Registration Fees

Building confidence and setting young girls down the path of a healthy lifestyle is PRICELESS!

Registration is typically $120.00 per girl, but will be free for all participants in 2024.  Due to limited space and coaches, this will be first come, first served.  Registration will close when teams are full.

My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Though our cost per particpant is $270, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $120. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, running shoes lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, and a healthy snack at every practice.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to participate! It costs approximately $280 per girl to run our program. However, thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it, and we can also provide appropriate running shoes and attire if necessary. This support allows us to only charge participants $120.00 of the $280. If you are in need of financial support, the online registration form will walk you through a few questions, and we ask that you make a $20 minimum payment.

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin in March. The culminating event will be the 5K on Saturday, May 27, 2023. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
