Join us as GOTR/STRIDE celebrate the completion of a 10-week run program!

We believe that accomplishment comes in all flavors and everyone who participates, whether they run, walk, hop, skip, or even cartwheel across the finish line. It is to be honored and congratulated. 

The season of learning about the importance of taking care of our emotional and physical health truly embodies our mission of inspiring young ladies and men to be joyful, healthy, and confident as the culminating event of the GOTR/STRIDE curriculum.  It is a moment in time that beautifully reflects the very essence of the program goals.  

Public runners are welcome as this race provides scholarships to children who need assistance participating in the Girls on the Run and STRIDE programs. Professional race production by the New River YMCA and timing by Run with the East ensures a fun, safe, and accurate 5K race experience.
