Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
The dynamic 10 week program combines training for a 5k (3.1 mile) running race with education and interactive discussions about critical issues that will affect pre-teen girls as they reach adolescence. Trained volunteer coaches teach life lessons to girls through fun and clever running games and workouts.
Our goal is that girls completing the program are physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger and better prepared to overcome the challenges and pressures of adolescence and beyond.
