A signature component of the GOTR 5K is "THE RUNNING BUDDY."
~ Running Buddies are 16 years old or older on the day of the 5K. They can be mom, dad, brother, sister, cousin, aunt, uncle, babysitter… you get the picture. 😊
~ The role of the Running Buddy is to stay with their girl from start to finish to encourage her and be there to help her celebrate this wonderful achievement.
~ Requirements: Running Buddies must be able to stay with their girl throughout the run. **We do NOT REQUIRE every girl to have a Running Buddy, but it is encouraged if a girl is feeling nervous about the event. If your girl doesn't have a Running Buddy - but would like one, we can pair her up with a Community Running Buddy - this is someone who will be able to stay with your girl the entire time (this person will be 18 years old or older and will have cleared a background check).
