Girls on the Run - Chicago 5k
This year’s run will be part of a morning full of fun activities! The USATF certified 5k course (3.1 mile) is an out and back course that runs along the Chicago lakefront, and finishes with a post-race festival that features great food, games, and giveaways. Post-race entertainment includes face painting and tiara decorating.
The Girls on the Run 5k is a CARA registered fun run. All finishers will receive lots of cheers and the admiration of all spectators, but runners will not be timed, nor will results be posted. No awards will be given. Everyone who crosses the finish line is a winner!
JUST A REMINDER, ALL GIRLS WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE GIRLS ON THE RUN PROGRAM ARE AUTOMATICALLY REGISTERED FOR THE EVENT!
Post Race Celebration
Stay after the race for the celebration! There will be great food, interactive sponsor booths to visit, and music. We’ll have games and giveaways, face painting, tiara decorating, photo booths and more!
