About Girls on the Run
At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained volunteer coaches use our research-based curricula to teach foundational lessons through dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. Our program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k event.
The 10 week program is for girls in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.
Practice Times: Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm. Practices will begin on 3/19/19 and conclude the first week of June.

Girls on the Run Program Fee and Lottery Registration Information: Our full registration fee is $145, however, through our fundraising efforts, we offer financial assistance based on annual household income. The sliding scale ranges from $20 to $145. Assistance can be requested as part of your registration.

Team size is limited. If participant registration exceeds the maximum team size during the lottery registration period, (February 1 – February 14), the registration system will randomly select girls for that team and families will be notified of their status on February 15. If spaces remain after the lottery, registration will re-open and additional girls can be added first come, first served until capacity is reached.
