Thank you for your interest in bringing a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program to your local school or facility! Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. 

In small teams of 8-15 girls, we teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The curriculum is taught by trained Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.

Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness and build confidence through accomplishment. Important social, psychological, and physical skills and abilities are developed and reinforced throughout the program. At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event which gives them a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.

We run programs in the Fall and Spring seasons. Each season runs is 10 weeks, with the girls meeting twice a week for 90 minutes each practice.  Please use the links below for more information about starting a program site or to complete the appropriate site application.
