Who are 5k Superstars?
5k Superstars are individuals running the Girls on the Run St. Louis 5k (Fall and/or Spring season) and want to also raise money for the Girls on the Run St. Louis scholarship fund. 5k Superstars believe in the transformative power of the Girls on the Run program and want to share the importance of the program with their family, friends and community in hopes they will support the program, too.
5k Superstars have no fundraising minimum and are provided individual, customizable fundraising pages to share their connection to Girls on the Run.
In addition, there are a few fundraising incentives to make their 5k race experience even more memorable:
- Raise $50, receive a discount code for a free 5k entry for the current season
- Raise $100, receive an official 5k Superstar race bib
- Raise $175, receive a "5k in a box" (a box full of superstar goodies for race day!)
Please note that there will be various formats for you to complete the Girls on the Run St. Louis 5k virtually this Fall 2020 season. To earn incentives, fundraising goals need to be met by Friday, October 23, 2020. All incentives will be mailed the week of October 26th so that they can be used when completing your modified 5k celebration in early-mid November.
Funds raised support our scholarship fund, allowing every girl to be a Girl on the Run. Each $175 raised provides a scholarship for one girl to be able to participate in our program.

*Race registration will open in September 2020. Please note the following regarding race entry:
Participation as a 5k Superstar does not include race entry. If you are unable to meet the $50 incentive goal for a free race entry by the deadline, you must still register for the 5k (with the registration fee) if you plan to run.
Girls in the program, head, assistant and practice partner coaches and site liaisons are already registered for the 5k. No refunds will be given for duplicate registrations; however, you may transfer a duplicate registration to another person.
If you have any questions, please contact Courtney Dendy, Development Coordinator or call our office at (314) 862-6266.
