Welcome to an awesome and life-changing program for young girls throughout Atlanta!

Thank you for your interest in Girls on the Run! Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade.  Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running. 

We use the power of running to provide girls with the tools to:

    • Celebrate their bodies
    • Honor their voices
    • Recognize their gifts, and
    • Activate their personal power

Girls on the Run of Atlanta is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary and Ironman triathlete.  Today there are more than 200 locations across the United States and Canada, with new locations added every year.

Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond. Through interactive activities such as running, playing games and discussing important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves.   

More than a running program… We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams!
