Welcome to Carbondale Women Run

Carbondale Women Run is a women's running group based in in Carbondale, Illinois, with the initial goal of getting as many women as possible to run the Women Together 5K race
on November 13, 2010. This race is a fundraiser for the Carbondale Women's Center.

To train for the race, CWR will hold twice a week low-key run/walk sessions that will follow the Couch to 5K method. These sessions will combine walking with running, with the eventual goal of running the entire 5K (3.1 miles). The run/walk method allows you to build up endurance slowly, so if you haven't run before, this would be a fine way to start. The training runs will also serve to build community among women athletes here in the C-dale area. The training sessions will start at the beginning of October. Each session will be no longer than a half-hour, and will take place around Campus Lake. There will be no fee for the sessions themselves, but each CWR member will pay for her own race registration.
