DO I HAVE TO KNOW A GOTR PARTICIPANT TO REGISTER FOR THE 5K?

No, everyone is welcome to join us! We offer two categories of registration for the 5k - running buddies and community runners. Running buddies are a trusted adult (family member or friend) invited by a girl to run alongside her at the Girls on the Run 5k, supporting her and celebrating her accomplishment. Community Runners are anyone (any age or gender) who would like to participate in the race on their own.
