Girls on the Run Emblem

What is Girls on the Run (GOTR)?
Girls on the Run is a life changing, 10 week after-school program for girls in 3rd-6th grade that encourages girls to recognize their individual strengths, gain a better understanding of who they are, what's important to them, and celebrate connections with others while training to run and complete a 5K!

When is Girls on the Run?
The GOTR season starts the week of March 2 and culminates in the end of season GOTR 5K on Saturday May 16, 2020, at Vasona Park in Los Gatos. Our team will meet on Mondays 2:20 PM - 3:50 PM and Thursdays 12:40 PM - 2:10 PM. Spring Break: no practice scheduled. (lessons take place on campus). Girls must attend both practices in their entirety; part-time attendance (consistently arriving late, leaving early, or attending just one day per week) is not allowed. If your girl will be unable to attend all of 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.

The cost of the program is $230 which includes 20 ninety-minute sessions conducted by certified GOTR volunteer coaches, curriculum and lesson materials, official program T-shirt and water bottle, registration fee for the GOTR 5K, personalized race bib, finisher's medal, and post-5K celebration.
