Dear Readers,

This is another (but not the last!) reminder that we are just two weeks away from the New Balance Girls on the Run 5K in Atlanta! The girls are excited and are running their practice 5Ks, and GOTR staff and coaches are gearing up to make this the best race ever! Here’s how the Atlanta community can get involved!

  • RUN WITH US – Register to run in this awesome race, or if you want the full experience, share your run with a GOTR girl as a running buddy. For info on becoming a running buddy, attend a Running Buddy Info Meeting Monday, November 2nd, 6:30pm at Phidippidies, Sandy Springs or Saturday, November 7th, 10am at the GOTR office.
  • SUPPORT US – By sponsoring one of the mile markers seen along the race coure, you can show your support for Girls on the Run of Atlanta and showcase your business at the same time. To purchase a mile marker contact the GOTR office at 678-992-2670.
