Each season comes to an end with a celebratory 5K. This closing event gives program participants of all abilities a tangible sense of accomplishment. Crossing the finish line instills confidence through completion and is a joyful moment program participants always remember! Everyone who participates in our 5K receives a commemorative medal to celebrate this incredible achievement.

Girls on the Run participants and coaches are already registered for this event and DO NOT need to register again.

What is a 5K Buddy?

A 5K Buddy is 16+ years of age and can be a parent/guardian, family member, neighbor, teacher, GOTR coach, or anyone else your participant would like to run with. 5K Buddies support their Girls on the Run participant by encouraging them to complete the 5K at their "happy pace."

If you’re having difficulty finding a 5K Buddy, please let your coaches know. Your child can be paired with a volunteer 5K Buddy. All volunteer 5K Buddies are vetted and background checked by GOTR Greater Boston.
