UVA Club of Washington DC: Buddy Runner for the DC Girls on the Run 5K

Sunday, November 18 @ 9:00 am

All alumni, parents, and friends are invited to be a buddy runner for the DC Girls on the Run 5K! Girls on the Run teaches elementary and middle school girls fitness along with confidence, kindness, and self-care, culminating with a Community 5K at the end of their 12-week program.

As a buddy runner, you will be supporting a child (typically in grades 3-5) who does not have a person to encourage them through the race. Don’t worry about being super fit as most of the girls are new to running and will take it slow. You do, however, need to be committed to making the race. You will be assigned a runner in the days before the race, and she will be counting on you!

Register to be a 5K community buddy runner here before Monday, November 12th. After the race, join fellow DC Hoos at Supreme Core Cidery for a special brunch that includes an all-you-can-eat taco bar and flight of ciders.
