About

The Girls on the Run 5K is a non-competitive run/walk event to celebrate the culmination of the Girls on the Run season. More than 1,700 girls 8-14 years of age will participate, along with their coaches, friends, family, teachers and community members. During the course of our ten-week programs, the girls learn about self-respect and healthy living while training for the 5K with the help of their incredible volunteer coaches. As girls from across Southeastern Michigan come together to achieve their goals on 5K day, they will depend on volunteers like you to help them have a safe and inspiring experience!
