Girls on the Run 5K Celebration Run

Physical activity is woven into the Girls on the Run program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each three-month session, the girls participate in a 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum. Completing the 5K gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that come through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

We invite community runners to run or walk with us. Strollers are welcome but pets and costumes with weapons are not.

We are excited to be partnering with the 165th Air Lift Wing of the Georgia Air National Guard for the GOTR 5K Celebration Run to be held on Veteran’s Day Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017. In order to host this event on a military base, all participants in the 5k Celebration Run, over the age of 18, must complete a mandatory background check through the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Upon completion of your registration, Allison Sigmon will be in touch with the necessary background consent form to be completed and returned. Without this completed background check, you will be required to complete it the morning of the event. To avoid delays, return this form immediately to Allison. Anyone failing to complete or not meeting the necessary requirements will be turned away and denied access the morning of the 5k Celebration Run.

Fall 2017 Girls on the Run program participants DO NOT need to register for the 5K; their program registration includes their entry into the 5K. Family members who wish to run alongside their program girl must register for the 5K. Questions? Contact us at 5kcelebrationrun@gmail.com.

Race Notes: The community runners will receive a commemorative T-shirt but the run will not be timed and awards will not be given - in keeping with the philosophy of our program that the girls should do their best, keep on going and the speed doesn't matter.
