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?

Though our cost per particpant is almost $200, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $165. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, daily activity journal, GOTR water bottle, healthy snack at every practice, GOTR program t-shirt, bib entry into the season-ending 5k for the GOTR girl and participating Budddy, and 5k finisher's medal.

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 families in need. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on your individaul situation. If the costs still won't work for your family, you can reach out to our office to disucss additional support. 

Do you offer a payment plan option for the program?

We offer two different payment plan options. You can choose to pay your registration fee over 2-months or 3-months. The first payment is made at the time of registration, the second payment will be processed the first week of April. For the 3 payment option, the final payment will be processed the first week of May. 

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin in late February. The culminating event will be the 5k on Saturday, May 17. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to attend both days 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.

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 program scholarships for families in need. Click the Donate button above to sponsor a participant this season.
