The YWCA Mankato Kids K has a new route this year!

Anyone who has been to a Girls on the Run 5K knows that it is unlike any other running event. It is a celebration of and for the girls who are completing a ten week season of the Girls on the Run program. Positive energy abounds as the girls dance to warm-up music, get their hair “happied” and their faces painted, and gather with their teammates as they head to the starting line.

Our 5K is a non-competitive event that will bring a smile to your face! The event is open to all ages and genders and includes free family-friendly activities and a Kids K. You will be so glad you joined us!

Now READY. SET. GOAL. 

Did you know it takes almost 200 volunteers to put on this event? Check out options to help here: VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP
