-oriented activities.
The half- marathon is not only empowering for those running in the race, but helps to raise funds and awareness for the event’s charitable partners CARE and Girls on the Run NYC. CARE is an organization that empowers women around the world to help end global poverty, and Girls on the Run NYC is a not for profit program for girls in 3rd through 8th grades that uses running to inspire health, confidence and joy.
