The event is open to males and females. Participants of all levels of fitness (walkers, recreational and competitive runners) are welcome to compete. There is a female-focus to celebrate female runners; their strength and their ability to use running as a means to connect with one another. Join us and run in fashionable, feminine running gear.

The event is a ’Girls’ Weekend Away’ where you can enjoy a wonderful time with your female counterparts during training in leading up to the event and also during the weekend. Girlfriends, grandmothers, mums, sisters and daughters are the stars.

Founded by managing director and running coach of Dynamic Running, Lorraine Lawson, the ‘Dynamic in a Dress Running Festival’ and free 8-week training program is designed to promote health, wellness and fitness among women, girls and their families.
