Thank you for your interest in bringing a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program to your local school or facility! Girls on the Run is a character development program for girls in grades 3-8 that uses physical activity as a tool to introduce healthy lifestyle choices. The focus of the program is on increasing the girls’ self-respect and enhancing their confidence through an experienced based curriculum facilitated by trained Coach Mentors. We hold our program in the spring and fall seasons. The season runs for 10 weeks, with the girls meeting twice a week for 75-90 minutes each session.

  • Girls on the Run Harford and Cecil Counties
  • Signup Deadline is 2/5/2018

About This Event

Our programs run twice a week for 10 weeks. We have a spring season and a fall season, and we have two separate programs: one for girls in grades 3-5 called Girls on the Run, and one for girls in grades 6-8 called Heart & Sole. Our ideal locations include elementary schools, middle schools, and community centers. The program location is responsible for providing:

A contact person at the site to coordinate with GOTRHCC and the coaches. Ideally this person will be a site employee but NOT also a coach. The site coordinator will be responsible for distributing registration and program information. GOTR provides all marketing and registration materials.

A safe place for running. Note: This does not have to be a track; a field or gym is acceptable. However, it is necessary to measure off part of that area on occasions when lessons require running at certain distances (e.g. 1 mile, 5k).

A rain site (gym, covered outdoor area, hallway, etc.).

Help recruit at least two coaches to be trained by GOTR. We provide the training, curriculum materials, background checks and CPR/First Aid certification for all coaches. It is mandatory that ALL head coaches be trained and CPR/First Aid certified.
