Iron Girl ChallengeJoin the Iron Girl Team for the fifth annual Aflac Iron Girl 10K and 5K Run/Walk on April 5, 2008.  The longest-standing event in the Aflac Iron Girl National Series will take athletes along a waterfront course in Clearwater, Fla., one of the world’s most-visited beach destinations.  Featuring a picturesque run over the Memorial Causeway and a turn-around point at the well-known Pier 60, this course is the perfect combination of challenge and fun.  Seasoned athletes and novices alike will appreciate the scenery and ideal racing conditions.

Iron Girl ChallengeUnique features include performance shirts sized just-for-women, personalized race bibs, IPICO Sports timing, custom finisher medals and much more.  Celebrate your accomplishment at the post-race catered Breakfast Café and awards ceremony as we recognize the top three finishers in each division, acknowledge participants of all fitness levels and showcase inspirational athlete stories.  Fundraising efforts will benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund to help support young adults living with and recovering from cancer.

Since its launch in 2004, Iron Girl has established itself as a premier all-women’s event series.  Iron Girl has matured from two short-distance events in 2004 to a growing list of events varying in distance from 5K to triathlon and duathlon.  The mission of Iron Girl is to empower women toward a healthy lifestyle. To learn more about the Aflac Iron Girl 10K and 5K Run/Walk, as well as Iron Girl’s nine other events nationwide, visit www.IronGirl.com
