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 an 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.  

Additional Event Details:  T-shirts guaranteed for all 5K participants registered prior to midnight November 13, 2023. There will be no day of registration.

Bring an unwrapped gift for Valerie's House, and receive a special treat from GOTR!
