The Body Boutique WOW 5k run is back! What's great is that while the course is now certified by the USA Track and Field Association, the organizers of the race continue to support Lawrence Habitat's Women Build program! We're very lucky to have them support a program that empowers women to get involved on Habitat's construction aspect of volunteering.

Ready to run? Great. The run is November 3 at 7:30 a.m. and starts right outside Body Boutique. The course runs through the neighborhood. Check it out below.

While the race is put on by Body Boutique and supports Women Build, MEN and KIDS are more than welcome to run, too! It's just $23.00 to run. You must register by October 19 to guarantee that you'll get a t-shirt! Register today!

“We are pleased to partner with Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build once again,” said Nora Cox, race director. “Women Build truly exemplifies the name of our race – Women Opening Doors for Women. We are opening doors to fitness, as well as opening literal doors on new homes in the community.”

If you're interested in volunteering or sponsoring the event, contact Nora at 749-2424 or at

We hope you can join us to run and support Women Build!
