GOTR 5k
presented by


The Girls on the Run 5k Run is a public 5k that is open to all runners in the WNY community. It is a
family friendly, community event that strives to share the tools and inspiration for healthy living and
self-confidence from the Girls on the Run programs with our running community. All girls who are participating in the program will participate in the race. They will each be paired with a buddy runner
who is a parent or volunteer that runs and encourages them along the way.

Girls on the Run of Buffalo invites runners of all ages to come run with us, so register the whole family, invite your friends, and come run with over 1200 girls who are celebrating the completion of the Girls on the Run program.

RUNNING BUDDIES

If you are running as your daughters running buddy, please register for the 5k. You will be asked for your participants name and the school/site she attends.
