Girls on the Run of Central NJ is taking its 5K Virtual!
Participation in the Virtual 5K is FREE.
However, you can donate $10 or the amount of your choice to Girls on the Run Central NJ during registration. 100% of your donation will go to the GOTRCNJ Scholarship Fund which makes the GOTR program accessible to girls who otherwise would not be able to participate. You can also create a running/fundraising team!
We are really excited about our Virtual 5K this season and the chance to celebrate each and every girl in our program and the unstoppable strength, resilience and confidence they have shown to navigate even the toughest of situations such as this one. Our theme is Rainbow Run for Fun, so remember to wear your favorite color of the rainbow for your 5K! Our goal is to reach 1,000+ participants to honor the 1,000 girls who would have been running their first 5K at our celebratory in-person event.
Upon registering you will receive a confirmation email with a link to access the 10 week GOTR 5K training plan that the whole family can use!! It's based on time and 3 days per week. Each week of the 10 week training period all registrants will be entered into a drawing for GOTR prizes that will be mailed directly to you! An email will be sent closer to race weekend with a link to your printable bib and completion certifiate!
It's an event that can be completed on your own time and in your own place – your neighborhood, even your backyard or living room. Find your “happy pace” – that might be running/walking the full 5K in one day, running/walking 1.5 miles one day and 1.6 miles the next or running/walking 1 mile each of the 3 days. Run, walk, skip, dance or a combination of all!. Find what works for you. As long as you can maintain appropriate social distancing, you can do it!
Celebrate your success through pictures and videos that you send in. You will receive a Rainbow Run for Fun sign you can print out and hold up for your picture or video to show your accomplishment! Please share your success by emailing pictures and videos to me at email@example.com or you can post directly on our social media channels here: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Use the hashtag #GOTRCNJYourPaceYourPlace.

A printable bib
