EmBe has a rich tradition of inspiring girls of all ages and stages to understand their voice matters. The mission of EmBe and Girls on the Run is to build confidence in young girls to pursue their dreams and become future leaders in our community.

An integral part of the Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole curriculum, the 5K celebrates and reinforces important lessons while showing the support of the entire community. The 5K is the capstone achievement for those participating in our programs and gives them a tangible sense of healthy goal setting and success. Participants train all season to complete a 5K (3.1-mile) race. The 5K is a celebration and an opportunity for each girl to literally cross the finish line!

As Girls on the Run (GOTR) girls from across our area come together to achieve their goals on 5K day, they will be depending on volunteers like you to help them shine! Our volunteers ensure that everyone is supported, no one is left behind and the event runs smoothly. We have many roles that are available to choose from. All roles are about a 2 hour commitment and take place on race day, unless specifically stated. You can see the roles, description of roles, and the time commitment on the first page of the registration.

Each season comes to an end with a joyful and fun non-competitive 5K. The EmBe 5K celebrates and reinforces important lessons. It’s the capstone achievement for participating in the program and gives them a tangible sense of healthy goal setting and success.

If you would like to run the race with your GOTR girls or run as a community member, please register for your desired race. There is a small fee for the race to help support EmBe’s programs – $15 for adults (13 years old and older) and $10 for youth (12 years old and younger). Race day information will be sent out a week before the race.
