LIVE RACE UPDATE: With COVID-19 infection rates showing a dramatic increase in recent weeks and so much uncertainty for the immediate future, we have made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel the live option for the Thin Mint Sprint, Tagalong Trot and Samoa Challenge on January 9 at the Safety Harbor Marina. 

We will still hold the virtual event as described below. 

We appreciate everyone who registered and we share your disappointment. Please know that our top priority is the health and safety of not only those who attend our events and their families, but the communities we serve.

Those who have already registered for one of the live races will receive a separate email with instructions on how to select one of the following options:

  • Transfer to the virtual race
  • Receive a full refund
  • Donate your registration fee to the council

We thank everyone for their involvement with this annual fundraiser that provides support to Girl Scout programming and opportunities for thousands of families throughout our region. We look forward to seeing everyone posting their virtual run photos and sharing their times.

In early December, we will be following up with all virtual runners with details on packet pickup dates and locations along with providing instructions for those who wish to have their packets shipped directly to them (fees apply).

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Denise Pare

Join Girl Scouts of West Central Florida for our eighth annual Thin Mint Sprint, Tagalong Trot, and Samoa Challenge. Now in January! When you register to run, your entry supports the development of critical skills and offers life-changing experiences to thousands of girls throughout west central Florida.

You can choose to run a virtual race at your convenience. If you run between January 9 and 31, 2021, you can post your race times and photos to a Girl Scouts of West Central Florida social media account and be entered into a drawing to win* a Girl Scout Cookie Prize Pack.

All registrants will receive a T-shirt and race bib. All registered Girl Scouts grades K-12 will receive a free patch. Participants who registered by November 15, 2020 will receive a medal with their packet! Race packets (race bib, T-shirt, and medal, if applicable) will be available for pick up before January 9, 2021 at multiple locations (TBD) or can be shipped directly (fees apply).

Contact Denise Pare if you have any questions about the event. Contact Clara Moll if you'd like to be a sponsor.

All registrants will receive an email in the coming weeks with more information regarding race packet pickup locations and shipping options.
