Enjoying cookies with a cold glass of milk is a childhood memory for many!  If you love Girl Scout cookies (who doesn't?) and running, you won't want to miss our first-ever Milk & Cookies Fun Run! 

This in-person UN-TIMED 5K Fun Run (or walk) will take place on Monday, April 25th at 6 pm.  This is a flexible and fun 5K run or walk around the Shoppes at South Hills parking lot with other cookie lovers.  This is a low-key and fun event and is open to runners and walkers of all levels including beginners and those considering a 5K for the first time.  

All participants will receive the following with their $15 entry fee:
- 2 Boxes of Girl Scout Cookies (your choice of flavors) 
- An awesome Fleet Feet milk mug (you supply the milk) 

Bibs can be picked up starting at 5:30 pm on Monday 4/25.  We will take a quick group photo in front of the store at 6 pm and then the fun run will start immediately after that.  Cookies and mugs will be distributed after the run.   The Girl Scouts will be on-site with a booth should anyone wish to purchase additional boxes of cookies.  

An email will be sent to all participants on Saturday 4/23 with a few pertinent details about the event.

Is the in-person event stroller-friendly?  
The run/walk will take place in the South Hills Mall parking lot and while traffic is fairly light this time of day, the roads are completely open to traffic.  We are ok with stroller participation as long as you are comfortable with the risk of being on roads that are open to traffic.  Those with strollers should also use extreme caution when approaching other runners and allow ample space, particularly on hills.  We ask that those with strollers start toward the back just so that the large pack has a chance to spread out a bit to minimize any chance of injury. 

Is this run timed? 
This is an UNTIMED fun run and although we have a 5K course, the distance is completely flexible.  This event is completely open to all paces, levels, and abilities including those working toward a 5K goal.  

Do you have a course map?  
This run takes place entirely in the Shoppes at South Hills Parking lot.  If you are looking for additional information beyond that, this probably isn't an event for you :) 

Is there a waitlist if the in-person event sells out?  
We will not have a waitlist for this event and it does generally sell out.  If you are considering registering, don't wait and miss out!  

I signed up but can't attend, can I transfer my registration? 
Yes!  Since this is an un-timed fun run you can transfer your registration. If you are reselling your space, you would handle that on your end, we don't resell spaces.  Also please note that cookie selections cannot be adjusted as orders are being placed throughout registration.  

I can't participate due to injury/illness/family emergency etc., can I get a refund or transfer my registration to another event?  
We are unfortunately unable to offer refunds or transfers, race supplies are ordered as registrations come in.  You can transfer your registration per above and you can also pick up your SWAG even if you don't make it to the event.    

What if the weather is bad? 
The event will happen rain or shine and we would only not run or delay the start time if there were dangerous conditions such as thunder & lightning.  

What if I miss the event, can I pick up my SWAG after?  
Yes, you can, anytime during normal business hours.  We just ask that you please pick it up before May 15th when everything will be purged.  

Where do the race fees go?  Does this event raise money for something? 
Each event that raises money for a specific cause will be explicitly stated, including a detailed explanation of exactly how much is going where.  For the large majority of our events though, the race fees are used to purchase the giveaway items and other goodies that make our events amazing.  We view our races and events as a marketing arm of our in-store business which means that we aren't ever really looking to make a profit on events.  This model is vastly different from most events that are profit-driven and this differentiation enables us to put all of the race fees back into the events, making them a fantastic experience for participants.  We usually go a bit over the top with food, drinks, giveaways, and other extras to ensure a great time is had by everyone!
