8 Reasons to Run The Bellin Women's Half Marathon

Fun, Excitement, Epic Swag, Finisher Medal:  
All Great Reasons to Run the Bellin Women's Half Marathon!  
But, there's SO much more! 

Here are my TOP 8 reasons to run this very exciting race!    

1.  Women's ONLY race.  How cool is that?!?  There's something neat about the camaraderie of women in running.  Lots of laughs.  New friendships and so much FUN!   Plus,  women who run half-marathons for fun are known to be a little bit "bad-ass." 

2.  Amazing finisher medal for ALL participants.  The design is still top-secret, but I'm sure it will be amazing!

3.  Great Swag.  Who wouldn't want this awesome hoodie.  It's so adorable!

4.  All finishers get to ride the Sea Dragon at Bay Beach Amusement Park!  The park is opening the ride exclusively for the women who run this race!  Seriously awesome!  This is also the starting line of the race!

5.  Race participants get a FREE ticket to the Friday night Women's Inspirational Dinner.  This is a great place to mingle with your friends and maybe even meet new ones!

6.  All finishers receive a Bellin Women's Headband FREE as well!  It's so cute!

7.   Opportunity to buy more great gear!  I really love this long sleeve shirt!

8.  Bellin Women's Half Marathon is the FIRST race to partner with 261Fearless!    

"261 is named after the famous bib number Kathrine Switzer wore when she was the first  women to officially run  the Boston Marathon. The number now stands for 'Fearless', and 261 Fearless, Inc is about the community of women who are transformed by running and their global movement to empower other women everywhere.  For more information, go to"  

Disclaimer:  I took the above information DIRECTLY from the race website.  

How amazing is this?  If that doesn't empower you.... I don't know what will!  

If you're looking for a great October race, make the drive to Green Bay, WI and join hundreds of other like-minded women and take home the satisfaction of finishing a great race!  I'm sure you won't regret it!  

The race is Saturday, October 8th.  Go to the race website, here for more details!   Read on for a few racer testimonials!

  1. Oh wow that looks like a fun one! I'll bet Green Bay is lovely in October too. My local library takes old running shoe donations. So does Road Runner Sports!

    1. Good info on the shoes Marcia! Thank you!!

  2. This sounds like a great race! I'd love to get up there in October. Too bad I have to work that morning.

    1. Maybe we could meet up there next year! :)
