Additional details:

5K Race Timing: This 5K is not a chip-timed event. This is a non-competitive celebratory 5K  for the girls in our program, and we believe strongly in teaching our girls that it's not when you cross the finish line, but how you choose to keep moving forward.

What to wear on 5K Day: Show your spirit and wear your favorite GOTR Shirt! 

Refunds: This event is a rain or shine event and is non-refundable. 

Volunteer at the 5K!

As girls from across our area come together to achieve their goals on 5K day, they will be depending on volunteers like you to help them shine!
