Girls On The Run Of Southeast Tennessee Will Host 5K Event On May 6

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee will host its 5K event on Sunday, May 6 at the Tennessee River Park Shelter #4, 4301 Amnicola Hwy. in Chattanooga.

Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, youth development program that uses running games and discussions to teach life skills to girls in third to eghth grade. During the ten-week program, girls participate in lessons that foster confidence, build peer connections and encourage community service, while they prepare for an end-of-season celebratory 5K event.

Participation in the 5K event on May 6 is open to the public and all proceeds from the event will benefit Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee, which serves the Cleveland and Chattanooga area. The race is an out-and-back 3.1 mile course along the Tennessee River. Last season’s 5K event brought together 175 participants, including program participants, their family and friends and community members. Registration cost is $25 and includes an event shirt for all online registrations received by May 2.  

The event will begin at 2 p.m. on May 6 and early arrival is suggested. For more information about the event, how to register and volunteer opportunities, visit http://www.girlsontherunsetn.org.
