Girls on the Run 5k

Thank you for helping us finish the spring season strong! See you in the fall!


A Community Run Benefiting the Girls on the Run Scholarship Fund

Anytime between May 15 - May 31, 2021
5k / 3.1 miles – your place, your pace!


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 hold our GOTR-STL Spring 5K in a virtual format in order to protect the safety of our participants and the community. 

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, walk, skip, dance, roll... your place, your pace for 3.1 miles anytime between May 15 and May 31, 2021.  

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.
