MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - More than 250 people participated in the Spring Girls on the Run of the Flint Hills 5K on Saturday morning.

It’s been more than a year since they have been able to complete their season with an in-person celebration.

“It feels amazing because last year was virtual so we couldn’t run with anybody.” Amanda Arnold Elementary School Paraeducator and GOTR Coach, Vicki King says.

The girls participating in Girls on the Run of the Flint Hills are students in both Manhattan and Wamego school districts, coming together to celebrate the end of their season.

To complete the 5K each girl had a running buddy, and community members were invited to participate in the 5K and help celebrate the end of the season.

Results from the 5K can be found here.
