7:30 AM - 1:30 PM on Saturday, April 25
The Girls on the Run 5K presented by Assurant is happening at Cheney Stadium on Saturday, April 25th!
Proceeds from the 5K fund Girls on the Run of Atlanta Scholarships. This season alone, 68% of our girls are receiving financial assistance. We believe that the program is for all girls and never want to turn a girl away because of her families’ inability to pay. We also offer a pair of running shoes and sports bras to families who qualify for free/reduced lunch, as well as a free 5K entry to a girls’ 5K Running Buddy in order to eliminate barriers to participating in the program. All the proceeds from the race will go toward funding the following season’s financial assistance.

At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
