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.

Or, join us in person on January 9, 2021 at the Safety Harbor Marina** to run our chip-timed loop course. The course winds through quaint downtown streets and along the scenic waterfront of Old Tampa Bay.

All virtual and in-person registrants will receive a T-shirt and race bib. All registered Girl Scouts grades K-12 will receive a free patch. Participants registered by November 15, 2020 for a virtual or live race will receive a medal, so enter today! Race packets (race bib, T-shirt, and medal, if applicable) for either the virtual or live event 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.
