Registration Fees

Building confidence and setting young girls down the path of a healthy lifestyle is PRICELESS! However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering the Girls on the Run program to approximately 600+ girls in the North Central West Virginia area each year. Registration is $150 per girl and includes:

  • 20 ninety-minute sessions conducted by certified GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum and lesson materials
  • A healthy snack at each session
  • Official GOTR T-shirt
  • Water bottle
  • 5K Registration fee
  • 5K Shirt
  • 5K Medal
  • Post 5K celebration

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

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?

Though our cost per particpant is over $200, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $150. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, 5K shirt, a finisher's medal, a GOTR water bottle and a healthy snack at every practice.

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 based on a sliding scale. If you need additional assistance, please email info@gotrncwv.org.

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin the week of February 27, 2023. The culminating event will be in late May, date TBA. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

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

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.
