Girls on the Run® Participants Compete in 5K Run

On Saturday, December 5, teams from Central Manor, Pequea, Letort, Eshleman and Hambright Elementary Schools ran in the Girls on the Run® Winter 5K at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

Girls on the Run® is a character development program for girls in 3rd through 6th grade.  The program teaches life skills using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to build confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

The spring session of Girls on the Run® begins on March 11 ending with a 5K run at Franklin & Marshall College on May 18. Conestoga and Martic Elementary Schools will field teams for that event.
