The 16th annual Go Girl Run in Omaha is Monday, Sept. 2, at 8 a.m.
Only women are invited to participate in the 5K. Organizers created the race as a capstone event to the Omaha Running Club's 10-week Step Into Running program, which introduces women to running. The run is also open to women who are not enrolled in the program.
The course is out-and-back on the Keystone Trail, near Peak Performance at 78th and Cass Streets. Each runner will receive a carnation at the finish line. A pancake feed with the Pancake Man will follow.
There is also a 1-mile event and a Kids Run. Boys and girls under the age of 14 are welcome to participate.
The event benefits the Hope Center for Kids, an organization in north Omaha that helps youth through “education, employability, collaboration and faith.”
Organizers expect more than 100 people to participate. Register online through Thursday. You can sign up in person during packet pick-up at Peak Performance between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday or the morning of the event.
