Volunteer Registration

At the heart of Girls on the Run are amazing volunteers whose commitment and passion impact the lives of thousands of girls each year. 

We are grateful for the volunteers who have committed to volunteering at the spring 5k. At this time, we have reached capacity for race-day volunteers, but are looking for pre- and post-5k volunteers. See below. 

We also have lots of room for more runners. The 5k is a non-competitive race, open to the public with proceeds benefiting the Girls on the Run of Atlanta Scholarship Fund. So grab your friends and come run the Girls on the Run 5K on April 29 at Georgia Tech!
