Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the 5k run take?

Finishing times vary of course, but our fastest runners will complete the run in about 25 minutes. Most runners will fall between 30-45 minutes We will be sweeping the course at one hour from the starting time to ensure all runners have returned to the starting area. We encourage everyone to stay and cheer on ALL of the girls!

Are there aid stations available?

Two Aid stations will be available on the course. Each participant should plan to take no more than two servings of water at each Aid Station. Runners are also encouraged to bring water bottles along on the course. Additional water and snacks will be available at the finish line.

Where should I park?

The event will take place at the Hopkinton High School, located at 90 Hayden Rowe St. Parking is available in the High School Parking lot. Car pooling is encouraged.

Can I bring my dog or pet?

For safety, all furry friends are not allowed on the course or at the event, so please leave all pets at home on 5K day! All pets will be asked to return to the pet owner's vehicle if spotted at the event.

Volunteer Registration

This event would not be possible without the help of amazing volunteers who believe in our mission and show up to support our girls. Over 150 volunteers are needed to put on our best 5k yet! Whatever your special skills and talents, we have a role for everyone.

Volunteers will be asked to check in as early as 7:00 am on race day and to stay until about noon. Roles will be assigned and communicated about a week before the race. We will do our best to put you into your 1st or 2nd preference, but we ask that you be flexible if needed.
