Girls on the Run 5k

A Community Run Benefiting the Girls on the Run Scholarship Fund

Saturday, May 9, 2020
1 Mile Fun Run or 5k Run – anytime, anywhere

Join us for the Girls on the Run 5k...Virtually!

Although no longer in-person, the GOTR-STL 5k is still happening in our community - for our girls, for our families and for all of those who love Girls on the Run!

In recognizing our responsibility to be intentional in our decision making, we are following the recommendations of the City of St. Louis Department of Health and the advice of the CDC regarding large events and have made the decision to transition our GOTR-STL Spring 5K on May 9, 2020 from an in-person to virtual format in order to protect the safety of our participants and the community. We are still committed as an organization to finishing our GOTR season virtually with our 3,500 girls and help equip them to navigate these uncertain times with more confidence and strength.

We look forward to your being part of the GOTR-STL Virtual 5k, just like our Girls on the Run! As our Girls on the Run learn, forward is a pace and we think that is definitely a pace we can help set for our community and world! Thank you for your support!


Our Spring 5k takes place virtually this season.  Run anytime, anywhere between now and May 9, 2020.   Our friends at Big River Race Management have provided some recommended routes in common areas.  Want to run your virtual 5K in your own neighborhood? Search for mapped runs (routes or tracks) or map your own route courtesy of USA Track & Field.
