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!
For the first time this year we’ve added 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 at 11:10 AM after the 5k has kicked off and participants will receive a special treat when they finish.
The theme of our Spring 2015 Girls on the Run 5k is “What’s your dream?” Come run or cheer on the girls – You will be so glad you joined us!
Current Girls on the Run and Girls on Track program participants and coaching volunteers DO NOT need to register for the 5K; their program registration and their volunteer service includes their entry into the 5K.
