GIRLS ON THE RUN LAS VEGAS TO HOST FALL 5K VIRTUALLY
NOV. 21 – DEC. 20
For the first time, Girls on the Run Las Vegas (GOTR) will stage its seasonal Fall 5K virtually. Participants can complete the 5K any time between Saturday, Nov. 21 and Sunday, Dec. 20 at a location of their choice. Girls are encouraged to run, walk, bike, wheel, stroll or skip to complete the virtual race. This season’s celebratory virtual event will take place with 65 girls from 8 different sites around the valley, as well as their adult running buddies and community runners. Registration is still open for community runners.
Additionally, for those who sign up as Community Runners or Cheering Section, the GOTR Board of Directors will match dollar for dollar donated back to GOTR program, up to $5,000.
Each year, Girls on the Run hosts two 5K events, gathering young girls from elementary and middle schools in Clark County to accomplish one common goal—to be healthy, confident and joyful. Each girl runs with an adult Running Buddy who runs alongside them during the 5K. This celebratory, non-competitive event marks the conclusion of a season-long, experienced-based curriculum designed to develop confidence, friendship, strength and emotional and spiritual health in young girls—all while integrating running. The program provides participants with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal-setting at a young age.
Saturday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Dec. 20, 2020.
Participants can complete the 5K whenever they choose.
