The Girls on the Run are hosting the End of the Season 5K at Hormel Stadium in Medford, Sunday, December 8th, 2019. Registration opens at 7:00 AM and the 5K starts at 8:30 AM! This is not a timed 5K and is open to anyone interested in running with amazing teams from all over the Boston area.
The McGlynn Elementary School and the Roberts Elementary School each have 26 students on their Girls on the Run team for the fall 2019 season! The McGlynn team is led by head coach Meg Richard, Katie (Ford) Cochrane, Katie Fiumara, Isla Niezgoda, Page Buldini, Delaney Tantillo and Liz Rackley.
The Roberts team is led by head coaches Breanna Lungo-Koehn and Arianna Lungo, Kelly Shields, Courtney Nevers, Aoife Merry, Jennifer Flynn, Kathleen Preisner, Hannah O’Brien, and Leah Corrigan. Both teams have worked so hard over the past 10 weeks to get ready for their End of the Season 5k!
At each practice, the girls learn about caring, building confidence, building character, making connections and different competencies that they can carry with them in all aspects of their lives. Each practice has a different theme that is tied into their warm-ups and their running workouts.
