Run for Girl Scouts!


Join us at the Thin Mint Sprint 5K and Cookie Relay on April 12 in Wichita! This unique event will include a 5K race and an exciting, fun team event - the Cookie Relay! Sign up a team of four participants for the Cookie Relay, and be ready to make your way through our 600-yard relay course. Be sure your team is prepared to conquer cookie obstacles! Dress in your best Thin Mint costume to be eligible to win the costume contest, and enjoy fun activities for the whole family in the Family Fun Zone near the start/finish area.

Registered 5K racers can enjoy perks that include a commemorative T-shirt, a package of Thin Mints, a race bib and timing chip, and post-race refreshments. 


Girl Scout girl members can participate in the Thin Mint Sprint 5K for only $15 by signing up on Ultracamp, but girls registering online should do so by April 1! Others can sign up through GoRun Wichita
