5K Registration will open on February 1, 2015! The link to 5K registration will be posted here!

The 12th Annual Girls on the Run 5K is our annual community fun run/walk that is also the culminating event for our more than 1,700 Girls on the Run and Girls on Track program participants! During the course of our ten-week programs, girls learn about self-respect and healthy living while training for the 5K with the help of their incredible volunteer coaches.

The 5K is open to EVERYONE in the community: men, women, girls and boys, runners and walkers. All proceeds benefit Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley. The event is a non-competitive, non-timed event. For safety reasons, we DO NOT allow dogs, in-line skates, skateboards, etc. on the course or at the venue. Stollers are allowed but MUST start at the back. This year we expect more than 4,500 runners and walkers with more than 2,500 spectators cheering them along our beautiful course in and around Vasona Park!

Registration Information:

Online registration will open on Sunday, February 1, 2015.
