Girls on the Run East Central Ohio believes our program is for every girl, and we make every attempt to serve all girls, especially those who may not be able to participate in other programs due to financial reasons. We offer financial assistance by way of scholarships and a 3-Payment plan.

My girl 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 forward!

What does the program fee include?

Though our cost per participant is $275, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $170. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, a GOTR cinch sak, water bottle, lap counters, a GOTR t-shirt, entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, and a healthy snack at every practice.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to participate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are 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 either Tuesday, Sept. 5, or Wednesday, Sept. 6, depending on your site practice schedule. The culminating event will be the 5K on Saturday, November 11, at 10:30 a.m. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

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

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she 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 $40,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
