At the end of the 10-week Girls on the Run season, hundreds of 3-8th grade "GOTR Girls" participate in a celebratory, non-competitive 5K event which is the culmination of their season. Crossing the 5K finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

5K SuperStars are volunteers (age 18+) who run the course in flashy GOTR capes and act as a mobile motivation squad for every single runner, providing encouragement and support along the way. Each GOTR girl is required to do the 5K with a trusted adult companion, age 18+, who accompanies and supports each GOTR girl for the duration of the 5K. In the event that a GOTR girl cannot provide her own 5K Adult, a SuperStar will save the day and pair up with her for the race!

These individuals must have a valid background check as they will be interacting with underage program participants. 5K Registration is also required, but the fee will be waived for these volunteers.
