Join us for the Run with the Girls, a 5K run/walk or 10K run in Reno, Nevada at Damonte Ranch High School. It is family friendly. This is a great event for competitive runners, recreational runners, race rookies, event veterans and walkers of all abilities.
All participants receive a unique finishers medal, sweet treat, and more!
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Girls on the Run - Sierras.
GOTR is a nonprofit whose mission is to 'inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience- based curriculum which creatively integrates running.'

View Course Map South Reno Street Map with Race Route Damonte Ranch High School Site Map The 5K and 10K courses are very runner and walker friendly. Both courses are flat, with great views of the mountains to the west, south and east and the distant downtown Reno skyline to the north.
The 5K route is a simple out and back. It starts in the parking lot outside of the DRHS football field. The course uses Western Skies Drive. You will be running and walking straight in the direction of Mt. Rose as you move toward the turnaround, then after your U-turn you will see everyone as you head back to the finish on the track inside the DRHS stadium. Please exercise caution at the turnaround. When you are making the U-turn, look out for 10K runners heading back to the finish.
The 10K route is in the shape of a lollypop. Like the 5K course, it starts in the parking lot outside of the DRHS football field and uses Western Skies Drive. But when you get to the 5K turnaround you will continue due west in the direction of Mt. Rose. You will turn right onto a paved pathway that is on the border of one of the subdivisions in that area. You will make a big circle using the paved pathways before returning to Western Skies Drive. Please note that these pathways will be well marked with volunteers, chalk arrows and signs. Then you will head back using Western Skies Drive to the finish on the track inside the DRHS stadium. Please exercise caution as you approach the 5K turnaround. There may be some 5K runners and walkers turning to head back to the finish.

Long Sleeve Race Shirt:
In an effort to keep entry fees low, a shirt is not included in your registration. We're sure you will want one because even though it is a technical-type style and material, we chose it so you can wear it any time and place you feel like it. Great deal for $20.

Race Bibs That You Can Personalize
For this event we will have unique race numbers. You will get the opportunity to personalize the race bibs by writing in your name or a personal message or decorate the bibs in some other fun way. Just don't mess with the timing chip please. Look for the Race Bib Decoration Station at the Pre-race Expo on Saturday afternoon or decorate it at home.
We will have a Run with the Girls photo station. There will be chalkboards for you to use to write your personal message. Bring your own camera for our volunteer to use to take your photo.
No strollers will be allowed on the course.
We do not allow pets in any of the heats.
