5k Information

Dear Parents and Running buddies-

This Saturday, 11/10 at 10 am, we will hold the Girls on The Run Fall Fun Run at the Sussex County Fairgrounds.  The address of the fairgrounds is 37 plains Road in Augusta. The staging area will take place in the “Richards building”.  There will be signs.

These past 2 weeks have been trying times for all of us.  We have faced many obstacles in our efforts to move ahead with our 5k. We sincerely appreciate the patience and support you have shown us.  We are working very hard to give the girls the celebration and sense of accomplishment they deserve.

The schedule for the 5k is as follows;

9am-  girls and running buddies to arrive.  Please find your head coach and check in with her.  There will be designated areas to leave any belongings you have. Proceed to the packet pick-up area and get your shirt and your bib number.  Please wear light layers so that you can slip your race shirt on over them. Immediately following, all girls are to head over to the designated Goody  Hair Station to get “blinged” up for their run.

9:30- Picture time! All Teams and coaches come together for group photo.

9:50- Group warm up.

10:00 Race Begins!

With regard to the Girls on the Run program.  Some sessions will be extending an additional day or 2 beyond the race to get in the remaining curriculum.  Please look for an email from your coach with that information.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers as well as our coaches for their dedication and support to the girls and their families.  We are 100 percent volunteer run and could not have done this without our GOTR family.

In addition, we would like to thank you, the families, and the running buddies for your commitment to these girls.

Enjoy the snow and see you on Saturday!


Warm regards

The GOTRNJN staff
