Girls on the Run 5k


Our fall 5k is moving virtually! Which means that you can participate in our event in your home, your neighborhood, a park, or anywhere else that you can safely socially distance!


Pick a time, date, and place that works for you. Find your “happy pace” – that might be running or biking a 5K (3.1 miles), a 1-mile walk/run or a 45-minute dance party. Run, walk, roll, bike, dance, jump. As long as you can maintain appropriate social distancing, you can do it!


All participants will receive a race packet including a finisher medal, race t-shirt, and our signature GOTR #1 race bib.

We will also be giving away prizes in different categories like Best Dressed and Top Fundraiser! Find out more when you register today.
