About Girls on the Run

This spring, nearly 200 Austin-area girls will take part in Girls on the Run, a program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  In the words of one Girls on the Run participant, “Girls on the Run taught me that I am the boss of my brain.” Our girls learn, grown and run, achieving their goals with the completion of a 5K race each season.

In 2016, 62 percent of local participants received scholarship assistance from Girls on the Run, made possible through community support. The cost per girl for one season of Girls on the Run is $150 and includes:

  • 20 lessons lead by trained volunteers
  • All necessary curriculum materials and snacks for each practice
  • Girls on the Run program shirt and reusable water bottle
  • 5k entry fee, shirt and finishers’ medal

Your donations to Girls on the Run Austin will help create a life long love of running and empowerment for these amazing young girls!
