Girls on the Run 5k

Join Girls on the Run the morning of Taste of Arlington for a 5K healthy way to kick-off this year’s Taste of Arlington festival. Runners of all ages are welcome to participate in the 5K and there will be special awards for family finishers.

The Girls on the Run 5K invites all community runners to participate with thousands of Northern Virginia girls who are celebrating the completion of the Girls on the Run program. A curriculum-based program, Girls on the Run fosters a respect for healthy living while celebrating each girl! All runners receive a technical t-shirt (tutus are optional), a finisher’s medal, and the promise of the most fun they’ve ever had on a 5K course. Running through the beautiful streets of Ballston, runners will pass by inspiring cheer stations, be recognized by hundreds of enthusiastic spectators, and finish at Taste of Arlington!
