Welcome to Girls on the Run of Fairfield County!

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

Though it’s cold and snowy outside my window, my calendar says it’s time to plan for our Spring ’18 GOTR season!  Join us!  Find out why we always cheer, “Girls on the run is so much fun!”

Our Spring 2018 season will begin the week of March 19 or March 26, and end the week of June 4 or June 11, depending on the site.
