Finish Line Fun - Get ready for the Thin Mint Sprint! Girls will participate in level-specific activities to help them earn their Legacy Athlete Badge and prepare them for the Thin Mint Sprint! Girls will receive information on how to complete their badge work in time for the Thin Mint Sprint on September 30, 2017. Participation in the Thin Mint Sprint is encouraged but not a requirement for this event.
Faster Than Fiona- Lace up those running shoes! Could you be faster than Fiona? GSNI’s CEO, Fiona Cummings, has a ton of energy, and she’s always up for a challenge! Any Girl Scout (K-12) who finishes the 2-Mile Walk faster than Fiona will receive a special edition patch commemorating the achievement, plus participate in a special meet-and-greet with Fiona at the finish line!
Online Registration will close at midnight on Thursday, September 28. Runners and walkers may still register as walk-ins on the day of the race!
We look forward to seeing you at the 13th Annual Thin Mint Sprint, and we thank you for supporting the 15,000 Girl Scouts who benefit each year from this fundraiser!
