What's Happening at Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia is a non-profit organization and one of the largest independent councils of our national organization, Girls on the Run International. We are locally based in Fairfax, VA and our focus is on the girls and families of the 8 jurisdictions that comprise the Northern Virginia community we serve: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William Counties, and the independent cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Manassas and Manassas Park. Our goal is to engage the entire community to positively impact the health and well being of the girls of Northern Virginia, their families and school communities, and the volunteer coaches who serve them.
