We are now just one month away from our fall race – the New Balance Girls on the Run 5K…it will take place on Sunday, November 15 at 9 a.m. at the Atlanta Youth Soccer Association’s Arizona Complex in Kirkwood. We encourage you to come out and run or volunteer and enjoy a fun family event with lots of activities for everyone.

There will be plenty of food supplied by Luna Bars, Highland Bakery, Caribou Coffee (hot cider and coffee!), Crystal Springs, Fuze Beverage and more. There will be face painting and the Goody Happy Hair Station for kids as well as interactive games provided by the title sponsor, the Atlanta Spirit. In addition, the founder of Girls on the Run, Molly Barker, will be in attendance to give some inspirational words and motivation to the runners. So there will be lots of fun for everybody that morning and the whole post race party is near/on the Arizona Soccer Fields, so bring your soccer ball and frisbee to throw around while you enjoy the morning.

Race registrations postmarked by Nov. 9 are $20, and race-day registration is $25. Register in person at: Phidippides Ansley Mall, 1544 Piedmont Ave., (404) 875-4268, or Phidippides Sandy Springs, 220 Sandy Springs Circle, (404) 255-6149.

Race day volunteers are also needed, for water stations, registration tables, post-race activities, and more! If you are interested in volunteering on race day, please visit http://www.girlsontherunatlanta.org/volunteer.
