Brattleboro- Now in its 15th year, Girls on the Run Vermont announces its annual southern Vermont 5K Run/Walk, which takes place Saturday, May 17, at 10 am, at Brattleboro Union High School. This event is the culmination of GOTRVT’s 10-week after-school program for third- to eighth-grade girls and is open to anyone who wishes to participate or attend as spectators.

Proceeds from the event benefit the scholarship fund at Girls on the Run Vermont, a nonprofit organization. This interactive educational program, delivered by over 700 volunteer coaches across Vermont, fosters a sense of self-esteem, teamwork, compassion, and community.

This year, the Girls on the Run Vermont program, along with Girls on Track for sixth- to eighth-grade girls, will reach 3,000 girls at 140 schools.

Registration for the 5K is $10 for children, $20 for adults, and $40 for a household of three or more. Online registration ends at midnight, May 15, at, where mail-in registration forms can also be downloaded and sent to 22 Browne Court, Ste. 103B, Brattleboro, VT 05301 (must be postmarked by May 11).

Day-of-event registration is from 8:30 to 9:30 am (cash or check only) and the adult fee will be $5 more.

The first 100 members of the public who submit a registration receive a free GOTR 5K T-shirt. Girls in the GOTRVT are already registered for the 5K event
