The Canton Akron Soccer Club is proud to present the Second Sole Girls on the Run 5K Fall Run/Walk! It is the culminating celebration for 100 3rd through 5th grade girls who have completed the 10-week Girls on the Run programs this fall in Stark County. In the 10 weeks leading up to the 5k, these girls train with a team of close friends to empower their inner SuperSHEroes and complete the GOTR 5k Fall Run/Walk. Our Fall 5k Run/Walk is open to BOTH SuperHEroes (our GOTR guys) & SuperSHEroes (our GOTR gals). If you are registering as a CAK participant, please make sure you are registering through the CAK link available on this page.  

If you're a GOTR dad who has ever wished to run an official GOTR 5k with your GOTR girl, here's your chance!

Please do not register your Girls on the Run participant! GOTR 5k registration is included in program registration and is nonrefundable.

About Girls on the Run

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-15 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The 20-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run® coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.

Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society, while also working together as a true team to complete the Girls on the Run 5K Run/Walk at their own pace.

We currently offer two programs--Heart & Sole (for 6th through 8th grade girls) and Girls on the Run (for 3rd through 5th grade girls). We'd love to have you join in the fun. See how you can be a part of the Girl Power movement at
