More than a Running Program
Girls' self-confidence plummets when they reach puberty.
Only 19% of girls have a positive association with the phrase “Like a Girl.”
Our Program in Action
Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Role Models Needed
Serving as a coach is one of the most rewarding ways to get involved with Girls on the Run. Our volunteer coaches lead their teams through the Girls on the Run-developed curriculum, stretching and running activities, and training for the end-of-season 5K. Coaches make a commitment of 2-3 hours per week for the 10 week season. We need an average of 500 volunteer coaches per season to deliver our program in Northern Virginia. We can’t do it without YOU.
For the Fall 2016 Season, Coaches are still needed to support teams in: Aldie, Alexandria, Arlington, Ashburn, Burke, Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, McLean, Reston, Vienna
