Be a Running Buddy!

This season’s 5K will be on May 10 at 10 a.m. at Welcome Stadium. During the 5K, each of our girls will have a Running Buddy by their side for support.  Many of our girls will have a family member running with them, but others need a community volunteer to be their Running Buddy.  All volunteer Running Buddies must be 18 years of age and female (although other volunteer opportunities for our 5K are available for men!) INTERESTED?

It’s as easy as 1 – 2 -3!

  1. Complete a volunteer application at: On the form, select “Running Buddy” as an “Area of Interest.”
  2. Complete a background check.  All volunteers who are not family members or friends are required to complete a background check. A link for the background check will be forwarded to you upon receipt of your volunteer application.  We pay for it, and the volunteer completes it privately online.  It’s quick and easy.
  3. Register for the Girls on The Run of Dayton 5K at:
