Opportunity Details

EmBe 5K

As our GOTR girls, coaches and families from across our area come together to achieve their goals on 5K day, they will be depending on volunteers like you to help them shine! 

Each Girls on the Run season ends with a joyful and fun non-competitive 5K. The EmBe 5K celebrates and reinforces important lessons. It’s the capstone achievement for participating in the program and gives them a tangible sense of healthy goal setting and success. Our 5Ks will be on Sunday, November 15th at the W.H. Lyons Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls.

Due to COVID-19, our 5K will have a few changes! We will be running two different races -- both will have music, warm-ups, medals and post-race snacks. Each GOTR team will be assigned a time they will run their 5K race. We will be practicing social distancing and proper hygiene to ensure all our participants stay safe, healthy and have a wonderful race day experience! Our in-person event is limited to our GOTR participants, coaches/volunteers and families.

Our two 5K races will begin at  1:00pm and 3:00pm. We ask all our volunteers to commit to helping during our entire event. We ask that you arrive around 12:30pm on November 15th. Our races should be done by 4:30pm (if not earlier).

We are looking for help with the following tasks. Please note that we may ask our 5K event volunteers to do multiple jobs. There will be in a place in the registration to specify your what job interests you.

Event Set Up: unload vehicles, set up finish line, set up water table

Event Take Down:  assist in tear down and general clean up of the complex

Finish Line Assistance and Medals:  direct runners away from the finish line to the water table; put a medal around the neck and congratulate each young girl participating  in Girls on the Run.

5K Route Helpers:  stand at key locations to assist runners in going the correct direction and encouraging them along the course

 Sag Walkers: walking at the end of the line, to make sure all kids are being encouraged and no one is left behind

Check In & T-Shirt Sales: check in Support Runners and assist with t-shirt pick and sales.
