5k details

Amenities

Your 5k registration provides you access to all pre-5k activities including GOTR entertainment, interactive sponsor booths, 5k t-shirt, finisher medal, and finish area refreshments.

Event Guide

Our Event Guide will allow you to prepare for 5k day and navigate the celebration with ease. We break down details of the morning in an easy to read, printer and mobile friendly format while updating each season so you'll have all the current information. Once the Event Guide is live, you can click here to view.

WAVE START

What is a wave start? A staggered start releasing small groups of similar paces rather than one giant start for all. We utilize a four-wave start for safety and reduced course density. Please identify the appropriate wave for your 5k participation and line up accordingly in the start area when called. Waves will be Run, Run/Walk, Walk, and Stroller Walkers/Group Casual Walkers.

Cheer Zones

These groups are often local businesses and organizations who donate their time to our 5k celebration. Groups are placed throughout the entire course to cheer and encourage all participants. Cheer zones make our 5k unique from most any other 5k events and really keep our course energized and engaged.

Help us make the 5K celebration a memorable day for over 1,600 local pre-teen girls!  In addition to the athletic accomplishment, we want every girl (regardless of her ability) to understand the power of setting a goal and accomplishing it. We want this day to be something special that both she and her family will remember for a long time. Thank you for helping us to make this a reality!
