Girls on the Run

  • Resolve to help your 3rd -5th grade daughter activate her limitless potential this year. Register here for Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  Girls will train for and run a 5k race while exploring concepts of competence, confidence, connection, character, caring and contribution. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Girls do not need to be “runners” or into running to participate as the activities are all fun, age appropriate and will build up their running ability over time.

    The Girls on the Run lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age. They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. They start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them.  Then, they look at the importance of teamwork and healthy relationships. And, finally, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world.

    There are spots open for the Fall Season of Girls On The Run of the Triangle at Wildwood Forest Elementary on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:15pm5:30pm. Don't miss out! 

    Girls on the Run is a character development and empowerment program that uses running and physical activity to introduce girls in the 3rd to 5th grades to the concepts of joy, health, and confidence.  Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run® coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society. 

    Don't let the chance for joy, health, and confidence pass by your daughter for this spring season. The season starts the week of September 25th, and sessions are Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:15pm – 5:30pm.
