Welcome

Welcome!

PrintGirls on the Run is so much fun! We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development (PA-PYD) program designed specifically for girls in grades 3-5. The innovative, research-based curricula include workouts and games that teach important life skills while preparing the girls for a 5k. Girls are challenged to reach personal goals regardless of fitness level.

Registration fee: $100 – Scholarships available
Season begins: January 30, 2017

The Girls on the Run 5k will be on Saturday, April 8, 2017. The $100 fee includes 20 lessons, healthy snacks, t-shirt, celebration 5k, finisher’s medal, and an end of the season celebration. Space is limited and registration is on a first come, first serve basis.

Scholarships are available to families in need.
