Sponsorship Opportunities

The Girls on the Run 5k is a critical piece of the Girls on the Run program; an example of healthy goal setting and achievement for all of our strong girls. The event brings together all local Girls on the Run families for a positive, girl-centered run.

The Fall 2017 Girls on the Run 5k will take place December 2nd and 3rd with an expected two-day attendance of over 7,000. Sponsorship levels include options for digital logo placement, event area sponsorship, employee engagement, and much much more.

Fall 2017 5k Sponsorship  

Color Corrals + Waves

In order to provide the safest and most enjoyable event experience and to allow for plenty of space on the race courses, the 5k start at both events will be divided into waves of participants based on color corral assignments. 

Color Corral Assignments 

Teams are organized in alphabetical order by program site names. 

The color corrals are intended to be meeting points for teams prior to the start of the 5k, but they are also great meeting spots for families to reunite after the 5k has ended!
