Event Description:

Join NOW 96.3 for the virtual Girls on the Run 5k this Fall on November 14th!

Virtual runners will complete the 3.1 mile distance in whatever environment makes the most sense for them during this timeof social distancing (i.e. neighborhood loop, in a park, on a treadmill, etc.). Each runner will receive a personalized race bib, certificate of 5k completion, a medal mailed to home addresses, and other sponsor benefits. Although it will no longer be in-person, Girls on the Run is still very much happening in the St. Louis community - for girls, for families, and for those who love Girls on the Run!

Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that empowers girls of all backgrounds in 3rd - 8th grade to develop the physical, social and psychological competencies to prevent unhealthy behaviors and advance positive health outcomes. The evidence-based curriculum combines training for a 5k event with interactive lessons that include self-esteem enhancing activities and uplifting workouts aimed to develop the whole girl - physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. The result – giving girls a tangible sense of achievement and a framework for setting, and achieving, life goals.

Founded in 2002, Girls on the Run St. Louis serves more than 6,000 girls annually across 23 counties in eastern Missouri and western Illinois (over 65,000 girls since its founding in 2002) The Girls on the Run program, the only physical activity-based, positive youth development certified program in the St. Louis region, is delivered each fall and spring season at over 400 participating school and community sites. The bi-annual 5k events benefit the Girls on the Run St. Louis scholarship fund and are the largest timed 5k events in Missouri and the tenth largest in the United States.
