Parent Corner

Welcome to the Parent Corner!

This is where you will find information on the season for you and your girl.  Check back frequently as we’ve always got something exciting to share !  Also, please be sure to read the Parent Scoop newsletters sent to your email.  We will share information about the lessons as well as important dates and information for upcoming activities.

Grown Up Guide:

The Grown Up Guide is a tool for parents.  The guide provides a brief overview of the lesson topics for each week along with questions and conversation starters.

End of Season 5K Event: 

At the end of the season, Girls on the Run program sites from across the Front Range will come together to run their end of season 5K.  We encourage parents, friends and family to join in this event as a participant or cheering fan.  Girls from the Denver area will either run the Girls on the Run 5K at Cherry Creek High School or the BELLCO Colfax 5K.  Our Colorado Springs area programs will participate in the Women’s Distance Festival.  You should have received information in your welcome letter regarding which race your “girl” on the run will be running.  

To sign up or find more information about the 5K events and a list of which race each site is running, please visit the 5K page on our website.  NOTE: We will send home an important information sheet called Race Day Tips with specifics for that day. 

 ALL Girls on the Run participants are ALREADY signed up for their race.

**Only Parents, Friends, Family, Running Buddies need to register for the event.
