Girls on the Run Spring 5K Walk/Run

The Girls on the Run (GOTR) spring 5K Walk/Run will be held on May 20 for Lancaster and Berks Counties. GOTR of Lancaster County will be held at 9 a.m., at Franklin and Marshall University, Sponaugle-Williamson Field. GOTR of Berks County will be held at 9:30 a.m., at Penn State Berks Campus. 

The GOTR 5K celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the 12-week GOTR curriculum, in which hundreds of girls celebrate the completion of the program by participating with family, friends and members of their communities. 

GOTR is a life-changing program for girls in third through eighth grades, with a mission to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The 24 GOTR lessons combine training for a 5k run/walk event with lessons that inspire girls to be independent thinkers, enhance their problem-solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community. Full and partial sponsorships for participating girls are funded in part by local sponsors.
