Our 10-week afterschool program for 3rd - 6th graders is like no other! Girls have fun, make friends, increase physical activity levels, and learn important life skills they can use at home, at school, and with friends. Registration for our spring season opens in January.

Registration Fees

Building confidence and setting young girls down the path of a healthy lifestyle is PRICELESS! However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering the Girls on the Run program to approximately 500 girls in the Inland Northwest area each year. Registration is $180 per girl and includes:

  • 20 ninety-minute sessions conducted by certified GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum and lesson materials
  • A healthy snack at each session
  • Official GOTR T-shirt and water bottle
  • 5k Registration fee
  • 5k Medal
  • Post 5k celebration

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 camp registration fee include?

Your camp program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including Camp GOTR curriculum and journals, a Camp GOTR t-shirt, a re-useable water bottle, and a healthy snack each day.

We can't afford the camp 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 particpate! 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. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin in March. The culminating event will be the 5K on Saturday, June 3rd. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to attend every day of camp in order to participate?

Yes! Since space is limited, if your girl will be unable to attend all days of her camp week, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire camp experience.

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.
