FALL FUN ON THE RUN

 

Meeting in small groups and following social distancing guidelines, Girls on the Run and Trail Blazers are BACK this fall! Teams will meet with friends and coaches at various locations throughout Whatcom County. Each team will run its own 5K and celebrate during the last week of practice. Participants will receive a t-shirt and finisher's medal for the 5K at the end of the season.


 
We will be following the Washington State Safe Start plan, which will include mask wearing, physical distancing and no sharing of materials. 

Girls on the Run

Following social distancing guidelines, Girls on the Run will be meeting in small groups at local parks this fall to play games and explore trails.  Over the course of the eight-week program, girls in 3rd–6th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their world.

The fall season culminates with the girls positively impacting their community through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k with their team. Participants will receive a Girls on the Run t-shirt and finisher’s medal for the 5K at the end of the season. We will be following the Washington State Safe Start plan, which will include mask wearing, physical distancing and no sharing of materials.

Trail Blazers will explore beaches and forests, make friends, challenge ourselves, build and clean up trails and get dirty! We will meet at a different trail each week.
