A Running Buddy is any trusted adult 16+, who can run/walk alongside their girl and cheer her on through this day of accomplishment. A running buddy can be a parent, grandparent, uncle, teacher, family, friend, favorite babysitter - anyone 16+ your girl knows and trusts!

Comming Soon


Free Parking will be available at Parking Field #1


This is an important day for our girls and the 5K will be held rain or shine. Ultimately, we invite you to make the best decision for you and your participant. Should outside conditions become unsafe, we will notify participants through email and social media as soon as possible, and you can also visit our Facebook page for updates.


This is a non-competitive event and we encourage all runners to go their “happy pace.” To keep the course clear for all, we ask slower runners and walkers to stay to the right, leaving room for other runners to pass. 

Pets are not allowed on the run course or in the start/finish areas. We have a large number of youth attending our event, for everyone's safety, please leave pets at home. 


Will be posted soon.


Be sure to tell all your friends and colleagues that you are participating in the GOTR 5K! Additionally, be sure to become a fan of GOTR Hudson Valley on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with all the important details.  

Volunteers are an integral part of making our 5K celebration a success! 
All volunteer shifts are from 8 - 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 16, 2024.  You will be given a GOTR lanyard when checking in that morning and they are asked to wear it at all times. Additionally, volunteers have the option of receiving a GOTR volunteer t-shirt.  If you already have a GOTR lime green volunteer shirt, please wear it to the event and skip the t-shirt size field below. Volunteers are needed in the following areas:

  • Registration
