Girls on the Run of NOVA

5K start line

The Girls on the Run 5K is a unique, end-of-season event that brings together thousands of NOVA girls, their families, and community members for a celebratory 5K run.

To be a success each 5K event needs over 100 total volunteers in a variety of roles! Our 5K volunteers serve as greeters, buddy runners, cheer marshals, start and finish line managers, water stops managers, and much more. Volunteers are needed to fill positions at various times in the morning between 6:00am-11:00am. We have a job for everyone who wants to help!
