Girls on the Run teams from Rockland, Putnam and Westchester will come together for a celebratory, non-competitive 5K Glow Run. The GOTR 5K is open to the community and welcomes all levels and abilities. Our event is NOT a race. Its a celebration of everyone's accomplishments and a perfect 5K to set a goal to work towards! Great place to make memories with your friends and family, or a solo gratitude moment!


Every girl must have a registered 5K Buddy to accompany her on race day. A 5K Buddy is any trusted adult 16+, who can run/walk alongside their girl and cheer her on through this day of accomplishment. All 5K Buddies, parents and friends participating in the 5K must register. The registration fee is $25 thru May 1st, $30 May 2 - May 30th and $35 on race day. Register here! Registration is open to the public. GOTR participants and coaches are automatically registered for the 5K!

EVERYONE is invited to participate! So sign up the whole family and be active together.

Your race entry is not refundable. Just like a concert ticket or sporting event, your race entry is not refundable. You can transfer your entry to a friend. Thanks for understanding!
