What is Girls on the Run?

Girls on the Run meets in small groups 2X a week for healthy snacks and lessons in life skills, understanding themselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how girls connect with and shape the world. Each meeting, we also focus on  physical activity running games, including building skills for a 5K event. The curriculum is taught by certified and trained Girls on the Run volunteer coaches which include school teachers and staff, parents, and community members.  

What is the commitment?  When does the team meet?  

Girls gather as a team with volunteer coaches twice per week, from September 9  – Nov 16. On Nov 16, all 100+ teams in the Cincinnati area come together for the GOTR 5K in downtown Cincinnati!  

Because each lesson combines running activities with character development topics, and builds upon the previous lesson, girls MUST be able to commit to BOTH days per week for the entire season. With a limited number of spots on each team, please only register your participant if you can make this commitment.
