Girls On The Run . . . More Than A Running Program:

Girls On The Run of Atlanta was founded in the Spring of 2000 and is part of the national Girls on the Run program.  Girls on the Run is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. The programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development.  The award-winning curriculum has been featured on NBC News and in Runner’s World.

GOTR’s mission is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Our program includes running workouts and games that teach specific life skills such as how to make healthy decisions, resolve conflict and get along in a group. For girls of all athletic abilities.
