Presented by People’s United Bank, our 2017 Girls on the Run Northern 5k is unlike any other running event. It is a community celebration of Girl Power! Our Vermont girls will have just completed the ten week spring season of the Girls on the Run/Heart & Sole empowerment program and by the day of the 5k, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race! Positive energy abounds as the girls dance to warm-up music, get their hair “happied” and faces painted, and wearing tutus and capes they gather with their teammates to hold hands and head to the starting line. Each 5k participant who crosses the finish line will be rewarded with a medal or ribbon and a little something to quench your “I DID IT!” thirst from our proud hydration sponsor, NorthCountry Federal Credit Union. With each GOTR girl proudly wearing the number “1” on her bib, our 5k is a non-competitive event that will surely bring a smile to your face!
