Girls on the Run of Southeastern Michigan host sixth annual Superhero 5k on Oct. 21


The sixth annual Superhero 5k for Girls on the Run of Southeastern Michigan is the group’s fall fundraiser and raises money for their financial assistance program.  This program subsidizes program registration fees based on a family’s demonstrated financial need to ensure that ALL girls can participate in Girls on the Run!

The run is Sunday, Oct. 21 at Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter. It will be an afternoon of spectacular fun as superheroes of all strength, speeds and costumed attire soar across the finish line.

Event day registration, packet pick-up and the costume contest check-in will open at 1 p.m.   The Kids’ Dash (5 and under) begins at 2 p.m., the 1 Mile starts at 2:05 p.m. and the 5k blasts off at 2:30 p.m.

All participants who registered by midnight on Sept. 25 will be guaranteed their selected size for a Superhero 5k t-shirt.  For registrations received after Tuesday, Sept. 25th, event t-shirts are available on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last.

All 5k and 1 mile finishers will receive a Superhero medal and an official chip time.  The Kids’ Dash (5 and under) finishers will receive a Superhero toy duck.

Our Superhero costume contest will have over 20 prizes for individual and team costumes!  Wear a costume that displays your unique superpowers, dress as your favorite superhero, or gather your friends and dress as your favorite crime-fighting team!

The Superhero 5k is a fundraiser for the Girls on the Run of Southeastern Michigan scholarship fund, and participants who donate or raise over $165 will receive a locally-made custom satin Superhero cape to wear at the event!  Visit the our website to create your campaign today!
