Woman2Warrior

September 21, 2013 The first annual Woman2Warrior obstacle adventure race in support of Easter Seals took place on September 21, 2013. With girl power galore and high female energy buzzing Swanguard Stadium, it seemed like Vancouver ladies have been waiting for a race like this for a while. Over 250 participants stretched and squealed waiting for their heat. Five km and 12 obstacles later, if the hunky firefighters couldn’t motivate you to just do it, nothing could.  There was no shortage of booty shorts and tutus, as the ladies of Vancouver made a bold statement and a lot of money – in support of a great cause reaching over 106K in the first year. The best part – joining women as they team together their strength, determination and free spirit. The finishers area was impressive, complete with mimosas and tons of samples and treats. Plan your team now for 2014 http://Woman2Warrior.ca ...
