We fully support sharing race day excitement with a friend, which is why each of our program participants run the Girls on the Run 5k with a Running Buddy! This is a fun way to support our girls and be involved with the 5k.

This is ideal for those who would like to coach, but do not have the time to commit to coaching an entire season. Once you commit to being a Running Buddy and register for the 5k, you will be asked permission for a background check and then will be paired with a school. Your job is to complete the 5k with the team and provide support, encouragement, and FUN throughout the 3.1 miles. We do request that you either visit one practice to meet the girls, or send two postcards to introduce yourself prior to the race.

If you’re interested in this opportunity, please email Alicia Henderson in late October to be paired with an amazing team of girls for our 5k race on December 9th!
