Cox North Springfield, MO


 It was with the full intention of having a live race that we launched this year’s event.

Unfortunately, due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in our area in the last three weeks, with no downturn in sight, the decision has been made to go fully virtual.

The safety of our runners and community is the utmost priority of the CoxHealth Foundation and our sponsors and supporters.

Already registered? The drive up packet pick-up will be held Thursday, July 22 at the entry of the Meyer Center from 3-6 PM. Your shirt, medal and shoe light will be waiting!

Still want to run? Join us virtually by signing up!

Please complete your virtual race by Friday, August 6th and post your name, age and time on the CoxHealth Foundation website at this link: https://www.coxhealthfoundation.com/event/girls-just-wanna-run-presented-by-ricks-automotive/ or find it under the Foundation’s website Special Events tab for “Girls Just Wanna Run.”

Awards will be mailed to the top winners in each age group the following week. Don’t forget to post your “finish line” photo and tag us at the CoxHealth Foundation and hash tag #GJWR2021.
