GIRLS ON THE RUN LAS VEGAS TO HOST 2020 SPRING 5K ON SUNDAY, MAY 3 AT UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, LAS VEGAS
The Las Vegas community is invited to enjoy fresh air with the whole family by participating in the Girls on the Run Las Vegas (GOTR LV) seasonal Spring 5K presented by United Way of Southern Nevada/ Women United. The event will be held on Sunday, May 3 at the University of Las Vegas (UNLV). This season’s race will be led by nearly 500 girls from dozens of sites around the valley, as well as hundreds of running buddies and community runners. The celebratory Spring 5K concludes the 2020 GOTR LV season and is open to community runners.
Each year, GOTR LV hosts two 5K events, gathering hundreds of girls in grades 3 through 8 from schools around Clark County to accomplish one common goal—to be healthy, confident and joyful. Each girl is paired with an adult Running Buddy who runs alongside them during the 5K. This non-competitive event marks the conclusion of a season-long, experienced-based curriculum designed to develop confidence, friendship, strength and emotional and spiritual health in young girls—all while integrating running. The program provides participants with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age.
Girls currently participating in Spring Season 2020 GOTR LV program are already registered to run the 5K. Anyone can register as a community runner if they are not registered as a Running Buddy or affiliated with a current GOTR LV program participant. This race is stroller- and family-friendly.
