Anyone who has been to a Girls on the Run 5K knows that it is unlike any other running event. It is a celebration of and for the girls who are completing a ten week season of Girls on the Run programming. By the day of the 5K, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race! Positive energy abounds as the girls dance to warm-up music, get their hair “happied” and “tattoos” on their faces, and gather with their teammates to hold hands as they head to the starting line. Our 5K is a non-competitive event that will bring a smile to your face!
We’re also having a Kiddie Run for kids age 7 and younger who want to join the fun but aren’t quite ready for the full 5k. The 50 yard dash will start after the 5k has kicked off around 9:10am.
Current Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole program participants and current season coaching volunteers DO NOT need to register for the 5K; their program registration and their volunteer service includes their entry into the 5K.
Online registration is NOW OPEN! Register here.
*GOTR/GOT alumnae, which are girls who have participated in the program in the past, can email email@example.com for a 50% off discount code for one entry. Verification of previous participation in Girls on the Run or Girls on Track will be done before a discount code is provided.
