Girls on the Run® of Northern Virginia (GOTR NOVA) is thrilled to announce the overwhelming success of their recent 5K events held at Fair Oaks Mall on Saturday, May 18, and in Pentagon City on Sunday, May 19. With thousands of participants, volunteers, and supporters coming together, the events showcased the spirit of community, empowerment, and health.

Participants, alongside their families, friends, and coaches, ran, walked, and cheered their way through the courses, celebrating not just physical achievement, but the growth in confidence, character, and connection fostered through the GOTR program.

Executive Director of GOTR NOVA Caroline Woods expressed heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved: “The success of our 5K events is a testament to the incredible community support we receive and the hard work of our participants and volunteers. These events are not races; they are a celebration of the unique spirit and determination of every participant involved in our program. We are proud to witness the confidence and joy radiating from each of them as they cross the finish line.”

The 5K event serves as the culmination of the Girls on the Run program, where girls have been preparing both physically and emotionally for this significant milestone. It’s not only an opportunity for the girls to showcase their progress, but also a chance for the community to come together in support of their growth and achievements.

Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Through a unique blend of physical activity, interactive lessons, and positive reinforcement, Girls on the Run empowers girls to develop essential skills for a lifetime of self-confidence and healthy living.

As the spring 2024 season comes to a close, GOTR NOVA is working hard to prepare for the fall 2024 season. Program registration is set to open in August with the season starting in September. Learn more about GOTR programming at gotrnova.org.
