Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT DO THE GIRLS WEAR?

Please be sure that your GOTR girl is wearing her 5K Girls on the Run tee-shirt, running shoes, and comfortable running clothes. Check with your team's coaches for any specific plans for your Girl on the Run and her team.

Are there aid stations available?

Water will be available at the start. Two Aid stations will be available on the course. Each participant should plan to take no more than two servings of water at each Aid Station. Runners are also encouraged to bring water bottles along on the course. Additional water and snacks will be available at the finish line.

Where should I park?

Parking maps and information coming soon.

WHERE DO THE GIRLS MEET THEIR TEAM?

The staging area on Calder Plaza will be a secure drop off area. Think of the entire plaza as the girl's "Locker Room." An area where they can get warmed up, talk to their coaches, and generally get ready for the run. You will find your team/school flag, sign in your girl with the coaches and then head out. This will give you time to find a good viewing location. This is also the place where you will meet your daughter after the 5K. The Locker Room is not accessible by vehicle. Please park first.

WHAT TIME WILL THE EVENT FINISH?

We encourage spectators and participants to stay and cheer until all girls finish. This teaches our girls to support their teammates and practice good sportsmanship. We encourage you to celebrate with your daughter, teammates, and all the girls from across the county.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE 5K IS OVER? HOW DO I FIND MY GOTR GIRL?

Once your girl has crossed the finish line, she will be returning to her team's flag in the Locker Room (Heritage Landing). Plan to meet your GOTR girl there to sign her out with the coaches. All GOTR girls will then receive a wrist band for a visual verification that they have checked out. Girls may NOT leave directly from the course, and must have a parent/guardian check them out at their team sign. No exceptions! WHAT SHOULD I BRING? We encourage you to bring a water bottle and snacks. There are no concessions for the general public. You may also want to bring cash or credit cards to purchase items at our GOTR Shop. We encourage you to make and bring signs to show your support and enthusiasm. Don't forget your cameras and video recording devices. We love when families share their photos and videos with us!
