Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls in 3rd - 5th grade. Teams of 10-15 girls meet twice weekly after school for 10 weeks. Each lesson focuses on themes that girls can relate to such as making and being friends, recognizing and managing emotions, and working as a team. Our trained coaches use running to inspire and motivate, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Each season concludes with the girls and their running buddies completing a 5k run, which provides a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
The fall season will start the week of September 23rd and we will meet every Monday and Wednesday after school from 3:30-4:45pm. The season-ending 5K takes place on Saturday, December 7th in Columbia, MD. You can register now at https://www.gotrcentralmd.org or pick up a paper registration form once the school year begins.
Program registration fee is $175 and includes 5K registration, water bottle, t-shirt, and all program materials. Financial assistance is available. Questions? Call 443-864-8593 or email us at Emily_Petersen@hcpss.org, Dietra_TylerJohn@hcpss.org, or Olive_Baker@hcpss.org.
