Join Girls on the Run at The Neighborhood School this Spring!

At Girls on the Run, girls learn life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. Trained volunteer coaches use a research-based curriculum to teach lessons through discussion, activities and running games. Girls meet twice a week for ten weeks, and the season concludes with a 5k run/walk that every girl in the program successfully completes.

Any girl grades 3-5 can join! Your child does not have to be sporty or athletic-- all ability levels are welcome.  

The program fee of $300 includes 20 lessons, a program t-shirt and materials, healthy snacks after each lesson, and registration for the Girls on the Run 5k run/walk event.  Registration is available online at gotrnyc.org/register.  Note: Scholarships are available.   

Season Details:
  • Girls on the Run practice will take place on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 3:00- 4:30 beginning on March 13th!
  • Practice will take place at the Neighborhood School and Tompkins Square Park. Pickup for all participants is in the lobby of the school. 
  • On inclement weather days, the team will still hold practice indoors.

Registration is now open at gotrnyc.org/register! Team size is 8 to 20 girls.
