The Girls on the Run Fall 5k is an event unlike any other. Join us Saturday November 11, 2017 along with 1,500 3rd - 8th grade girls as they complete their celebratory season ending 5k fun run. Whether it's your first race or your fastest, we hope you will join us for this extraordinary celebration of health, wellness and girl power! Our 5k is a non-competitive event that will bring a smile to your face! Runners of all abilities are welcome to join us to participate in the 5k. Additionally, you can volunteer to be a Sparkle Runner. Sparkle Runners are the official 'party starter' out on the course. On the morning of the race, they may be paired with a team or simply bring the fun to all the girls along the route. Sparkle Runners must be female, 18+, and submit a background check, see event website for additional details.
The 5k course will start and finish along the beautiful Mississippi River at Harriet Island in Saint Paul, the course will be on run on trails and streets surrounding the park. See event website for detailed course map
