FAQ’s

I don’t see our school listed under locations.

Girls on the Run is growing and expanding to new schools every year.  We need your help though.  If we don’t already have a program at your school, please consider starting a site.  We make it easy.  Go to Start a Site.

Can my daughter attend a program at another school?

Unfortunately, due to school bell times and transportation, we limit participation to girls that attend the participating school.  Please consider starting a program at your school.

How much does it cost?

The 10 week program costs $170 and includes the cost of the final 5K event.  That is only $8.50 per session.

Where do the fees go?

The fees go to curriculum and program materials, coaches training and background checks, 5K race fees, insurance, facility use fees and other general program costs.

When does the program start?

We have two seasons each year.  Our spring season is March – May and our fall season is September – November.

Can my daughter start mid-season?

No, it is very important to the Girls on the Run experience that all girls on a team start at the beginning of the season.

I want to start a program, but we don’t have coaches.  What can we do?

We can help.  We have a Coaches Needed Flyer you can post at your school.  It is amazing how many women are interested in volunteering with Girls on the Run.  You just need to ask.  We also have some community volunteer coaches that we can place at your school.
