About This Event

Each season Girls on the Run has dynamic coaches who volunteer their time to guide and mentor girls so that they are prepared to become happy, healthy, self-confident adolescents and adults. Coaches need not be runners; they just need to be individuals who want to be a positive influence and who are committed to developing and celebrating our youth.


The volunteer commitment is for a ten week season, beginning during the week of February 5 and finishing with the Girls on the Run 5k during the first weekend of May. Coaching a team during a season requires a time commitment of 1.5-2 hours, twice a week after school. These days differ from team to team, with each site establishing its meeting days. Most teams meet immediately after school either on Mondays/Wednesdays or Tuesdays/Thursdays each week for ten weeks. Coaches must complete the mandatory 5-hour in-person training with an additional 1-hour online component before the season begins.
