Due to COVID-19, this year’s annual Girls on the Run of South Central Wisconsin Fall 5K run will be virtual.
The virtual 5K, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 7, will be in lieu of the in-person event that was originally scheduled to be held in Waunakee.
Christine Benedict, Executive Director for Girls on the Run of South Central Wisconsin, said fall programming is being offered for virtual teams and small, socially distanced in-person teams. The event celebrates the accomplishments of the 400 local girls participating in Girls on the Run this fall.
The official kickoff for the virtual event will be at 9 a.m. on Nov. 7, and Girls on the Run encourages participants to share on social media how they are independently completing a 3.1-mile trek. Registrants will receive a T-shirt, personalized bib, commemorative 15th anniversary medal and more.
