The course for a 5K is 3.1 miles. 

As a reminder, this is a fun, celebratory event for our participants and not a competitive race. While our fastest 5K participants will complete the course in roughly 25 minutes, most cross the finish line in 30-60 minutes. Everyone who participates is encouraged to walk, run or skip at their happy pace and to do their own personal best!

First, we understand that life happens, and circumstance might make it impossible to attend.

We strongly encourage that all participants attend and complete the 5K, as it is the goal that teams are preparing for all season long! It’s the ultimate opportunity to build confidence through accomplishment. It is the culminating event of the season and a morning to remember!

For safety reasons, every participant must wear a race bib (provided by the council) with emergency information on the back. Only critical 5K volunteers have access to confidential information.

To ensure every participant crosses the finish line, we monitor the course with the help of our local police dept and other volunteers. Our council has a safety plan in place and our local Fire & EMS is on site to respond during an emergency or incident.

Yes. Girls on the Run 5K events are for everyone! All participants can walk, run, push or roll safely and at their own happy pace. Designated parking spots are available.

A Running Buddy is an individual designated by a parent/guardian to complete the 5K alongside a program participant during the 5K event to help keep participant safe and to cheer/motivate them.

Yes! This is encouraged! This is a great way to accomplish a goal together. 

Every registered participant will receive a t-shirt if registered by date deadline. Medals are for the GOTR participants only.

Yes! Family, friends and community members outside of our program can participate in the event, but must register.

Yes. All 5K registration forms include liability waivers.

Yes! As this is the highlight of the season, there will be face painting, happy hair stations and music!
