Race Day Information

The safety of our participants and families at our 5k is our top priority. As always, we will have plenty of volunteers to make sure this is truly a celebration for our girls.  The Valle Crucis course is entirely on a paved trail around the park.  There are multiple places to see your girl run as each participant will be making four loops around the park.

Strollers and dogs:  For the safety of all runners, we can’t allow either in this 5k.  The running path is narrow and there will be A LOT of participants! 

Getting to the Race

Arrive early to allow time to get from your car to the race start. We will have parking at both the Valle Crucis School and at the grass lot beside the park.  Access to the park from the school is over a wooden bridge behind the school.  The run starts at 9:30 a.m. so give yourself plenty of time to get settled in. We will have plenty of fun warm-up activities for the entire family!

Cancellation Policy

We will run rain or shine or snow! It may be necessary to cancel the race if road conditions are unsafe as deemed by the Department of Transportation. We will update the Girls on the Run of the High Country website and Facebook page in the case of severe weather.

We consider your race registration fee a donation to our scholarship fund. No refunds will be given even in the event of race cancellation.
