Thin Mint Sprint 5K and Cookie Relay

Join Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland for our annual Thin Mint Sprint 5K & Cookie Relay and help support Girl Scouts across the state! All proceeds from this event go toward continuing the mission of Girl Scouts – to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

By participating or volunteering for this popular annual event, you’re also a part of our healthy-living initiative that engages our girl members, their families, volunteers, Girl Scout supporters, and the community at large.

Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s second annual Thin Mint Sprint 5K & Cookie Relay will be April 18, 2015, at the council’s headquarters, 360 Lexington Road in Wichita.

This unique event includes 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. Get your team ready to conquer our cookie obstacles! 

Dress in your best Thin Mint costume to be eligible to win our costume contest, and enjoy fun activities for the whole family in the Family Fun Zone at the start/finish area. Each participant of the 5K will receive a commemorative Thin Mint Sprint T-shirt, a box of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, and delicious post- race refreshments (yes, cookies included!)
