The Asheville and WNC community is encouraged to join 600+ girls in 3rd through 8th grade from counties throughout Western North Carolina who have trained with volunteer coaches at 42 sites for the past 10 weeks as part of the Girls on the Run International program, which combines running with lessons about important topics such as preventing bullying and processing emotions. The 5k is the culminating event of the spring season.

The 5K is family-friendly, non-competitive and open to the public. Runners and walkers of all ages and levels are encouraged to register. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Girls on the Run of Western North Carolina scholarship fund, which aims to make the non-profit’s program accessible to all girls in the community, regardless of their ability to pay the registration fee.
