Girls Running the World Daisy Dash & 5k
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
We’ve decided to add twice as much fun this year with a second run! The first will be held at the Schenectady Central Park on April 26th. For those who have been looking to participate from the North, the bonus run will take place at the Clinton County Fairgrounds May 9th.
Something new for this year will be the addition of a “Stuff the Truck” event during the days of the run where we will collect food and items to benefit and help the Regional Food Bank of NENY which supplies all of the counties we serve.
Looking to collect food for the Food Bank? Not sure what items are needed most? Check out these Food Drive theme bags and pick the ones that suit your fancy!
Once again the race will be non-competitive in nature to allow for everyone to complete the 5K portion at their own pace but we will have the time clock on hand for those who are serious runners. Instead of the training guides for each grade level there are “Couch to 5k” materials to help you and a 10 week sample training chart to help you along the way.
Visit the Couch to 5k website for more helpful tips to get you motivated and ready to fun.
GSNENY staff will be on hand to cheer you on and we’ll make certain to have music and warm-up activities ready to get you revved up to run!
