Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade.  We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run – Dayton is a council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary, Ironman triathlete. Today, there are nearly 160 locations across the U.S. & Canada, with new locations added each year.  Girls on the Run® combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in the critical pre-teen years and beyond.

Watch our local video to see why the Greater Dayton community has so strongly embraced the Girls on the Run program.
