Girls on the Run

Are you looking for a way to help local young ladies build self-confidence and learn how to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives? Then this opportunity is for you!

Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Girls further develop the 5 Cs (caring, character, confidence, competence and connection leading to contribution) all while preparing them to complete a 5K at the end of the season!

Each team is ran solely by volunteer coaches that have completed a training at Girls on the Run of Central Ohio headquarters in Grandview. There are varying volunteer coaching and other opportunities, depending on your time availability.  The Fall season kicks-off the week of September 10th and runs through the week of November 12th.  All of the girls, coaches and any community member that want to register will participate in the culminating 5K event on Saturday November 17th at John F. Wolfe Columbus Commons in downtown Columbus. Volunteer to help at the run ~ cheer stations, water stations, set-up, clean-up, activity stations, or as a sparkle runner to run with the girls and encourage them.

The Spring 2019 season will start on Monday, March 4th and run THROUGH the week of Monday, May 13, 2019.  Volunteer to be a coach. The Spring 2019 Girls on the Run 5k will be Sunday, May 19th, 2019.
