Can INSPIRATION Run and have Fun? Yes YOU Can!
This is a "fun run" that celebrates the achievements of the girls in the Girls on the Run program this season.
Girls run, skip, walk... Have FUN! None of the GOTR participants are timed for this event.
~ Permission slip Deadline: February 25 All girls who turned in their signed permission slips by February 25 are already registered for this event at no extra charge to the families. Running buddies are registered at no extra cost, too. However, you still must "check-in" the day of the event to get your bib.
~ No late permission slips will be accepted by your coaches. Miss the permission slip deadline? On race day, turn in your permission slip with $40 at the GOTR "check in" table to participate.
~ Girls wear their GOTR program t-shirts to reflect the unity of bringing all of the girls together from around the south Florida area to one event.
~ Running Buddies wear their GOTR t-shirts
~ Family members, friends, neighbors and community members are welcome to join in the run or cheer the girls on along the course. Make posters to cheer on your girl! Make some noise as she crosses the finish line!
~There are special awards for 3 deserving GOTR girls nominated by their coaches. Other activities and giveaways help make the event even more fun.
~Of course, every girl who crosses the finish line receives a finisher medal. Running Buddies do, too.
