Girls on The Run Spring 5k
April 27 @ 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that uses fun running games and dynamic discussions to teach life skills to girls in 3rd to 8th grade. During the ten-week program, girls participate in lessons that foster confidence, build peer connections and encourage community service while they prepare for an end-of-season celebratory 5K event. Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa will host its Spring 5K event on April 27th for the first time ever at the brand new Riverfront Crossings Park in Iowa City behind Big Grove Brewery. With this new dynamic approach, the young girls, community runners, and all of the race supporters will be able to see a Girls on the Run course that has never been seen before. The course is not the only thing new for the Girls on the Run Spring 5K this year. This year there will be a post race celebration at Big Grove Brewery to reward all of the runners, supporters, and overall involvement that supported the organization.
