Girls On The Run 5k Date:  June 3rd, 2018 at Cumberland Fairgrounds                197 Blanchard Rd. in Cumberland

 

There are so many summer 5ks to choose from in and around Portland that it's hard to choose which ones to sign up for. You may even end up getting overwhelmed by all the options and neglect to sign up for any, winding up on the couch in your comfy leggings, shaking your head. But not this year, baby! If you're the least bit intimidated by 5ks, find them too competitive, serious, or just plain dull, the Girls On The Run 5k is for you.

Contrary to popular belief, Girls On The Run program participants aren't the only ones who can run the race. It may mean something extra special to the girls, as the culmination of 10 weeks of diverse training and exercises focused on important themes of healthy living, but community members and their kids are encouraged to join in on the fun.

Registration is now open and kids 15 and younger cost only $15 to run. This is guaranteed to be the most inclusive, supportive, and fun environment to do a 5k. Hair dye, face painting, music and snacks will round out the day's excitement as Girls On The Run girls, designated running buddies, coaches, and community members alike join together to celebrate empowerment, healthy habits, and self confidence.
