Welcome to the 2014 Girls on the Run-Chicago 5k Series!

The Girls on the Run 5k is a spectacle of Girl Power! The event is family-friendly, and open to the public.

The 5k Series

New for 2014 — the GOTRC 5k Series! This year we’ll be hosting three regional 5ks nearest to where the girls live instead of one large event as we’ve done in the past. Each of these events is designed to provide the girls with an opportunity to have what they want most — the chance to celebrate their achievement with family and friends, and we look forward to seeing you there. Choose your location to begin!

Don’t know which 5k you’re going to? Check out our list of 5k assignments here by school/site or by city.

In 2014, Girls on the Run-Chicago will serve more than 8,000 girls at more than 300 sites across Chicagoland, empowering them with the confidence and character they need to become strong, healthy women.
