Girls on the Run 5k – May 19, 2012 – Biltmore Park – Asheville, NC

Come out to Biltmore Park on a spring morning for a 5k and some shopping.

We look forward to seeing you at our spring 5K on Saturday, May 19th. The 5K Course Map and Staging Area map can be found here. We have lots of fun activities planned starting at 9am and Biltmore Park offers dining, movies, and shops post-event, so plan to spend the day!

We are a curriculum-based, life-enhancing, character-development program serving girls in the 3rd through 8th grades in Western North Carolina.

Our mission: “We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.”

Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 mile) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community. Our current 14-county service area includes: Buncombe, Cherokee, Clay, Jackson, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey counties.
