  • Wednesday, November 16, 2022
  • Salt Lake Running Co. (2454 South 700 East, Salt Lake City)
  • 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

This is for all Running Buddies and general 5K participants. Girls in the program will receive their 5K items from their coaches. Packet Pick Up will also be available the morning of the 5K. But don't wait! Lines can get long. 


The course for a 5K is 3.1 miles that takes 2 laps around Sugar House Park. 

As a reminder, this is a fun, celebratory event for our participants and not a competitive race. While our fastest 5K participants will complete the course in 25 minutes, most cross the finish line in 30-50 minutes. Everyone who participates is encouraged to walk, roll, push, run or skip at their happy pace!

First, we understand that life happens, and circumstance might make it impossible to attend.


We strongly encourage that all participants attend and complete the 5K, as it is the goal that teams are preparing for all season long! It’s the ultimate opportunity to build confidence through accomplishment. Remember, this is the first 5K event for many – including coaches, participants, friends and family members. We are in it together!

A Running Buddy is an individual designated by the council or by the parent/guardian to complete the 5K alongside a program participant during the 5K event, for the entire duration of the course.

Yes! This is encouraged! This is a great way to accomplish a goal together. 

Yes. Girls on the Run 5K events are for everyone! All participants can walk, run, push or roll safely and at their own happy pace. Designated parking spots are available.

Absolutely! Every registered participant who completes the 5K will receive a finisher medal.

Yes! Family, friends and community members outside of our program can participate in the event, but must register if they wish to participate.

Yes! As this is the highlight of the season, there will be face painting, water stations, happy hair stations and more! Of course, we’ll have merchandise for sale, too!

Free parking is available at Highland High School (northeast of Sugar House Park). Additionally, limited parking is available on side streets adjacent to the park. The park gates will be closed for the race from 8:30 a.m. to around 10:30 a.m. If you plan on parking in the park, you will not be able to drive on the course or leave the park until the last girl crosses the finish line. There will be a golf cart shuttle for those needing assistance getting to the Big Field Pavillion from the northeast corner of the park (near Highland High School).
