Spring 5K Race

Each season participants in the Girls on the Run program work towards the goal of running or walking a 5K at the end of the season.  Girls on the Run Treasure Valley has partnered with the East Junior High Hornet Run for many years as our spring community 5K.   Not only do we encourage the girls to participate in this event, but we also encourage family and friends to join as running buddies.
