COVID-19 Precautions: EmBe activities are being assessed on a case-by-case basis. We recognize that programs and events could be impacted with short notice and are committed to keeping you updated here.

An integral part of the Girls on the Run, Heart & Sole and Let Me Run curriculum, the 5K celebrates and reinforces important lessons while showing girls and boys 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. The girls and boys train all season to complete a 5K (3.1-mile) race. The 5K is a celebration and an opportunity for each child to literally cross the finish line!

The EmBe 5K will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds. Registration opens at 8:30am with the run/walk starting at 10:00am.

Adult (13+) $20 (includes race shirt – size guaranteed if registered by April 17) 
Youth (12 and Under) $15 (includes race shirt – size guaranteed if registered by April 17)

Thank you to our 2020 sponsors!

Volunteers make our 5K an incredible event. Our volunteers run the Happy Hair station, sell t-shirts, walk the route to ensure everyone is supported and no one is left behind, hand out medals at the finish line and EVERYTHING in between!
