5k Event

5k starts at 10:00 am
Family-Friendly Activities begin at 8:30 am

At the end of the 10-week Girls on the Run season, all of our girls in our 14 county territory will participate in Community 5k Event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience within the GOTR curriculum. Girl set running goals over the course of the program which helps prepare them for the final event. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when your girl realizes that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

We encourage parents, siblings, family, and friends to run/walk with your girl to celebrate reaching her goal!

Once online registration closes, you will be able to register in person at packet pick-up on May 18th between 4pm & 6pm at the GOTR office (907 Clocktower Drive, Springfield, IL) OR the morning of the 5k between 8:30am and 9:30am.

Weather Policy

We will run rain or shine. The event will be held as scheduled except in the case of severe weather (lightening or dangerous thunderstorms). In the case of severe weather, we may postpone the start of the race, but no later than 10:30 a.m.
