Anyone who has been to a Girls on the Run 5K knows that it is unlike any other running event. It is a celebration of and for the girls who are completing a ten week season of Girls on the Run programming. By the day of the 5K, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race! Positive energy abounds as the girls dance to warm-up music, get their hair “happied” and “tattoos” on their faces, and gather with their teammates to hold hands as they head to the starting line. Our 5K is a non-competitive event that will bring a smile to your face! You will be so glad you joined us!
Join us race day and help make this a special day for all of our girls, their families and those in the community who come out to support. Close to 100 volunteers are needed in many different areas of help, so register online today and join in the fun! For the safety of our girls, all volunteers must complete a background check (free of charge) or provide current copies of clearances. Once you complete the volunteer registration, you will be contacted by our volunteer coordinator Amanda, or Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC volunteer department, to complete the background requirements.
Family, friends and businesses can help support our girls, and our program, by purchasing ad space in our souvenir program booklets. Send a positive message to your Girl on the Run, or advertise your business in these programs which are included in over 700 race packets and distributed at the event. In addition to ad space, yard signs displayed on the course are available to purchase. Find out more below – orders are preferred through our online 5K store, but can also be mailed in with payment. Due to print deadlines, content and payment MUST BE RECEIVED BY NOVEMBER 3rd – no exceptions.
Race shirts are included with each paying 5K registration. Girls in the program do not receive a 5K shirt. Extra shirts can be added on to any 5K registration, or purchased race day from sizes available.
