About Girls on the RunÂ®
The 12-week after-school program, offered each spring and fall, helps 8- to 12-year-old girls get to know themselves and understand their place and value in the community by teaching a curriculum that combines training for a 5K run/walk event with self-esteem enhancing workouts that encourage emotional, social, and physical development.
GOTR was founded by Molly Barker, a four-time Hawaii Ironman triathlete. Molly used her expertise in counseling and teaching, combined with extensive research on adolescent issues, to develop the program’s curriculum. What started in 1996 with 13 participating girls has grown to over 150 councils across 43 states, serving over 52,000 girls each year.
