Candy Cane Dash 5K/1K -- December 3, 2022

Girls on the Run Mid and Western Maryland


Elves of all shapes, sizes and paces are invited to the 2022 Candy Cane Dash 5K & 1K Fun Run benefitting our local Girls on the Run Council!  Our event is to celebrate our amazing GOTR girls, help fundraise to provide program scholarships, and offset program costs.  Girls, boys, men, and women of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in this 5K in beautiful Baker Park, Frederick Maryland.   It will be a wonderful celebration of a return to in-person events!  Overall awards for the top 3 male & female finishers plus 10-year age group awards for community runners (*Note-GOTR Girls with #1 bibs are not timed, thus are ineligible for any performance-based awards).
