Running Buddy Registrations
A running buddy is someone at least 18 years of age who runs with one of the Girls on the Run participants to help encourage her through the 5K. If a GOTR participant has asked you to be her running buddy, please provide her name (and school, if known) when you register. If you do not already have a running buddy, we'll put you on a waiting list and assign you to your buddy on race day, and you must consent to a background check.
Packet Pick Up
Race packets and t-shirts will be available for pick up on
- Thursday, May 9, at Academy Sports, from 4 – 7 PM

GOTR participants will receive their t-shirts during the last week of GOTR sessions, and they'll receive their packets from their coaches prior to the race. Race packets include race bibs and timing chips.
