Thanksgiving is here and so is a new tradition – the Black Family 5K!



Who: GirlTrek invites you and hundreds of women across the country to start a new and healthy tradition and host a “Black Family 5K” with your family this Thanksgiving. Aunties, uncles, grandparents and neighbors will gather after dinner on Thursday or during the holiday weekend to walk together.

What: Joining is super fun and easy. GirlTrek provides everything you need: Race shirts, customizable bibs, and for the first 100 families to register, a shiny medal for the winner!

When: Most walks will happen on Thursday after dinner or Friday morning. A few are happening Saturday morning too.

Where: Host your own family 5K and spread the word across the country!

How: Follow these three east steps:

Step 1: SPEAK UP

Tell the GirlTrek family “I’m In!” Share your favorite outdoor selfie or action shot on Twitter, Instagram, and Twitter with the hashtag #GirlTrek!



Register with your family by completing this registration form 

Once you and your family have registered, don’t forget to print your bibs!



Create a Facebook event, so that your family members can start RSVPing.

Then, go for a walk with your family. Take pictures and share your joy on social media to inspire others.
