Girls on the Run Sites and Registration

The Finish Line is Just the Beginning

Registration for the Fall 2020 GOTR-HC season will open on August 24, 2020!  For more information about dates for the 2020 season, please visit the Important Dates section on our homepage!

Each site is limited to the first 12 girls who complete on-line registration. For the fall semester of 2020, GOTR is operating programs at each of the sites listed below. To accommodate needs and preferences due to restrictions of COVID-19, some sites will be in person and others will be virtual. Sites that are listed as ‘in person’ will have the option of switching to a virtual format if need arises.  Once the 12 person limit is met for each site, girls may either be placed on a waiting list or may register for a different site. 

To be eligible for Girls on the Run (GOTR), girls must be in the 3rd-5th grade. To be eligible for Heart and Sole (H&S), girls must be in middle school.

 The 2020 GOTR fee structure, which includes 16 classes, 5K registration, journal, water bottle, medal, goody bag and t-shirt is as follows:

  • $25: Girls who qualify for free or reduced lunch (proof may be required) 
  • $75: Girls with extenuating financial circumstances (will be required to write an explanation statement)
