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

Thank you for your interest in Girls on the Run®!  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 is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

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!
