GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Bellin Women's Half Marathon is adding a 5K race -- and this time it's female-focused.

Linda Maxwell, the race director, says the race will allow more women to participate with a distance of 3.1 miles.

We know some women simply prefer a shorter race, while others may not yet be ready to tackle the half marathon or half marathon relay distance

The race will start at downtown Green Bay's KI Convention Center and wrap up at the City Deck. Runners will race through the neighborhoods between S. Monroe Avenue and the Fox River, then head down the Fox River Trail.

Everyone that runs the race will receive a hoodie and medallion.

Registration begins April 1, and the race will take place on October 6.
