Nov 11, 2017 (Past event)
Join us for the 3rd Annual Girls on the Run 5k in Frisco! This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of a 10 week program that is open to girls in 3rd through 5th grade. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.
You don’t have a family member in the Girls on the Run Program? Don’t fret; this race IS open to the public and offers a relatively flat course with spectacular views of the Dillon Reservoir, Buffalo Mountain and Mount Royal!
Race Details: Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 11:00am at Summit Middle School. The course will be an out-and-back on the Summit County Recreation Path. Due to the anticipated high number of racers, we will start the race in waves. Waves will be assigned by school; if you’re not affiliated with a school then jump in any wave you’d like! This is a fun run and the race will not be timed.
Please leave your dogs at home; this is a no pet event. Strollers are welcome, however, you must start at the end of the last wave. No exceptions.
