BOISE -- The annual Women's Fitness Celebration has evolved into a year-round program organizers hope will engage more women, and their families as well.

Organizers have renamed the event "Fitone."

The event will be held September 19 - 21.

Yes, it's still owned and run by the St. Luke's Hospital of Boise and it still supports the St. Luke's Children's Hospital too.

However, notable changes to this year's event include the addition of a slightly longer, 9K run option, a two-day fitness expo, and future changes, including a planned half-marathon in 2014.

Also new this year, participants who finish the 9K will receive a participation medal. All finishers will get new, breathable, technical fabric t-shirts as well.

For complete details see the event's new website.

However, it's not just the event name and race length that's changing.

Olympic gold-medal winning cyclist Kristin Armstrong says the race is meant to promote a healthier lifestyle year-round.

Armstrong joined St. Luke's as the executive director of Community Health for the Ortho/Neuro and Sports Medicine programs on Tuesday.
