At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
Everyone needs to come to packet pickup - GOTR participants, running buddies, coaches, and community runners! This is where you will receive your race bib and 5k shirt. GOTR participants should wear their GOTR program shirt for the 5k, not the 5k shirt. Girls unable to make it to packet pickup will receive their race bib and 5k shirt from their coach on race morning. All other registered runners unable to come to packet pickup will need to get their race bib and 5k shirt on race morning from the Registration table.
Packet pick-up information is as follows:
Friday, May 3rd - Fleet Feet Sports - 4:00 -7:00 pm
1254 E Republic Rd, Springfield, MO 65804
Saturday, May 4th - Missouri State University - 8:30 am - 9:30 am

ARE THERE AID STATIONS AVAILABLE?
An Aid station will be available on the course. Runners are encouraged to bring water bottles along on the course. Additional water and snacks will be available at the finish line.
CAN I BRING MY DOG OR PET?
For safety, all furry friends are not allowed on the course or at the event, so please leave all pets at home on 5K day! All pets will be asked to return to the pet owner's vehicle if spotted at the event.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
Parking is available in Lot 22 Missouri State University at the corner of National and Grand. Then use the tunnel and cross over to campus! We will have volunteers there to make sure you get to the right location!
