My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, a guided journal, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, and a GOTR water bottle.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

When does the 10-week Fall 2023 season begin?

Practices will begin the week of September 11, 2023 and end early December 2023. The celebratory 5K event will be on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at Koka Booth Amphitheatre. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to be available to attend both practices each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.
For more information, please review the attendance policy below:

Because our research based curriculum builds on each previous lesson, and because a key element is relationship-building between peers and coaches, girls need to commit to attend all sessions and remain for the entire session. Parents/guardians should not register their daughters for the program if there is a known conflict, including arriving late or leaving early on a regular basis. If a girl is absent for more than four (4) practices, or is consistently late or leaves early, we reserve the right to remove the girl from the team without a refund. 

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.

Do you welcome trans girls? Gender expansive girls? What about nonbinary and gender fluid children?

We welcome children who identify as girls, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming.
