Candy Cane Dash

Join us and help celebrate Girls on the Run of Frederick County by participating in our Third Annual Candy Cane Dash!  Our event is to celebrate our amazing girls,  and to help fundraise to provide scholarships and offset program costs.  Girls, Boys, Men, and Women of all ages and abilities are invited to run in the events.  REGISTER NOW

Runners, walkers and “skippers” of all ages and abilities are invited to participate in the 5k and 1K fun run in Baker Park.   We will have fun with music, food and prizes.  We will be giving awards again based on some characteristics that are embraced by the Girls on the Run mission – fun and enthusiasm!  Awards include: Best Costume, Biggest Smile, Snazziest Socks/Tights, Best GOTR spirit.

Benefits:  Running with awesome families who support Girls on the Run.  Prizes for GOTR spirit (see above).  Candy Canes.  T-shirt ( to the first 200 5K participants registered before 11/16/14).  Don’t underestimate the snazziness of the T-shirt.  Last year we had many members who were quite disappointed that they did not get the T-shirt.
