Girls on the Run

Our Spring afterschool program for 3rd-5th/6th graders is like no other! Girls have fun, make friends, increase physical activity levles and learn important life skills they can use at home, at school and with friends. Registration for our Spring season is open February-March each year.

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 850 girls in the Snohomish County area each year. Registration is $200 per girl and includes:

  • 17 ninety-minute sessions conducted by trained GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum and lesson materials
  • A healthy snack at each session
  • Official GOTR T-shirt and reusable water bottle
  • 5K Registration fee
  • 5K Medal
  • 5K Celebration event


My child 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 program fee include?

Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, a GOTR water bottle and a healthy snack at every practice.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does financial assistance 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, financial assistance is 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 of the season is the Celebration 5K in June 2024. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your child's coaches once the season begins.

Do participants need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your child will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for someone who can, and consider joining us in a future season when they can enjoy the entire program.

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.
