Thin Mint Sprint 5K and Cookie Relay

Join Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland for our Thin Mint Sprint 5K Run/Walk & Cookie Relay each year in April, and help support Girl Scouts across the state! By participating or volunteering for this event, you’re also a part of our healthy-living initiative that engages our members, their families, volunteers, Girl Scout supporters, and the community at large.

This annual event at the council’s headquarters, 360 Lexington Road in Wichita, attracted nearly 300 Thin Mint Sprint participants in 2016, plus many more who participated in the Cookie Relay and volunteered at the event in support of Girl Scouts. Race results can be found at goracetiming.com, and take a look at our Flickr album to see photos of the FUN!

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.

You can have fun participating in the 5K run/walk, or sign up a team of four for the 600-yard Cookie Relay. Dress in your best Thin Mint costume to be eligible to win our costume contest, and enjoy activities for the whole family in the Family Fun Zone at the start/finish area.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored, supported and participated in the 2016 Thin Mint Sprint, and stay tuned for more details on our 2017 event!
