At Girls on the Run (GOTR), we believe that running makes you feel good - happy, healthy, and filled with possibility! The Squeez’d Girls on the Run-Chicago 5k presented by Mariano’s is the perfect opportunity to discover your potential and find out why "Girls on the Run is so much fun! Come out to participate in GOTR cheers, face painting, and tiara decorating, in addition to a great post-5k festival that features food, activities, and sponsor giveaways!
The Squeez’d Girls on the Run 5k is a family-friendly event and fun run. It is open to the public. Girls who are currently participating in the program are already registered for the 5k. All finishers receive “woo hoos!” and the admiration of numerous spectators, but runners are not timed nor are awards given. Everyone who crosses the finish line is a winner.
This event would not be possible without the help of amazing volunteers who believe in our mission and show up to support our girls. This spring, we will host three 5k events that need more than 300 volunteers to ensure our girls have an unforgettable experience. Whether you run, cheer, or volunteer, we would love to have you involved!
