What is a Celebratory 5K?
Our 5k event is a family friendly, untimed run/walk. No clock, no winners, no pressure! This is a double loop 3.1 mile course that goes around the perimeter of the Fairground. Course Map coming soon! We will kick off the day with fun activities including our happy hair station, face painting, hula hoops and music. Runners are encouraged to show some GOTR spirit which may include tutus, silly socks, super hero capes and anything else that puts on smile on your face.
The Celebratory 5k is rain/snow or shine. The event will not be rescheduled.
RUNNING BUDDY INFORMATION:
Each GOTR girl is encouraged to run the Celebratory 5k with a running buddy. A running buddy can be a family member, friend or volunteer who runs with a GOTR girl at the 5k – encouraging her, cheering her on and sharing in her excitement along the way! We welcome families to assign a running buddy to complete the 5k with their girl on the run! Running Buddies assigned by the family can be male or female and must be at least 16 years of age. If you do not have a Running Buddy for your daughter, we can match her up with one of her coaches or one our volunteer running buddies who are eager to join her for the 5k. GOTR Volunteer Running Buddies are at least 18 years of age and will undergo a background check.

Participant and spectator safety is first and foremost with Girls on the Run Maine. The Girls on the Run of Maine 5k will occur rain or shine. We will closely monitor weather conditions for race day, but due to rapidly changing weather we may not be able to make any official decisions regarding the race until Sunday morning. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to evaluate the situation and use their judgment regarding the weather.
The event will occur rain or shine, however, below are precautions if there is a risk of severe or inclement weather:
1) If there is a threat and/or we are having a thunderstorm at 9:15 on race morning the race will be delayed until 10:00 to allow the threat to pass.
2) Should the threat remain at 10:00 the GOTR 5k may be canceled. No refunds will be issued due to weather situations.
3) Should a storm occur while participants are on the course, they should seek cover along the course. Once the situation has passed participants should return directly to the race start/finish area.
