Welcome to Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley

At Girls on the Run, we offer life-changing, physical activity-based after-school programs for girls in 3rd through 8th grades throughout Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. Our goal is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. During the 10 weeks from March through mid-May, the girls train for the Girls on the Run 5K run/walk while learning life skills such as healthy decision-making and teamwork. Girls on the Run is so much fun!

Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley is an independent council of Girls on the Run International, which has over 200 councils in all 50 states across the US.
