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.

Our Spring 2018 season has come to an end.  144 hopping, skipping , running girls headed towards their limitless potential with 55 AMAZING volunteer coaches leading the charge!

Our volunteers are THE best and we are so grateful for all that they do!

Fall 2018 sites are forming!  Want to bring GOTR to your school?  Contact Mary Bentley at mary.bentley@girlsontherun.org to learn more!
