Frisco Girls on the Run 5K

Girls running in Girls on the Run event

Join us for the 3rd Annual Girls on the Run 5k in Frisco!  This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of a 10 week program that is open to girls in 3rd through 5th grade.  Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.  Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

You don’t have a family member in the Girls on the Run Program?  Don’t fret; this race IS open to the public and offers a relatively flat course with spectacular views of the Dillon Reservoir, Buffalo Mountain and Mount Royal!

Race Start:  Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 11:00am at Summit Middle School. The course will be an out-and-back on the Summit County Recreation Path. Due to the anticipated high number of racers, we will start the race in waves. Waves will be assigned by school; if you’re not affiliated with a school then jump in any wave you’d like!
