From Our Editors

Zooma Women's Race Series hosts races all over the country. In Napa Valley, for example, the half-marathon and 10K wind through lush wine country. The Cape Cod races take place within sight of the ocean and seaside resorts. Chicago runners enjoy views of Lake Michigan and its fish that famously taste like Chicago-style hot dogs. Besides their distances, the events have two other things in common: they're just for women, and they're not just races. Instead, the race series tends to resemble weekend fitness getaways, where mocktail parties, recovery yoga, and other entertainment complement the long runs.

When founder and executive director Brae Blackley was starting out, however, her mission didn't involve fancy drinks or shopping outings. Working at a makeshift coffee-shop desk, her goals were simple: to empower women to lead healthy, active lifestyles and to create a community of female runners. But when Blackley paired her first race in Annapolis with social activities, it drew more than 1,500 participants—and she knew that she was onto something. Her enterprise has grown from there into today's national women's race series.
