Girls on the Run Rio Grande 5k

  • National Hispanic Cultural Center 1701 4th Street Southwest Albuquerque, NM, 87102 United States (map)

Join us at our ABQ Involved Inspiration Station at this year’s Girls on the Run 5K! Our crew will paint our faces, wear silly clothes, make banners and posters with encouraging messages, act crazy, scream, cheer, play music - anything to make these amazing girls as they run their 5K! Bring your smiles and cheers to encourage the girls to keep running!  

Volunteers should check in at 8:00am at the GOTR space at the race and we will go to our assigned station together. Please provide your cell phone number with your sign-up so that we can text you location info on the morning of the race.

Girls on the Run inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. This celebratory 5K event is the culmination of the program.

For this event, each girl participating in the program runs with an adult Running Buddy. If you would like to volunteer to be a Running Buddy, please sign up directly with GOTR here:
