My participant isn't a big runner; is this program for them? OR My participant is already a skilled runner. Is this program for them?

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 foward!

What does the program fee include?

Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters, additional practice materials, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, and a GOTR water bottle.

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 particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it. 

The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family. You can also complete our Financial Assistance Form or call our office at 703-273-3153 to discuss with a member of our program staff. 

View our Financial Assistance Options.

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin in September. The culminating event will be the 5K in November. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your participant's coaches once the season begins.

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

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your participants will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for one who can, and consider joining us in a future season when they 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, GOTR NOVA relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
