Girls on the Run is a transformational after-school program for 3rd-5th grade girls that empowers girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident. This 5K is not only a celebration of the Girls on the Run participants but makes our 10-week program possible. Girls on the Run teams will be coming from Mountain Brook, Birmingham, Homewood, Vestavia, Hoover, Montevallo, and Bessemer to run their first 5K! This race is open to the community, and all runners, walkers, ages and levels are welcome!
Please join us for a fast, flat race course followed by fun festivities! DJ Steve Sills will provide the race tunes needed to get you pumped up and will be leading an optional group warm up at 7:30am. After the race, there will be delicious snacks, more music, and fun kids activities including bracelet making, picture frame decorating, line dancing, Zumba and more. The 5k will be on Saturday, May 10 at Marconi Park beginning at 8 am.
New this year, our race will be chip timed, and is a certified race course for you to race your first or your fastest 5K!
Registration April – May: $28
