Strong. Determined. Powerful.
That’s the slogan behind Woman2Warrior, Vancouver’s only all-woman charity obstacle adventure race, taking place Sunday, May 24 at Swangard Stadium and Burnaby Central Park.
Launched in 2013, Woman2Warrior is back for its third year running and better than ever, with five kilometres of trails, track and grass, a dozen different secret obstacles and a post-event festival. Participants can expect everything from crawling through tunnels and climbing walls to ice baths designed to test their strength, agility and balance – all in the name of fun and adventure. Interested in joining forces while giving back to the community? We’ve rounded up the top five reasons for you to push yourself, register today and unleash your inner warrior!
Just to give you a little added incentive, we’re offering 50% off registration now until May 8, 2015. Click here and use promo code VANBUZZWARRIOR.
Why you should join Woman2Warrior
1. Give back to the kids
Every year, Woman2Warrior helps send over 800 kids and young adults with disabilities to a week long camping experience at one of three Easter Seals accessible camps. The goal of Easter Seals camps is to provide safe, fun activities in an environment where the focus is on abilities, not disabilities. In 2014, Woman2Warrior participants raised a collective $157,000 for the cause.
2. Challenge yourself
The five kilometre run and all obstacles are designed with all fitness levels in mind (there’s no timer and assistance from volunteer firefighters is encouraged!), so everyone can feel comfortable participating. Don’t want to complete a certain obstacle? Don’t worry, no one will tell! Earn your bragging rights and check that first 5K off your bucket list – it’s the perfect opportunity to revisit those long-forgotten New Year’s resolutions.
3. Join a movement
Woman2Warrior brings the best and brightest women in the region together in the name of a single cause. Supportive and enthusiastic participants range from mothers of Easter Seals campers to past camp counselors to connectors looking to get involved! Rally the troops, join the community and network while doing something good.
4. Dress the part
There’s no fun in going to battle without a creative outfit. Get down and dirty while wearing your most creative get-up – think wigs, tutus, fairy wings and more. Dress outside of the box, and you might just win some amazing prizes for best-dressed warrior!
5. Fundraise to fly
You deserve a big reward for becoming a warrior, so why not kick up your feet in your dream destination of choice? Raise over $500 and you will be entered to win two round-trip flights to any West Jet destination!
