Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia is looking for 200+ volunteers to help run our 5K. We need tons of volunteer power to make our 5k events a success, so we could really use your help! Volunteers are needed to fill various positions at various times in the morning between 6:15am-11:00am. There are two different locations and dates.

If you are available to help on Saturday, May 19th in Woodbridge at Pfitzner Stadium or Sunday, May 20th in Ballston at Welburn Square, then please consider volunteering at one (or both!) of our Girls on the Run Fall 5k events!

We have a volunteer opportunity for everyone at our 5ks! Leading up to the 5k, we have Packet Pick-Ups in locations throughout Northern Virginia for runners to pick up their 5k bib and t-shirt, and we need volunteers to help staff these Packet Pick-Ups. Additionally, we have volunteer needs in the following areas the day of the two 5k events:
