Go Wild for Girls on the Run at our Spring 2014 Girls on the Run 5k Event!

Girls on the Run of Franklin County Spring 2014 5K Event

Sunday, May 18th 9AM, 2014 at Columbus Commons

5K starts at 9:00 am.  

On-site registration, Happy Hair, Face Painting, and other pre-race activities will begin at 8:00 am.

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! The theme of our Spring 2014 Girls on the Run 5k is “Go Wild for Girls on the Run!”. Put on your zebra or tiger stripes and cheetah print and let’s ROAR: We love Girls on the Run!

You will be so glad you joined us!
