Girls on the Run of Western Colorado
Girls on the Run of Western Colorado (GOTR) will host a Fall Durango 5k on Nov. 6 at Three Springs Durango Real Estate, located at 175 Mercado St., Durango, Colo. The 5K begins at 11 a.m.
GOTR is a physical, activity-based, positive youth development program that uses fun running games and dynamic discussions to teach life skills to girls in third through eighth grade. During the program, girls participate in lessons that foster confidence, build peer connections and encourage community service while they prepare for an end-of-season celebratory 5k event.
Participation in the Fall Durango 5k is open to the public and all proceeds from the event will benefit GOTR. After a year of social distancing, we are thrilled to be hosting this in-person event.
The cost for the Fall Durango 5K is $25 by Nov. 3 and $35 for day-of registration. The first 150 registered participants will receive GOTR-branded sunglasses.
