Event Description:

Join us at the Girls on the Run 5k on Saturday, May 12th at Soldiers' Memorial in Downtown St. Louis! 

The Girls on the Run St. Louis 5k is the largest timed 5k race in Missouri and benefits the scholarship fund, ensuring all girls have access to this life changing program.

Since 2002, Girls on the Run St. Louis has empowered more than 45,000 girls to realize their limitless potential. The program combines training for a 5K (3.1 mile) running event with lessons that inspire girls in 3rd through 8th grade to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions.  At the conclusion of each season, girls complete a 5k running event giving them a tangible sense of achievement and a framework for setting, and achieving life goals.  The result – making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.

Girls use these skills today, in 20, 30 and even 50 years from now as adult women.  After all, these are the female leaders of tomorrow!
