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 25 minutes, most cross the finish line in 30-50 minutes. Everyone who participates is encouraged to walk, roll, push, run or skip at their happy pace!

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. Remember, this is the first 5K event for many – including coaches, participants, friends and family members. We are in it together!

For safety reasons, every participant must wear a race bib (provided by the council). Our council ensures that only critical 5K volunteers have access to confidential information.

To ensure every participant crosses the finish line, we monitor the course and conduct head counts. Our council has a safety plan in place, which trains staff and volunteers on how 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 the council or by the parent/guardian to complete the 5K alongside a program participant during the 5K event, for the entire duration of the course.

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

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

If travel time prohibits a team from attending the Celebratory 5k, a site-based 5k is an option. A site-based 5K means the 5K course will take place at the site where an individual team practiced throughout the season.

Yes. All 5K registration forms include liability waivers.

Yes! The 2023 5K shirt is an optional add-on ordered during registration. The cost is $20. This year's shirt is a performance tee and is available in unisex, ladies fit and youth in sizes S-2XL. You can choose neon pink or neon green.

Yes! Our Council is selling merchandise to support our program! Be sure to look for our merchandise booth/tent to commemorate this memorable event.

Yes! As this is the highlight of the season, there will be face painting, colored hairspray, temporary tattoo stations and more! Of course, we’ll have merchandise for sale, too!

Yes, the registration increases by $5 on the event day.
