Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. The program is designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological, and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences.
We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
- Develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.
Such life skills will prevent unhealthy and risky behaviors, such as physical inactivity and negative body image, and promote positive health outcomes.

One in a Million
What if every girl knew she had a powerful light within her? And that light ignited confidence… and joy… and a belief that she can achieve anything? Be anything!
At Girls on the Run, we envision a world where all girls know their limitless potential. And more than that, we are working to make that vision a reality.
This is why we are so excited to share that Girls on the Run has served more than one million girls since our inception in 1996!
