Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
NOTE: The first three weeks of program registration (December 13, 2014-January 2, 2015) are our Host School Priority Registration Period. During this time, ONLY girls who attend the school where the program is being held can sign up for the program. Beginning on Saturday, January 3, 2015, any girl attending any school can sign up at any site that still has space remaining.
