Spring 5Ks

We are thrilled to be participating in three unique 5K events this spring. Keep reading for more information on how you can register or volunteer!

My child(ren) is in Girls on the Run. Do I need to register them for the race too?

You do NOT need to register your child/participant for the 5K race. If they are enrolled in the program, they are registered for the race!

Do I have to register to participate in the 5K?

Yes, all 5K participants MUST be registered to be on the course. For the safety of all, no one without an official bib will be allowed on the course.

Ready. Set. Go! Lace up your sneakers, put on your gear and get ready for a 5K experience unlike any other. The excitement in the air is palpable as the girls meet their teammates, get their pictures taken, chant “Girls on the Run is so much fun” and squeeze in a final energy award before heading to the starting line. Your girl may want to hold your hand, skip, sprint or walk, and no matter what she chooses, you’ll be the support she needs along the course. And at the end, when the finish line comes into sight, you will never forget the look on her face as she crosses and realizes that, indeed, she can accomplish anything she sets her mind to do.

Running Buddies:

  • Are adult women (18+) from the community that want to make a difference (note – family, teachers or other people known to the girls are NOT buddies, but are encouraged to do a standard race registration to run with their girl)
  • Are encouraging and supportive during the 5K
  • Are not focused on their own personal race time
  • Are positive role models that encourage setting a healthy pace
  • Are background checked to ensure safety of all girls
