Girls on the Run 5K Your Way

 

Girls on the Run NJ East has gone virtual this spring, and will celebrate the resiliency of our girls and volunteers with a FREE 5K Your Way - anytime, anyplace, on Saturday, June 6 or Sunday, June 7. 

Everyone in our community is welcome to register, so get ready to run, walk, skip, bike or roll 5K, or any distance you choose, to show girls of all ages that their goals are still achievable.

If you aren’t ready to MOVE the distance, GOTR will provide some fun, physical challenges to try instead. This family-friendly event encourages kids and parents to get active in whatever space you have available. 

Visit girlsontherunnj.org to register for this FREE community event, and receive a downloadable race-day bib, activity card and training plan. Participation is free, however, donations are welcome to support GOTRNJ-East’s scholarship fund, which helps make our program accessible to all girls, regardless of their ability to pay the program fees.

What is a Virtual 5K (3.1 miles)? 

This is a fun run to complete with your family on June 6 or 7. You choose the time and place, following social distancing guidelines, and run, walk, or stroll at your pace. Try your own neighborhood or a local park. Don’t worry about how far or fast you go! 

 

What if I’m not Ready to Run 5K?

No problem! We teach our girls to find their happy pace and keep moving forward. Instead of running, you can choose to complete a Girls on the Run Physical Activity Card (to be shared after registering). These fun challenges celebrate the joy of movement and highlight some lessons girls learn throughout our program. Aim to complete as many as you can!
